CIP : CLEAN IN PLACE

What is CIP System ?

      CIP System: Cleaning in Place or On-line Cleaning System is know for cleaning of product contact surface of vessel, heat exchanger, piping equipment without dismantling from line. The advent of CIP was a boon to industries that needed frequent internal cleaning of their processes. Industries that rely heavily on CIP are those requiring high levels of choking issues The benefits to industries by using CIP is that the cleaning is faster, less labor-intensive and more repeatable, and poses less of a chemical exposure risk.

      CIP started as a manual practice involving a balance tank, centrifugal pump, and connection to the system being cleaned. CIP has evolved to include fully automated systems with programmable logic controllers, multiple balance tanks, sensors, valves, heat exchangers, data acquisition and specially designed spray nozzle systems. Simple, manually operated CIP systems can still be found in use today.

Design Principal of CIP System ?

      Depending on soil load and process geometry, the CIP design principle is one of the following: Deliver highly turbulent, high flow-rate solution to effect good cleaning (applies to pipe circuits and filled equipment). Deliver solution as a low-energy spray to fully wet the surface (applies to lightly soiled vessels where a static spray ball may be used). Deliver 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.

CIP

Why CIP ?

      A problem frequently encountered in almost all applications is the build-up of deposits on heat transfer surfaces. By using wide range of cleaning agents suitable for removing most of these troublesome deposits and restoring performance to optimal levels. The time-consuming work of opening heat exchangers can thus often be avoided by using an Cleaning in Place (CIP) unit. CIP units can be used for all types of heat exchangers, including spiral heat exchangers, shell-and-tube heat exchangers and gasketed, welded and brazed plate heat exchangers.

What is CIP Cleaning?

      CIP cleaning, referred as Clean-In-Place System, is a procedure of cleaning interior product contact surfaces such as process pipes, vessels and equipment, without dismantling. In contrast, Cleaning-Out-of-Place (COP) is a method used when parts cannot be cleaned-in-place and must be dismantling from the process. Whether CIP cleaning or cleaning-out-of-place, to achieve a sanitary clean, the basic cleaning principles of TACT—Time, Action, Chemical and Temperature Must be understood. TACT Time Action Chemical Temperature

CIP Cleaning With TACT Principles in Mind?

      Once the product and process parts to be cleaned are clearly defined, Time, Action, Chemicals and Temperature needed to provide a complete clean can be determined. If we take example of dairy for a instance, Cleaning a dairy process such as a cold ice cream line may require more time to get the solution to the right temperature. It is also required to run several chemicals in a cycle such as a caustic wash to remove dairy proteins and fats, an acid wash to remove the milk stone, and a sanitizer because dairy is so conducive to bacterial growth.

Where to Start When Considering CIP Cleaning?

      Liquid-soluble product is certainly easier to clean, but even with liquids you have variations. Juices and carbonated drinks, few juices have solids in them, so that’s tougher to clean than a carbonated drink. Dairy product lines, it’s important to keep in mind the possibility for bacterial growth versus a carbonated beverage which has lower pH and higher acidity decreasing the chance for contamination. Distilleries, choking is mainly highly viscous molasses, grain spent and cooling tower water quality which has high TDS, For solids, CIP system design will vary depending upon the soil’s shape, size, load, and surface adherence of the particles. These all will impact what on designing an appropriate CIP system

CIP

Other CIP Design Features to Contemplate?

      Some systems may require multiple tanks to improve sustainability Single-tank, two-tank, multi-tank and multi-circuit designs are all options when building a CIP cleaning system. Other processes can increase production capacity with a multi-circuit system, essentially giving customers the ability to clean multiple processes and products at the same time. When operating a single-tank system, you have to wait for that one tank to fill and drain for each step in a cycle. Adding a second tank dedicated to chemical allows for reuse of that chemical, and a third tank allows for a rinse recovery step to capture rinse water from a previous cycle to be reused in the next cycle’s pre-rinse step.

CIP

Return on investment?

      Determining the right investment in an appropriate CIP system also greatly depends upon budget. More tanks designed into a system means more upfront capital cost, but it also increases production capacity. ROI on a CIP system often takes just one or two years. Some of our customers have production hours that run into tens of thousands of rupees. Saving them 15 minutes of cleaning time each week can create tremendous positive results.

CIP

ADVANTAGES OF A CIP SYSTEM?

      Minimizes Mistakes: Automating cleaning reduces the chance of human error that can contribute to an unsafe product. Keeps Employees Safe: Reduces chemical exposure by containing cleaning solutions within the system. More Production Time: As less production time is lost to cleaning, more time is spent making product. Product Quality: Reliable and repeatable cleaning means sustainable product quality and consistency. Less contamination means fewer product recalls and higher brand confidence. Utility Savings: Water and energy usage is reduced through repeatable cycle control.

MINI CIP System

     Mini CIP is a mobile, cost-effective clean-in-place (CIP) system designed to serve the needs of processors in all the industry types, without compromising functionality or quality. The CIP product line was originally conceived for customers new to CIP and for those with smaller budgets, Compact CIP has large caster wheels and a small footprint, allowing it to be moved easily. Compact CIP is also a solution for well-established plants that want to expand their CIP capabilities, but do not want to commit to a hard-piped, centralized CIP system. Plants concerned with allergen crossover can dedicate individual Compact CIP skids to different areas of the plant, mitigating any potential for contamination.

CIP

     Mobile or Trolley CIP skid systems can be especially useful in a distributed CIP system. All of the equipment needed to clean-in-place is mounted on a compact, self-contained skid that can be easily transported to any location in the plant. The mobility of these systems gives users considerable flexibility in their cleaning operations.

CIP

     STANDARD DESIGN After over a year in development, Compact CIP was released as the most cost-effective CIP solution on the market. This system is built to the same level of hygienic design required for food and beverage industries. The instruments are robust and accurate, ensuring dependable measurements of temperature, flow, conductivity, and pressure. Flow is controlled via a VFD (Variable Frequency Drive) supplying power to the centrifugal pump.
