One of the world’s foremost authorities on liquid and gas filtration, purification and separation, domnick hunter, is offering a guide to ISO air quality classes to provide environmental and safety guidelines for companies using compressed air.
The guide may be particularly useful to companies contemplating compressed air upgrades during maintenance shutdowns, domnick hunter, which has more than 40 years experience in compressed air purification technology and a full branch operation headquartered in Melbourne serving Australasia.
Domnick hunter’s award- winning compressed air filtration and separation products are manufactured within an ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001 environment and the company has been instrumental in the development of international standards for compressed air and filter testing.
According to domnick hunter, this extensive knowledge base means that domnick hunter is well placed to advise businesses about ISO 8573.1:2001 air quality Classes.
Compressed air is an essential power source that drives the tools and machines that industry depend on. Contaminants found naturally in atmospheric air such as water vapour and airborne dirt particles are intensified when air is compressed.
Businesses understand that these abrasive contaminants build up over time and can contribute to premature machinery wear and affect the end product. However, when it comes to sourcing an effective filtration system that will remove contaminants to ensure product quality and protect valuable equipment assets, understanding the most up to date ISO standards can be time consuming and complex.
The new 12-page guide aims to simplify understanding of the international standard ISO 8573.1:2001 air quality classes and its relationship to particulate, water and oil in the compressed air system.
The easy-to-use guide details the differences between various filtration techniques from coalescing depth filtration and membrane filtration to adsorption filtration and compressed air drying. The guide recommends which filter types are most suited to a range of applications and includes useful diagrams of model compressed air systems.
