This is a characteristic of the air compressor. Most do give dry, oil-free
air. I suppose that it might be possible that some equipment is manufactured
to a more lax standard than others in this regard.
Does the ICBO report mention the applicable ASTM standards?

Can someone tell me how you can determine that the compressed air is
oil-free? And how often you do it?
