Compressed Air monitoring equipment for continuous air sampling & Class 1 air measurement
BEKO Technologies exhibited at the AirTech Exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham in April 2014. The PIF team had the opportunity to interview their product specialist Matt Harrison about the innovative products and systems they were exhibiting.
BEKO Technologies specialise in compressed air, gas & condensate conditioning and were actually conducting a working demonstration of their compressed air monitoring equipment during the show. BEKO were taking un-treated, dry compressed air from the NEC and were putting the compressed air through their dryers, lowering the dew point to -40. The compressed air was then subject to a filter pack, which reduced the particle size to 0.1 micron. BEKO then demonstrated how their compressed air monitoring equipment could measure the compressed air in terms of flow, dew point and oil content.
Watch BEKO’s demonstration of compressed air monitoring equipment
BEKO are the only compressed air specialists who can monitor hydrocarbons continuously, down to below Class 1. ISO standards Class 1 is 0.0001 mg/m3. BEKO’s measuring equipment is well below Class 1 air.
Furthermore, BEKO are the only compressed air specialist who can continuously monitor the oil content. Competitor products only sample the air or conduct quarterly tests. BEKO’s monitoring equipment continuously samples the air, giving more accurate and reliable readings.
New product launches from BEKO Technologies
BEKO also touched on the innovative METPOINT MMA which is a new product launch for 2014. The METPOINT MMA serves to continuously and reliably monitor the quality of breathing air and has been specially designed for use within hospitals. In conjunction with measuring oil, this compact measuring device simultaneously monitors and records the limit values of O2, SO2, CO, Oxides of Nitrogen, H2O vapour and Pressure in bars.
The benefits of the METPOINT MMA for monitoring medical compressed air
The METPOINT MMA allows for the entire cycle for medical compressed air to be continuously measured. All the relevant parameters are directly and precisely indicated and the results lastingly logged. If the legally stipulated limit values are exceeded, the system will immediately release an alarm, which will be retrieved in a targeted manner or directly processed in the quality assurance system.
