BCAS Food Grade Air Standards & Specs
Food Grade Compressed Air & Gas Specifications
Trace Analytics, LLC specializes in the analysis of thousands of compressed air & gas 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.
BCAS Food Grade Air Purity Compressed 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.

|400,000||6,000||100||≤ +3||≤ +37||≤ 0.1|
|Microbial Contaminants||Hazard analysis shall establish the risk of contamination by microbiological contaminants from compressed air. The level of control identified as being required over microbiological contaminants in the compressed air shall be detected using the test method specified in ISO 8573-7.|
|Footnotes||(P) Particle classes 1-5 may not be employed if particles >5 micron are present according to ISO 8573-1.|
