Degreasing is the process of removing excess residual oils and other contaminants from pipes, which is a key aspect of the HPI pipework installation procedure. Oil and grease are particularly hazardous in the presence of oxygen as they can ignite spontaneously and burn with explosive violence.
PEACE OF MIND
At HPI, all of our copper installations are completed with certificated degreased pipework and fittings to BS EN 13348. Our ISO 9001:2008 accreditation demands that we have traceability on all our pipe and fittings, and we adhere to this rigidly for the client’s peace of mind.
