Maintaining Air Purity in Food & Beverage

The Original Compressed Air and Pure Gas Testing Laboratory

AIHA Accredited Labs

Food & Beverage Industry

Compressed air purity is essential to many manufacturing facilities in food processing, bottling and packaging operations. High-quality compressed air provides energy for pneumatic conveyer and handling systems that transport liquids and powders during the production cycle. Compressed air, ambient air and pure gas delivery systems influence the safety of wrapping, sealing, labeling and palletizing these products for shipping or storage. It’s important to know regulatory changes require compressed air and pure gas testing. SQF, BRC, GFSI, and FSMA all mandate testing of compressed air systems that come directly or indirectly into contact with products. 

This is why TRI Air Testing provides independent laboratory support for many food, beverage and packaging companies with compressed air and pure gas testing services. F&B manufacturing managers use compressed air testing equipment provided by TRI to collect compressed air samples as part of their facilities’ air quality compliance and food safety programs. The process is easy. TRI Air Testing ships the testing kit out to a facility, where the sample is taken and then sent back to the TRI Air Testing lab for results. TRI Air Testing also provides on-site support if needed.


Importance of Mold and Bacteria Testing

In addition, mold and bacteria testing is available for F&B compressed air, ambient air and pure gas delivery systems and recommended multiple times per year. It is important to keep air compressed systems clean of possible harmful bacteria that can affect food production. TRI Air Testing methodology is supported by ISO 17025:2017-accredited expert partners. Contact us for help in guiding facilities toward which ambient procedure is right based on compliance.

Here is a breakdown of the credentials and qualifications of the TRI Air Testing program that applies to all F&B manufacturing facilities:

  • ISO 17025:2017 Accredited by AIHA-LAP, LLC
  • Compliant to ANSI/ISO/ASQ 9001:2015
  • HACCP and PCQI Certified Staff
  • Wide Range Testing of Custom Specs and Programs Based on Industry
