Oxygen Service Cleaning with Vertrel®

DuPont™ Vertrel® specialty fluids are used to clean oxygen service parts.

DuPont™ Vertrel® specialty fluids are used to clean oxygen service parts. Cleaning oxygen service parts is more critical than most other cleaning applications because particles left as residue may hinder operation of valves, sensors, or controls, and could cause excessive friction that may lead to potential ignition or explosion.

  • Nonflammable
  • Fast drying, and easy removal from heat exchangers
  • Approved by major gas producers and aerospace manufacturers
  • Listed by ASTM and CGA (ASTM G93; CGA Directory of Cleaning Agents for Oxygen Service)
  • Passed LOX Impact test (NF EN 1997; NHB 8060.1)
  • Faster and easier to use than aqueous cleaners
  • Compatible with commonly used metallic and nonmetallic materials
