Do the Compressed Air Quality Standards in Your Food Plant Meet GMP Published Guidelines?
Compressed air is not as clean as it appears to be. Untreated compressed air contains many potentially harmful contaminants that must be removed or reduced to acceptable levels to protect the consumer and provide a safe production facility.
Food hygiene legislation places the responsibility directly on the food manufacturer. For this reason, many companies often devise their own internal air quality standards based upon what they think or have been told are “best practices.”
The published collection of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) that relate to compressed air are confusing and difficult to wade through.
