The best choice for cleaning storage tanks and transfer pipes is a CIP installation. These can be manually-operated or work fully automatically. The CIP installation controls the whole cleaning cycle, with for each phase the water and chemical consumption being controlled and variably adjusted. On the CIP return line there is also a conductivity meter, a flow switch and a temperature gauge to check that CIP has taken place as appropriate.
- Repeatability of cleaning
- Hygienic design
- Takes account of adequate separation between CIP and product in the Spiromatic installations
- Suffices with regard to certain standards (BRC, IFS, etc.)
