When organic materials, such as oil and grease, get in contact with oxygen they will combust spontaneously. Even sand or scaling from welding present in a pipeline and then tearing off in collision with an elbow or any part of installation, can be sufficient to start a fire. Once ignited even steel will burn…
All process equipment which is in contact with oxygen has to be prepared for this hazard. The preparation mostly is cleaning the equipment to remove all materials which can start combustion, such as all organic APC (Airborne Particles Concentration) and NVR (Non Volatile Residue) which can introduce energy level causing the ignition. Ventil delivers „clean” test benches or even complete clean assembly and test equipment, adapted to your valve type, size and application.
