oxygen cleaning

Oxygen Cleaning for Contaminant-Free Systems

Oxygen cleaning is not cleaning with oxygen; it is the cleaning of equipment, valves, pipes, and systems that are intended for use in the production, storage, distribution and use of gaseous or liquid oxygen.

It is widely used for the medical, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical, aerospace and other compressed gas industries for safety and product purity.

Industrial oxygen contains a much higher amount of O2 than that in the air we breathe, and it is highly combustible.  Therefore, if contaminants are present in oxygen-rich environments they can present serious risks.  Oxygen cleaning removes impurities such as dirt, dust, weld slag, oils, greases, and other contaminants to ensure that the parts meet the highest standard of cleanliness to reduce the risk of causing human harm, fire or explosion.

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.
