Filter Monitors Withdrawn From JIG only from 1 July 2023, A4A phase-out to be determined.

JIG has announced in Bulletin No. 132 that Filter Monitors will be withdrawn from the JIG Standards with effect from 1st July 2023.

Update on EI 1583 7th Edition Filter Monitors

Recently, the Energy Institute (“EI”) confirmed that it will withdraw specification EI-1583 no later than December 31, 2020. However, as detailed in the attached May 2020 IATA, JIG and A4A Bulletin (“Bulletin”), EI-1583 7th edition filter monitors will remain listed in ATA103 and JIG standards. EI has also stated that existing qualifications for such filter monitors will remain valid even after the specification is withdrawn, provided that no changes are made to the design, materials, or construction. Accordingly, Parker Velcon will continue to supply previously qualified 7th edition filter monitors until such time as our barrier filter technology completes Joint

Joint Industrial Announcement on Monitors

The attached announcement from IATA, JIG & A4A provides an update on the current status of the ongoing field trials of ALL new alternative technologies for Filter Monitors.

In summary:

  • The Energy Institute (EI), has confirmed that the EI 1583 specification will be withdrawn at the end of 2020. However, due to the current unavailability of a suitable drop-in replacement for monitors, JIG & ATA103 standards will continue to
