Breathing Air Testing EquipmentCompressed Breathing Air Quality Testing and Filter Maintenance

Compressed Breathing Air quality testing is there to protect you and your employees.

In many industries compressed air is used for applications in critical areas and is required to meet strict standards.  Compressed Air Purity International Standard (ISO8573-1:2010) ensures that the compressed air is free from solid particles, water and oil contaminants.

Compressed breathing air is used to protect workers from air borne contaminants including moisture, carbon monoxide and oil and oil vapours. Compressed breathing air must conform to Australian Standards AS1715:2009.   Such industries include:

  • Automotive Repairs
  • Sandblasting, Welding and Powder Coating
  • Chemical Cleaning
  • Mining, underground & confined spaces.

Annual compressed breathing air testing is necessary to ensure that it meets the Australian standard (AS1715:2009), in some states an annual inspection is a requirement of Worksafe.  It is also recommended that any filters used in the breathing air system are regularly checked and maintained in good operating conditions - if you have any concerns about your breathing air filtration please ask us - we are here to help!
