Care must be taken in the selection of equipment and materials, which need to be oxygen compatible and free from contaminants. The main contaminates to be avoided and/or eliminated are hydrocarbon oils and greases, which are easily combustible and particulate matter, which can easily ignite or cause ignition.
Selection of the appropriate method of cleaning shall be determined by the final level of cleanliness required.
