CIP System

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.
  • CIP started as a manual practice involving a balance tank, centrifugal pump, and connection to the system being cleaned.
  • 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 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.

Old vs New Practice Comparison

Manual Cleaning of Heat Exchanger is outdated technology…
USE CIP Instead and save on DOWN TIME, improve Productivity.

  1. OPENING of Heat Exchanger NOT Required
      • No Gasket Damage
      • No Spares Required
      • No Leakage Problem
      • No Manpower Require
      • Easy to Fit

2. Trolley Mounted System (Mobile)

3. Multiple Heat Exchangers can be cleaned

4. Less operating cost

5. Less cleaning times

6. Semi-Automatic and Fully Automatic

7. Manual System requires only One Operator

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.
