defined levels of compressed air

Bill I just ask a question and I forgot to ask the main question I had. I am older. I would like to know if there is a governing agency that sets what the terms low, medium and high compress air is set at.Example, Like 0-100 is low pressure, 100-600psi is medium pressure and 600psi to *** is high pressure. I looked on your site and the web and I couldn't find what is considered to be low,medium and high pressure for compressed air.

Thank You
Thomas Darling
To my knowledge there are no official bodies that define compressed air along these lines, Thomas.

You might want to explore the NFPA further, but I don't know of any.

The USSR defined low as up to about 145psi and medium up to 1450.

US federal (NASA, Navy, etc.) specs are about twice that.

The EU probably has their own, but I didn't come across one.

Maybe the UN has one too, but I rather doubt it.
