Alfa Laval Centrifugal CIP Clean In Place pump system
Clean-in-Place (CIP) is a method of cleaning the interior surfaces of pipes, vessels, process equipment,filters and associated fittings, without disassembly.
In the past, closed systems were disassembled and cleaned manually. 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 hygiene, and include:dairy, beverage, brewing, processed food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics/
The benefit to industries that use CIP is that the cleaning is faster, less labor intensive and more repeatable, and poses less of a chemical exposure risk to people.
Cleaning-in-Place pays for itself
When fouling occurs, an Alfa Laval CIP system enables quick and easy in-line cleaning of heat exchangers and high-speed separators without dismantling your equipment. In addition, Alfa Laval can engineer a custom CIP solution to meet your specific requirements, such as a very large heat exchanger installation or hazardous areas that require explosion-proof equipment.
Reduced operating costs
By eliminating the repeated and unnecessary opening of your equipment, you drastically reduce both spare parts consumption and the number of man-hours required for cleaning.
Quick, effective cleaning
Alfa Laval CIP systems connect directly to your heat exchanger or separator connections and circulate a mixture of heated non-toxic cleaning agents that effectively remove scale, product deposits and bio-fouling. This leaves process surfaces clean and restores the performance of your equipment.
