• ISA7, Instrument Air Standards Committee


    The scope of the standard generated by this committee shall be to:

    1. Establish practical instrument quality air standards.

    2. Provide criteria for production of Instrument Quality Air.

    3. Provide criteria for distribution of Instrument Quality Air.

    4. Provide criteria for testing for compliance with Instrument Quality Air standards.

    5. Provide criteria for testing pneumatic systems for integrity and responsiveness.


    The purpose of this committee is to develop, maintain, and update standards, recommended practices, and technical reports related to the use of pneumatic circuits in measurement, transmission, and control applications.

    A Word from the Chairman
