Cleaning for Oxygen Service

Cleaning for Oxygen Service is best defined as the removal of combustible contaminates from the surface of any equipment or system in oxygen service, including all parts that make up those components. These contaminates include, but are not limited to, organic and inorganic substances such as hydrocarbon material i.e. oils and greases, paper, fiber, coal dust, solvents, weld slag, rust, sand and dirt. If these contaminates are not removed properly a combustion reaction in an oxygen atmosphere or unacceptable product purity are the result.
