    Significance and Use

    Clean compressed air is required to prevent contamination of coating materials and surfaces being prepared for coating. This test method is a visual examination technique for determining oil or water in compressed air. Other types of contamination may require additional analytical techniques for detection.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method is used to determine the presence of oil or water in compressed air used for abrasive blast cleaning, air blast cleaning, and coating application operations.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard statements, see Section 4.
