Clean-in-place (CIP) is a method of cleaning the interior surfaces of pipes, vessels, process equipment, filters and associated fittings, without disassembly. Quality in CIP is essential in dairy, food & beverage industry. Efficiency is the key, both in terms of cleaning result and economy. CIP economy is dictated by cost and time. Reducing waste is critical; correctly configured and efficient cleaning, pumping and heating equipment is needed to get the cleaning fluid properly out to work on the surfaces.
Depending on soil load and process geometry, the CIP design principle is one of the following:
- Delivers highly turbulent, high flow-rate solution to effect good cleaning (applies to pipe circuits and some filled equipment)
- Delivers solution as a low-energy spray to fully wet the surface (applies to lightly soiled vessels where a static sprayball may be used)
- Delivers a high energy impinging spray (applies to highly soiled or large diameter vessels where a dynamic spray device may be used)
- Elevated temperature and chemical detergents are often employed to enhance cleaning effectiveness
Dairy Automation Technologies offers the fully computerized CIP system on a turnkey basis which includes design, supply, installation and commissioning. This also includes supply of tanks, valves, pipeline assemblies, instrumentation, control panels and digital HMI. The entire system is offered as skid-mounted units along with total integration of your existing plant to facilitate very effective cleaning.
Single tank CIP pressure line
Dairy Automation Technologies designs are simple and low cost units which are specially suitable for plants with low budgetary requirements and simple technical operations. It’s simple and skid-mounting feature offers a space-saving option with the facility of portability.
Multiple tanks CIP pressure lines
Multiple tanks cleaning solution fulfills all requirements of heavy load of CIP operations through a four circuit system making it easy for the CIP’s of four different destinations to be performed simultaneously. It’s significant features include speed, accuracy, cost-effective, chemical-recovery, operational ease, upgradable, energy efficiency.
