Oil Mist Sampling & Analysis in Singapore

Air Quality Testing is performed to certify or validate the purity class of process gases with reference to ISO 8573-1:2010 or Customer’s requirement which summarises into the following three categories:

  1. Particle – impurities as small as 0.1 microns
  2. Water – moisture in the form of pressure dewpoint
  3. Oil – in the form liquid, aerosol and vapor

Particles, water, and oil in are seen as impurities that will contaminate downstream systems which leads to rejection of end-products and also the early failure of high-end machineries.

Conducting periodic Air Quality Testing will allow early detection of potential problems and at the same time provide peace of mind while maintaining a high-quality production.

  • Process Air System within customer specifications.
  • Compressed Air System (ISO 8573-1:2020):

Compressed Air Quality Testing is performed for establishing the purify class / validation of process air system using the International Standard ISO 8573-1:2020 which summarises into different classes of Dew Point Measurement, Particle Count Measurement and Oil Mist.

Industrial Compressed Air Systems

Oil Mist Sampling is collected at End of Line of Compressed Air Systems to determine the oil content of the air. The oil sample collected on the membrane filter was dissolved in a fluorocarbon solvent and analysed by Infrared Spectrophotometry.

A flowmeter is used with PVC membrane filter connected to the sampling point. Sample for 2 hours at 2L per minute and the sampling filter will be sent for lab analysis using the Horiba Oil Analyzer.

GoodTech Engineering helps companies monitor their compressed air systems and comply with applicable air quality control standards. We provide oil mist sampling and analysis for industrial purposes. Oil mist in the air is a common problem for industrial and manufacturing facilities. Locate and eliminate oil mist before it causes problems.
