FAQ

  • How do we degrease your products?

    Show Answer

    We use a water-based environmentally friendly process that contains surfactants for degreasing pipe. Rinsing is done with pure filtered water under high pressure. We shoot each tube with cleaning plugs and drying is done using pure nitrogen from a gas cylinder. For smaller components, we use ultrasound. Rinsing is done with deionized water and alcohol. Drying takes place by means of bottled nitrogen. After drying we plug each tube and protective package the goods for shipment to our customers.

  • Why is it necessary that I degrease tubes and fittings?

    Show Answer

    It is essential that the pipes and fittings are kept free of oil and fat particles since these substances are easily ignited in contact with e.g. oxygen.

  • What are the materials that we normally degrease?

    Show Answer

    We degrease most types of pipe and fittings for primarily, medical gas pipeline systems in hospitals and for demanding industrial applications. Mostly the material is of copper and stainless steel but we also process steel pipe and steel tube parts.

  • What testing method do we use?

    Show Answer

    We regularly test our degreasing process by sending samples of our production to a certified, third party, testing laboratory - An established method of analysis has been modified and no prohibited, hazardous, chemicals may be used anymore. Hydrocarbon content is determined by infrared spectrophotometry (IR). The method is similar to the earlier standard SS 02 81 45, where the interior of a degreased pipe is rinsed with a solution agent. The internal surface of the tube is determined and the amount of hydrocarbon in mg/m² calculated. Testing and control procedures are strictly regulated in Amon’s QMS ISO 13485-2012
