FLAME CLEANING

Impingement of an intensely hot flame to the surface of structural steel resulting in the removal of
mill scale and the dehydration of any remaining rust, leaving the surface in a condition suitable
for wire brushing followed by the immediate application of paint. This method has now fallen
into disuse. The procedure is defined in SSPC-SP 4, “Flame Cleaning of New Steel”, which has
been discontinued.
