    STP 1181 describes methods to clean and verify the level of cleanliness using environmentally acceptable agents. 13 peer-reviewed papers present:

    • alternative cleaning and verification procedures

    • information of mutual benefit to the producers, customers, and manufacturers

    • a database for the revision of cleaning and verification of systems and components, and

    • a guide for future efforts in the problems of cleaning and verification of systems and components used by the aerospace and oxygen communities.
