High Purity Cleaning for Specialized Systems Like Tanks & Process Piping

High Purity Cleaning for Specialized Systems

High purity cleaning removes potentially hazardous particulate matter and contaminants from volatile and sensitive equipment.

Process piping is much different than the mechanical pipes used in typical buildings.  These are manufacturing systems and components that must meet stringent cleanliness requirements to operate correctly.

The degree of cleanliness necessary is greater in advanced technology environments such as aerospace, semiconductor, and biotech facilities.

The term, high purity, highlights the requirement for extremely high levels of cleanliness.

Valves, piping systems, filters, and many materials used in their construction are required to meet high purity standards when prepared, packaged, and handled under specific conditions.

For this reason, it is critical that specialized systems are installed by experienced and highly qualified installers.  All the technicians on the project must understand how to store and handle high purity materials on the job site to prevent contamination. A compromise of any aspect can lead to contamination of the entire system, failed tests, and a rejected installation.

 

High Purity Cleaning Maintenance

Highly specialized systems are susceptible to contaminant and residue build-up.  It is imperative to eliminate any contaminants that can lead to problems or test failures.  Develop a preventative maintenance schedule and understand the first hint of surface contamination.

What to look for:

  • Corrosion
  • Particulates
  • Film
  • Other contaminants
  • Poor lab results
  • Calibration difficulties
  • Process contamination
  • Product yield problems

 

High Purity Cleaning Applications

High purity cleaning for the installation and maintenance of manufacturing equipment and systems includes, but are not limited to the following:

  • Pharmaceutical processing equipment and fluid systems
  • Bio-pharm processing equipment and fluid systems
  • Food and beverage contract manufacturing, processing, storage, and transportation equipment
  • Semiconductor manufacturing
  • Cosmetics manufacturing, processing, and packaging
  • Gas delivery systems
  • water purification
  • Brewing and distilling manufacturing, processing, storage, and transportation equipment
  • Sterilization systems
  • Military, aerospace, and planetary science clean rooms and support systems
  • Water purification and distribution equipment
  • Vacuum, laser, and other specialized industrial system components

O2 Cleaning

O2 Cleaning for ASTM G93 and CGA 4.1

O2 Cleaning, or oxygen cleaning, the removal of contamination from equipment intended for use with liquid or gaseous oxygen. Contaminants in an oxygen-rich system can pose serious risks. O2 cleaning eliminates fire or explosion vulnerability due to flammable contaminants.  Industries use oxygen differently, and for many, it is imperative to conduct proper cleaning to avoid catastrophic failures and injuries.
