C.I.P. Module


CIP module

Factors affecting the effectiveness of the cleaning:

  • Temperature of the cleaning solution.
  • Concentration of the cleaning agent.
  • Contact time of the cleaning solution.
  • Pressure exerted by the cleaning solution (or turbulence).

Dion engineering offers C.I.P. modules for egg processing equipment.

What is C.I.P.:

Clean in place (CIP) is a method of cleaning the interior surfaces of pipes, vessels, process equipment, filters and associated fittings, without disassembly.

Application:

This C.I.P. module for pasteurizing system is suitable for automatic cleaning of reception vessel, screw pump, automatic filter, filling machine, holding tube, pipes, valves, PHE, RSH and etc.

Advantages:

The Clean in place (CIP) is faster, less labor-intensive and more repeatable, and poses less of a chemical exposure risk.

The whole C.I.P. module is controlled by computer devices.

Typical C.I.P. cycles:

  • Pre-rinse with water, which is performed to wet the interior surface of the tank and remove residue.
  • Caustic solution single pass flush through the vessel to drain. Caustic is the main cleaning solution.
  • Caustic solution re-circulation through the vessel.
  • Intermediate rinse with water.
  • Acid solution wash – used to remove mineral precipitates and protein residues.
  • Final rinse with water – rinses to flush out residual cleaning agents.
