Airline Respirator Compressed Breathing Air Specifications

Trace Analytics, LLC specializes in the analysis of thousands of compressed breathing 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. The following are some commonly used Airline Respirator Compressed Breathing Air Specifications. If the specification you need is not listed below, please Contact Us. We have many more air & gas specifications in our database. If you need a custom specification, Contact Us with your requirements.

(1) Water content is not specified nor reported. This specification is intended for applications that do not require water content. CGA G-7.1 Note 6: "The water content of compressed air required for any particular QVL [grade] can vary with the intended use from saturated to very dry."
(2) Water content is not specified but is reported. This specification is intended for applications that do not require water content. CGA G-7.1 Note 6: "The water content of compressed air required for any particular QVL [grade] can vary with the intended use from saturated to very dry."
(L) CSA Z180.1-13, 14.3.9: "Compressed breathing air at pressures less than 15.3 MPa (2216 psig) shall have a pressure dew point at least 5 °C (9°F) below the lowest temperature to which any part of the compressed breathing air pipeline or respirator can be exposed at any season of the year . ." If not provided on the Data Sheet, the lowest temperature is assumed to be 0°C and the pressure 100 psig.
(N) CSA Z180.1-13, 14.3.9: "The air delivered by an ambient air system operating at pressures at or below 103.4 kPA (15 PSIG) is not required to meet this pressure dew point requirement specified in this Clause." (of 5°C (9°F) below the lowest temperature).
(O) 29 CFR 1910.134(i)(5) The employer shall ensure that compressors. . .minimize moisture content so that the dew point at 1 atmosphere pressure is 10°F below the ambient temperature. If the ambient temperature is not provided, 0°F is used.
