There were visible amounts of black “grime” on the upper end of the displacers and piston; the Vanderbilt Macromizer cold head was dirtier than the J-H unit. 6. Cleaned the 1 st stage region of the sleeve interior by hand with Kimwipes and isopropanol. A considerable amount of black residue was removed, which Steve said is probably oil from the flex line connections or from the cold head motor. 7. Cleaned the 2 nd stage sleeve interior with Kimwipes and isopropanol but using a copper rod bound with rubber bands at the end to “plunge” the confined space. 8.
