    Type: Text Slide

    • For compressors not oil lubricated, CO levels in the breathing air must not exceed 10 ppm
    • For oil-lubricated compressors, a high-temperature or CO alarm, or both, must be used to monitor CO levels
      • if only high-temperature alarms are used, the air supply must be monitored at sufficient intervals to prevent CO levels from exceeding 10 ppm
