The Oxygen Cleaning process is a state of the art precision cleaning service that target contaminants such as particles, fibers, oils and greases, resulting in a surface so clean it must be validated on a microscopic level. The need for oxygen cleaning stems from the fact that there are environments, usually artificial, that contain highly oxidizing atmospheres. Oxygen enriched environments require not only combustible organic contamination removal, but also an optimal passive surface, which provides corrosion resistance. A passive layer surface will inhibit oxidation, thus minimizing particulate contamination.
Astro Pak has a wealth of experience and success in providing Oxygen Cleaning service for O2 enriched systems and surfaces. We regularly performs oxygen cleaning for large high-pressure gaseous oxygen systems, liquid oxygen tanks, tubing, valves, and other hardware and components. We also offer cleanliness verification with analytical methods to ensure quality effort. In addition to our onsite cleaning of your oxygen systems, we will clean liquid and gaseous oxygen components at your project location.
Pre-installation cleaning of components or piping sections with organic solvents or alkaline chelant cleaning systems work best. Astro Pak only uses approved chemistries and cleaning processes to provide certification to meet customer specifications. Oxygen cleanliness specifications are also used in a variety of other liquid and gaseous environments, including nitrogen & hydrogen storage and distribution systems.
What is the difference between Oxygen Cleaning and Precision Cleaning?
Both require that a surface be cleaned, but Precision Cleaning requires some sort of measurement or analysis of the surface cleanliness to quantify and/or validate the level of cleanliness achieved.
