Compressed air quality according to ISO 8573.1

The quality of compressed air according to ISO 8573.1 is indicated by three digits, separated by full stops. The first digit refers to the particulate content, the second to the water content and the third to the residual oil aerosol and vapour concentration. For the inflation of tyres, compressed air of quality class 2 for both particle and oil content is sufficient. Spray gun painting and laser cutting must be performed with compressed air of class 1 for particle and oil content. For most standard applications with operating air, class 4 for water content is sufficient. However, complex process technology applications as found in food- pharmaceutical- and electronics-industry, need to be run with compressed air that meets higher standards.
