MIL-STD-1622B is the military standard for cleaning Shipboard Compressed Air Systems, as specified by the US Navy. It ensures that products are compliant with the highest specifications, and provides the basic requirements for the cleaning of all compressed air-systems and components. Some specific systems include diver’s life-support air, the air supplying oxygen-generating equipment, air for emergency breathing, emergency main-ballast tank blow, low-pressure vital as well as non-vital air, electronics air, and deballast air.
Air systems supplying diver life support are classified as critical applications by the US Navy, because of the “increased toxicity hazard associated with high partial pressure environments for diver air, and flammability due to the interface with the oxygen system for air systems supplying oxygen-generating equipment."
It is vastly important that products in the above categories follow the
MIL-STD-1622B specifications, because of the immense risks involved. Every single step in the process is defined in the MIL-STD-1622B, from the purity grades of water, to the solvents and cleaners allowed, the inspection requirements, and the physical materials used. Ignoring MIL-STD-1622B standards puts lives at critical risk. Punishments for standard violations include citations, fines, loss of licenses or worse, depending on the severity of the violations.
What is MIL-STD-1330D?
MIL-STD-1330D refers to the military standard for Cleaning as well as Testing of Ship-board Helium, Oxygen, Helium-Oxygen, Hydrogen Systems and Nitrogen. It provides all basic requirements for precision-cleaning as well as oxygen testing and testing of oxygen-enriched components and systems; oxygen-generating plants such as hydrogen, nitrogen and de-mineralized water components and support systems; and helium-oxygen,helium as well as hydrogen-life components and support systems.
Like the MIL-STD-1622B, adherence to the standards of the MIL-STD-1330D is of critical importance. The military defines and specifies every process involved, including facility requirements, air filtration, materials and equipment, system preparation, pressure testing, and many other procedures involved.
Absence of conformance can result in the introduction or failure to remove toxic and flammable contaminants that can cause catastrophic equipment failure and personnel injury and death.
