Compressed air contamination is a real problem for the beverage and bottling industries

In today’s modern production facilities, the use of compressed air is often pivotal to manufacturing processes. Irrespective of whether the compressed air comes into direct contact with the product or is used to automate a process, provide motive power, package products, or even to generate other gases on-site, a clean, dry, reliable compressed air supply is essential to maintain efficient and cost effective production.

A tour of any modern beverage manufacturing facility will uncover the extensive use of compressed air, however production managers and quality managers are often unaware of the potential hazards associated with this powerful utility.

Untreated compressed air contains many potentially harmful or dangerous contaminants, which must be removed or reduced to acceptable levels in order to protect the consumer and provide a safe and cost effective production facility. Contaminants that may be a potential hazard for human consumption need to be controlled, as a lack of control could potentially result in a prosecution.
