Trich Cleaning Phoenix
It happens more often than it should – fires and explosions due to accumulated contaminants in oxygen-supply systems which act as fuel in oxygen-rich environments. As the oxygen concentration in air increases, so does the potential for fire and combustion acceleration. Oxygen gives no warning as a colorless, odorless gas and, as such, does not alert those in close proximity of any existing oxygen enrichment.
The fire triangle consists of 1) combustible materials such as lint, skin, solvents, greases, sand, etc which become embedded in oxygen-system components 2) oxygen as an oxidizer and 3) an ignition source which could be something as simple as friction or vibrations. One of the well-recognized causes of oxygen fires is poor maintenance of oxygen systems – enter Morgan Aero.
We specialize in a whole host of cleaning-for-oxygen methodologies with trich cleaning being one of them. We, also, test oxygen equipment. Leaking hoses, for example, can be, particularly, hazardous in areas where there is insufficient ventilation, thereby, contributing to oxygen concentrations to become enhanced and, potentially, very dangerous.
Oxygen, as an oxidizing agent, becomes an asset when it is used to help support combustion in a plethora of manufacturing applications. Then again, it can react, robustly, with the types of above-mentioned contaminants and others and help generate catastrophic consequences of uncontrolled combustion. Uncontrolled combustion can, quickly, morph into an inferno. Once ignited, even small gaskets, O-rings, or other nonmetal materials within oxygen systems can form part of a ‘kindling chain’ reaction, causing surrounding materials to ignite, also.
