Cleaning Components, Equipment, and Systems for Oxygen Service

  • Compressed Gas Association

Abstract

The cleaning methods described in this chapter are intended for cleaning components, equipment, and systems used in the production, storage, distribution, and use of liquid and gaseous oxygen. Oxygen equipment and systems may include stationary storage tanks, tank trucks, and tank cars; pressure vessels such as heat ex changers and rectification columns; and associated piping, valves, and instrumentation. Oxygen cleaning methods also may be used to clean other oxygen service equipment such as cylinders, cylinder valves, regulators, welding torches, pipelines, vaporizers, compressors, and pumps.
