Eliminating air quality risks: free guide available

20 October 2018

Gardner Denver has released a new guide which looks at the hygiene regulations covering compressed air and offers advice on how to eliminate air quality risks. 

Available to download for free from, the guide details the standards in place governing compressed air quality and ensuring production environments remain free from potential pollutants. These include ISO 8573 – a group of international standards stipulating compressed air purity and quality – and the principles of the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP).

It also describes the benefits of oil-free compressors for sensitive production environments that require a consistent supply of contaminant-free air, and the different types of oil-free compressor technology available, including Gardner Denver’s revolutionary Ultima system.

Further methods site owners and operators can adopt to reduce contamination risks are also included, such as purchasing oil-free vacuum pumps.

Keith Atkinson, EMEAI Sales Manager at Gardner Denver, said: “Contaminated compressed air can lead to reduced performance, product spoilage and damaged production equipment, all of which can result in additional costs and unexpected downtime. We believe that by being aware of the standards that govern compressed air quality, the benefits of oil-free technology and further anti-contamination measures, businesses can avoid such issues.
