Breathing air must be guaranteed safe in the health care industry, because some patients can't remove it if it isn't, leading to the possibility of unnecessary deaths.

In 1970 Congress passed 30CFR, PartII, SubpartJ, 11.121(b) which states, "Compressed gaseous breathing air shall meet the applicable minimum grade requirements for Type I gaseous air set forth in the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) 'Commodity Specification for Air G-7.1', (Grade D or higher quality)", making periodic testing of compressed breathing air a law.

CGA G-7.1 Grade N has been the adopted standard by the healthcare industry and the United States Pharmacopeia. Grade N is one of the strictest standards to meet.

Rocket Air Labs has the equipment to test medical grade breathing air and is proud to help medical staff everywhere keep their patients safe.
