This course is oriented specifically for industrial oxygen pipeline systems. It provides an introduction to the oxygen hazard from the perspective of "Why clean for oxygen service?" It then provides practical "how-to's" regarding our oxygen clean methodology: start clean, verify clean, assemble clean, and maintain clean. We teach white light and black light visual inspection techniques along with the most widely used acceptance criteria from CGA G-4.1 and EIGA IGC 33-06.
This is an on-site, live instruction course. The 2 contact hours will earn .2 CEUs, 2 PDHs for participants. It can be presented several times within any given day to accomodate work schedules and shifts. It can also be packaged with the O2 Practice - Safe Practices
training to provide a comprehensive 6 hour course that addresses both topics.
With the course we provide the option of an Oxygen Clean Verification Kit
equipped with demonstation materials like pre-contaminated samples with known levels of oils/greases and particulates to calibrate inspectors, visual inspection acceptance criteria reference tools, as well as equipment for white and black light inspection and wipe testing.
This course is taught on demand.

Goals & Outcomes
The learning goal of this course is to identify the hazards of contaminants in oxygen systems and apply industry best practices related to visual inspection.
The student will identify the oxygen hazard, with an emphasis on specific hazards related to contaminants. Students will practice using visual inspection tools, including white light, black (UV) light, and wipe tests to detect contaminants in oxygen piping, components, and equipment.
