Why Do I Need My Parts Oxygen Cleaned?
Components and equipment used in an oxygen system need to be properly cleaned, and packaged so that the cleanliness is maintained until installation. Having impurities in an oxygen system, especially any hydrocarbons, will make your oxygen system vulnerable to fire or explosion. The only way to protect your system and personnel is to ensure that the system is properly cleaned prior to the introduction of oxygen into the system.
