Cleaning in Place
CIP or cleaning in place plants can be manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic. More often than not they will be operated through the use of a PLC or Programmable Logic Controller.
CIP plant components
CIP plants come with a feeding and recovery pump, a thermostat and manual or automatic valves.
The heating system can be electric, by steam with an alkaline solution or with an external exchanger.
Advantages of a custom CIP system
A CIP makes cleaning faster, less labour-intensive and more easily repeatable. It also poses lower risks of a chemical exposure during the cleaning process than if the procedure was performed by hand. Many industrial systems and machines in the beverage industry come with a built in CIP, but this is not always convenient. Our engineers know all about system maintenance and cleaning, and how a CIP solution can be built into your production line.
