This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides recommended practices for cleaning aircraft oxygen equipment such as tubing, pieces, parts (including regulator and valve parts), cylinders and ground-based equipment that may be used to support aircraft oxygen systems. This revision introduces a cleanliness coding scheme that can be referenced as a requirement, and/or referenced to identify compliance to meeting such a requirement. These methods may apply to gaseous and liquid oxygen equipment. This document specifies work area details, methods to select suitable cleaning agents, cleaning methods, test methods to verify cleanliness level, and methods of packaging the components and parts after cleaning. Technicians designated to clean oxygen equipment must be qualified and trained to clean oxygen equipment. This ARP is applicable to metallic and non-metallic parts.
This document has been revised to reflect current industry recommended practices regarding component and oxygen system cleaning and to establish a cleanliness coding scheme and marking requirement stating the cleanliness level of oxygen cleaned parts or components contained within the sealed package. The SAE A-10 committee has removed the packaging practices from ARP1176 and created AIR5742, which provides information regarding recommended practices for packaging and transit of aircraft oxygen equipment.

Welcome to the SAE A-10 Aircraft Oxygen Equipment Committee public forum area.The SAE A-10 Aircraft Oxygen Equipment Committee develops standards and practices in the design and information compiled from users, equipment suppliers, aircraft manufacturers, regulatory agencies and medical groups in the aeronautical oxygen field. The A-10 Committee also promotes safety in the aviation oxygen field. It defines the needs and encourages research needed in the area of aviation physiology, as it relates to respiratory functions and oxygen equipment performance.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
