Cleaning and degreasing of medical gas pipes and fittings is an important procedure to ensure that the medical gas system functions properly and that patient safety is not compromised. Here are some reasons why degreasing is necessary. Read more

We use a water-based environmentally friendly process that contains surfactants to degrease pipes. Rinsing takes place with clean filtered water under high pressure. We shoot each tube with a cleaning plug and dry with pure nitrogen from a gas cylinder. For smaller components, we use ultrasound. Rinsing takes place with deionized ultra clean water and alcohol. Drying takes place with oil free air from a compressor and with the help of nitrogen from a gas cylinder. After drying, each pipe is plugged with end caps and protectively packaged for transport to the customer.

Yes, all deliveries to the worksite include a copy of our degreasing certificate with a unique LPDS (Logical process Documentation System) number together with all relevant manufacturing information and contact details.

  • purchase order number
  • material
  • batch or batch number
  • quantity
  • applicable standard

Original certificates are sent together with the invoice in separate mail to the customer.

We degrease most types of pipes and pipe parts for, primarily, medicinal, and demanding/sensitive industrial purposes. Mainly it is material of copper and all kinds of stainless-steel.

We are well known in the industry for fast and safe deliveries. In most cases, we can get the goods out of the factory after one or a couple of working days.

Yes absolutely! Apart from SAMedical® copper tubes and SAMedical® End-feed capillary fittings for medical gases, which require a special material quality and we stock these ourselves. We are happy to accept and wash nearly all other components with only a few exceptions. There are a few products that we tend to avoid such as parts that have come in contact with, e.g., silicon. If you are unsure just give us a call and we can give you a clear answer as to yes or no.

We have most of the larger wholesalers in the Nordics as customers. Also, manufacturers of large and small process valves and the like, who regularly send us their own products for cleaning and degreasing.

Our prices for SAMedical® copper tubing and fittings can be found on our website. In order to access our prices, you must log in. If you are missing login details, you can receive them by sending us an e-mail, from the "Contact" tab. Our copper pipe prices are updated once a month according to the LME (London Metal Exchange). Prices for degreased stainless-steel pipes and for the "washing of customer's goods" can also be downloaded. If in doubt… just give us a call.

SAMedical® is Amon's registered trademark for Amon´s degreased and cleaned pipes and pipeline fittings in copper or stainless-steel which, according to the MDR, are classed IIa. These products are produced for the safe transportation of pharmaceutical-classed medicinal gases in healthcare facilities and for other demanding industrial applications.

We regularly test our degreasing process by sending samples of our production to a certified, third party, testing laboratory - An established method of analysis has been modified and no prohibited, hazardous, chemicals may be used anymore. Hydrocarbon content is determined by infrared spectrophotometry (IR). The method is similar to the earlier standard SS 02 81 45, where the interior of a degreased pipe is rinsed with a solution agent. The internal surface of the tube is determined and the amount of hydrocarbon in mg/m² calculated. Testing and control procedures are strictly regulated in Amon’s QMS ISO 13485-2012

SS EN ISO 7396 is the Swedish adoption (Swedish Standard) of the globally approved standard ISO 7396-1 Medical gas pipeline systems — Part 1: Pipeline systems for compressed medical gases and vacuum. The Swedish standard has been approved by SIS (Swedish Standards Institute) and bears the designation SS EN ISO 7396. ISO 7396-1 is an international standard that specifies the requirements for medical gas supply systems in hospitals and other healthcare facilities. The standard focuses on ensuring a reliable and safe supply of medical gases, including oxygen, nitrogen, nitrous oxide, and other specialty gases, to patients and medical personnel. Read more

SIS HB 370 is a handbook published by the Swedish Standards Institute (SIS) with the title "Safety standards for medical gas facilities". The handbook contains guidelines and standards for the safe handling and installation of medical gas pipeline systems within the health care sector in Sweden. In the soon to be published new edition of SIS HB 370, under the leadership of SIS, it will contain a translation into Swedish of EN-ISO 7396-1 and clarify the difference to "Swedish practice" and additional requirements in addition to those set in EN-ISO 7396-1. In the present version of SIS HB 370 there is no direct translation of ISO 7396-1 within the handbook.Read more

MDD stands for "Medical Devices Directive", which is an EU directive that regulates medical devices within the European Union, and which was initially planned by the EU to only be valid until the 26th of May 2021, when the MDR (Medical Devices Regulation) was supposed to enter into full force. Due to delays, the transition period of MDD to MDR has been extended by the EU, to the 31st of December 2028.

The MDD establishes rules and requirements to ensure the quality, safety and performance of medical devices sold within the European market. The MDD was and is the regulatory framework used by operators and manufacturers of healthcare facilities, until it is permanently replaced by the EU with the full implementation of the MDR.

"MDR" stands for Medical Device Regulation. It is a regulatory framework implemented by the European Union (EU) to ensure the safety, quality and effectiveness of medical devices placed on the market within the EU. The MDR was officially adopted by the EU in April 2017 and the transition period for implementation was scheduled to be completed by the 26th of May 26, 2021. However, due to delays, the transition period has been extended to the 31st of December 2028. The MDR is mandatory for medical device manufacturers selling products within the EU. Read more
