Compressed air is often overlooked as a potential source of clean room and product contamination. This webinar will give you an understanding of the different types of contamination inherent in compressed air and how to prevent each from affecting your particular system. A detailed description of a typical pharmaceutical compressed air system with its individual components is provided. Engineering schematics are included. All component functions are detailed with recommendations as to which component type is considered optimal.
The four contamination sources in compressed air are discussed. These are:
- solid particulate
- water content
- total oil content
- microbial bioburden
For each of these, the presentation will discuss the cause and effect. Suggestions are also provided for the prevention of contamination. Finally, a compilation of all FDA/EU GMP Guidances, USP/EP and ISO air standards are presented. Sampling and testing methodology for each of these specifications is discussed.
