ANSI / ISA—S7.0.01-1996 Compressed Air Specifications

Trace Analytics, LLC specializes in the analysis of thousands of compressed air samples each year. Many of our customers have established their own criteria by monitoring the performance of the system over a given time period, reviewing literature/specifications, evaluating equipment parameters, and determining company objectives.

Our scientifically designed compressed air testing kits make collection a simple task. Keep the small, portable kit, and return the lightweight sample via the shipping method of your choice.

ANSI / ISA—S7.0.01-1996 Air Specifications are listed below. If the specification you need is not shown, please Contact Us. We have many more air & gas specifications in our database. If you need a custom specification, Contact Us with your requirements.

ANSI / ISA—S7.0.01-1996
By Particle Size
maximum number of particles per m3
Vapor Pressure Dewpoint
>40 µm °C °F ppm
NONE < 4 < 39 ≤ 1
A maximum 40 micron particle size in the instrument air system is acceptable for the majority of pnuematic devices. Pneumatic devices that require less than 40 micron particle size shall have additional filtration. Pressure dew point at the dryer outlet shall be at least 10°C (18°F) below the minimum temperature to which any part of the instrument air system is exposed. It shall not exceed 4°C (39°F) at line pressure. Should be as close to zero as possible, and under no circumstance shall it exceed 1 ppm.
For Nuclear industry - INPO requirements include ensuring that air testing and sampling methods are performed in accordance with the most current ISO-8573 for solid particle content (particulates), humidity (dew point), oil aerosol content, and oil vapor and organic solvent content. At the optical microscope magnification used to determine compliance, the entire filter is scanned with 5 µm being the minimum particle size determined. If no particles are detected, a <5 µm value is entered. Contact Trace for details.
