COMMON COMPRESSED AIR CONTAMINANTS
Carbon monoxide is the most toxic contaminant in compressed air. It
enters the breathing air system through the air intake, or is produced
by overheating of piston type compressors. The air intake must be placed
away from engine exhaust or other sources of carbon monoxide.
Air contains moisture which is drawn into the compressor and enters the
air stream as a vapor. As compressed air flows through the system, it
cools, causing the vapor to condense in the face piece or helmet.
Moisture combines with oil and solid contaminants to form sludge, which
can clog or damage system components. Water also causes rust in
pipelines, and can freeze in cold weather to block air flow.
Oil is a major contaminant in systems using lubricated compressors. In
reciprocating compressors, lubricating oil applied to cylinders causes
small droplets by the shearing action of the piston to enter the air
system as a mist. Oil mist can cause breathing discomfort, nausea and
pneumonia, and create unpleasant taste and odors. Centrifugal
compressors are oil free.
