Also of great interest is MOMENTUM SERVICES’ uncommon ability to adapt to a variety of shapes and sizes from small to large and from standard shapes to unusual configurations. This includes everything from valves, piping, tubing, fittings and other industrial equipment,” said Sam Furman, VP of Operations. Furman continues, “Our service technicians will prepare, clean and verify each component according to strict customer specifications and relevant industry standards. After each item is thoroughly cleaned, they will be bagged, labeled and fully documented.” The ability to clean components without having to ship them across country will have a great impact on the delivery schedules of customers within the greater Houston area. Local cleaning will shorten their shipments by a significant margin.

MOMENTUM SERVICES’ cleanrooms are ISO Class 7 (Class 10,000) certified and are focused 100% to precision cleaning. For example, cleaning equipment for oxygen service is an important step prior to installing into a serious application. Having impurities in an oxygen-enriched system, especially hydrocarbons, can cause unacceptable product purity issues or present a dangerous combustion hazard. It is critical to properly clean components for oxygen systems to eliminate the potential for such issues.

“We are excited to embark on this new endeavor using our 39 years of industrial experience as a basis for proven performance and customer satisfaction. We have a profound knowledge of the severe service market and the stringent requirements necessary for these type of critical applications,” reports Matt Mogas, CEO and President.
