Oxygen Cleaning is a type of cleaning used for high purity processes and oxygen-enriched environments. Organic and inorganic combustible contaminants are removed from the part to prevent fires and explosions in the workplace.

Common types of parts used in Oxygen Cleaning Process:

  • Gauges
  • Fittings
  • Tubes
  • Valves
  • Filters

There are several methods used by Carolina Filters to ensure your equipment is kept in line with stringent oxygen enriched environment cleaning standards. After receiving your parts for oxygen cleaning, we customize our cleaning methodology to your equipment, environment, and particle contamination:

  • Mechanical cleaning
  • Chemical cleaning
  • Solvent cleaning
  • Steam cleaning
  • Ultrasonic cleaning
  • Immersion and scrubbing
  • Flushing

Carolina Filters understands the importance of preventing fires and explosions in the workplace. After thoroughly cleaning your machinery parts, we validate our oxygen process by stringently checking over each part for remaining particle residue with one of the following methods:

  • Ultraviolet inspection
  • Bright light inspection
  • Wipe test

Machines and systems operating in an oxygen-enriched environment must be kept free of organic and inorganic contaminates. A failure to keep machines and their parts in strict compliance with the stringent oxygen cleaning requirements could lead to a dangerous and accidental ignition or combustion.

Companies can lower the risk of an explosion due to risky particles by using thorough oxygen cleaning methods. With decades of parts cleaning experience, Carolina Filters has the knowledge and expertise to handle these delicate cleaning services.
