This part of ISO provides a selection of suitable test methods from those available for the measurement of contamination gases in compressed air. The applicable ISO standards you may use to benchmark your equipment’s .. ISO specifies the test method for gaseous contaminant content. Find the most up-to-date version of ISO at Engineering

Handheld portable hygrometers for measuring dew point in compressed air are more readily available than when ISO was written in ISO describes several methods for measuring water vapor, the level of uncertainty, and the detection range. There are so many different words to describe oil.
Terms and conditions for Customized compilation of standards Contact us Accessibility. Oil vapor is discussed in Chemical indicator tubes can be used only as a preliminary method they lack the sensitivity and specificity required for quantitation at low levels.
This method is time and 5873-6, but if performed by an accredited laboratory, the method provides customers with a third party, ISO accredited laboratory report. The analytical method in ISO requires dissolution of the oil on the membrane by an unspecified solvent and analysis of the resulting solution by infrared spectrometry. Kso promotes proper use of air compressors with various educational tools, while ISO is directed at the very specific areas of compressed air purity and test methods, which this article will address.
Operation is straightforward and typically takes about 10 minutes per sample. This gravimetric method of analysis must take 8537-6 consideration the influence of temperature, pressure, water vapor and other contaminants that may be present. The sampling procedure as described in Annex A includes a membrane holder installed in front of the stainless steel charcoal-filled tube, a pressure jso temperature gauge, valves, and a flow meter.
Particles can also be sampled by using a gridded membrane in a suitable holder and analyzed using an optical microscope. Detector tubes are the least expensive, portable method for determining an approximate dew point for either refrigerated or desiccant dryer systems.
Whenever a sample is taken from a compressed air outlet, it is important to ensure that the sampling process itself does not contribute to contamination. This will be represented by a length of stain that can be read using the scale printed on the detector tube.
Lighter hydrocarbons composed of five or less carbon atoms are not included in total oil purity classes. This is 857-36 crucial when attempting to meet the lower limits of particulate purity class 1.
BS ISO 8573-6:2003
The specification does not allow the presence of particles greater than 5 microns for 85733-6 classes 1 through 5. Certification of persons Do recognize your skills, register online to become certified. Microorganisms are also considered a major contaminant by CAGI, but will not be discussed in this article. Care should also be taken to avoid or minimize the loss of particles in the tubing.
Sampling and Testing for Compressed Air Contaminants | Compressed Air Best Practices
To name a few, common terminology includes condensed hydrocarbons, oil mist, oil aerosol, oil vapor, total gaseous hydrocarbons, and total volatile hydrocarbons—and the list goes on.
For more information, contact Ruby Ochoa, tel: A number of hygrometers are available, ranging from insensitive and cheap to very precise and expensive models. Depending on the pressure and flow rate available at the sampling outlet, sampling may take two or more hours to collect. While LPCs can be cost prohibitive if only a few samples are to be taken on an infrequent basis, they can be extremely helpful when a particle contamination problem exists.
Affiliation List of ICS codes. Any type of connection between the sampling apparatus and the sampling outlet should be short, straight and without dead ends. The other eight sections address sampling techniques and analytical methods for various contaminants.
Other purity classes require liters of air or less. Compressed air – Part 7: Methods listed are in preferred order.
These techniques must generally be performed on site, and may be considerably more complicated than filter sampling. Test methods for measurement of humidity. Typical testing time is between 2 minutes and 10 hours, depending on the flow rate, the pressure available, and the oil purity class limit.
