    Abstract

    Over the past several years a number of briefings have been given at the Oxygen Standardization Coordinating Group (OSCG) concerning cleaning methods and procedures for military oxygen equipment. Of particular concern has been the diversity of methods, cleaning compounds, and cleanliness criteria that exist in the military and industry in the manufacture, shipment, aircraft installation, and maintenance of military oxygen equipment. This will be discussed in some depth in this paper. The OSCG is an Army, Navy, and Air Force group that meets twice a year to discuss and coordinate changes to specification governing procurement of military oxygen equipment and related design and installation practices. Industry is also invited to attend and comment.
