ISO Standards - 12500 Air Quality

The older ISO 8573 Air Quality standard is serving the industry well by raising end user awareness of how to measure and define the quality of compressed air used. Using this, the end-user can make educated decisions as to the filtration performance required to generate a certain quality level.

ISO 8573 does not however address how manufacturers are to test and rate the filters they produce. The playing field is not level and consumers have become very confused. The new ISO 12500 filter standard addresses this issue and establishes how manufacturers test and rate compressed air filters.
