Precision Instrumentation for Compressed Air Systems

The precise measurement of humidity, hydrocarbons, flow, temperature, and pressure provide the foundation for various analyses, documentation, and decisions as they relate to compressed air systems. Potential overload (e.g. excessive air velocity) or malfunctions can be detected early, quickly, and reliably, which allows for the most precise and economical optimization of all plant components. The use of superior quality, industrial grade measurement equipment eliminates all the guesswork.


METPOINT® Monitoring Systems

One can measure quality – one just needs to record it. The data logger from the METPOINT® BDL series translates process data into easily understandable statistics and graphics. You can comprehend the measured values simply and in real time and immediately implement the necessary measures as they are needed. Available from anywhere, at all times – due to complete network capability for worldwide and system overarching data transfer.

Monitoring compressed air in food processing

According to ISO 8573-1, compressed air of class 1 must not contain more than 0.01 mg/m³ of oil (liquid, aerosol or vapor). This is as little as 4% of the concentration found in normal ambient air! There are however processes, where even 0.01 mg is still too much. This is especially the case in food processing where certain applications demand that oil content in the compressed air is less than 0.003 mg/m³. There are however only a few companies that are able to monitor such low concentrations. One of them is Heinrich Nölke GmbH & Co. KG, a well-known producer of sausages.

A great plus for process safety in the pharmaceutical industry

In the pharmaceutical industry, the quality of compressed air plays a decisive role. Impurities or oil contaminations in medicaments through compressed air can quickly have fatal consequences. To improve the process safety in the production, the Pfizer production location in Freiburg, Germany, relies on continuous quality control of the compressed air by means of the METPOINT OCV residual- oil monitoring device by BEKO TECHNOLOGIES.
