Use alcohol for disinfection. Low-concentration alcohol or disinfectant water can kill most bacteria, so spray disinfectant water to protect the air environment. However, alcohol is flammable and explosive, so the concentration and dosage must be controlled.

Wipe with cotton cloth. This is the most traditional and practical way of cleaning. In this way, every part of the pipeline can be cleaned meticulously. But sometimes when the transported fluid is ultra-low temperature, do not touch the pipeline to avoid frostbite.
