Cleaning for Oxygen Service Jacksonville
It can’t be argued that oxygen is a fire hazard since it promotes combustion. Incidences of fires in the air are documented and are not so uncommon – a fact most would find interesting since air is composed of only about 20% oxygen. Increasing oxygen percentages poses enhanced fire hazards, and a number of materials that may not be combustible will burn in an oxygen-enriched atmosphere.
Jacksonville production facilities – from medical and pharmaceutical to automotive, marine, aviation, and metal processing – use oxygen in one form or another, whether high-pressure oxygen, industrial oxygen, or oxygen in liquid form. Valves, regulators, piping, fittings and other components are conduits for oxygen delivery systems and become embedded with contaminants. If these contaminant-embedded components are not properly cleaned, the risk for fires and explosions becomes the perfect storm.
At Morgan Aero, our cleaning for oxygen service is the assurance Jacksonville enterprises lean on for their risk management that deals with the minimizing of fire hazards in oxygen-handling systems. We provide an overarching cleaning for oxygen service, and our clean-room procedures ensure the meticulous control of airborne particulates during our cleaning, drying, and packaging stages.
When organic and inorganic particles come in contact with oxygen and are not thoroughly removed from a system’s components, the risk of combustion and ignition hazards becomes high. Contaminants such as lint, weld slag, acids, skin particles, hydrocarbon-based greases, and a plethora of other impurities must be attentively extracted, especially considering auto-ignition can occur with some combustible metals and hydrocarbons.
