AIRSAVE ULTIMATE – and DIN EN 12021: 2014
For many years little attention was paid to the monitoring of breathing-air. DIN 3188 and the later European Standard DIN EN 12021 were considered as more or less discretionary provisions. Still many operators do not realize their responsibility and the consequences of their attitude.
Most operators settle for checking concentrations of contaminants once or several times a year with detector tubes and measuring saturation in the dryer cartridges.
If they carefully read this and other international standards, they would see that this is not sufficient. The European Standard 12021-2014 is absolutely mandatory and every operator of a filling station must ensure that breathing-air meets the provisions of the standard at all times.
Many operators still do not consider the standard to be mandatory, and only a few of them buy and install one of the optional monitoring systems manufacturers offer.
Already in 2009 IDE-Compressors Manufaktur was the very first compressor manufacturer to introduce and market a compressor-integrated permanently working online-monitoring system.
IDE Compressors has always been conscious of our responsibility as a manufacturer of breathing-air compressors – since September 2016 we deliver all stationary professional compressors of the IDE line with the new and refined IDE ULTIMATE online air-quality monitoring system with HMI and touchscreen as standard equipment.
