Cleaning for Oxygen San Diego
San Diego can boast of being home to a vibrant cluster of manufacturing entities that embrace a plethora of industries from defense and aerospace to shipbuilding, medical devices, and craft brewing to name a few. These venues utilize pressurized or pure oxygen to bring manufacturing processes to fruition, with the main industrial application of oxygen being combustion. Without oxygen, manufacturing venues from San Diego to Houston to Boston would become impotent.
One of the paramount concerns with the utilization of oxygen is whether or not cleaning for oxygen services are implemented as regularly as they should be. If not, debris accumulation within oxygen system components becomes potential fuel for fires and explosions. Even the smallest smudges and particulates related to oils and greases, rust, scale, metal particles, hair, lint and other organic and inorganic matter can cause rapid combustion in an oxygen-rich environment.
Oxygen is a highly-reactive element and in oxygen enriched settings, oxygen can become a real concern since atmospheres that contain greater than 23% oxygen have a higher flammability range where fires will be much hotter and burn more quickly. A spark can turn into an inferno, unexpectedly, causing unspeakable tragedies.
Cleaning for Oxygen Should Be a Proactive Endeavor
Does your San Diego facility embrace a proactive or a reactive approach to cleaning for oxygen? A proactive approach avoids tragedies – it ensures contamination control is intentional and regularly scheduled.
