WHAT IS CIP?
CIP is an abbreviation for “Clean in Place”, which is a cleaning method that involves cleaning equipment without moving it. CIP is a closed system in which a recirculating cleaning solution (often applied with nozzles) cleans, rinses, and sanitizes equipment. The CIP system is typically automatically controlled, and cleaning sequences are assigned the optimum timing for efficient cleaning of all plant parts.
WHAT IS CLEAN IN PLACE MEMBRANE?
Clean in Place (CIP) according to the membrane manufacturer's recommendations, using normalization formulas, determines the best time and conditions for scheduling a CIP. Waiting a long time can result in irreversible membrane damage.
WHAT IS CLEAN IN PLACE STORAGE?
Clean-in-place (CIP) systems are gaining popularity in the food manufacturing industry. The system's design helps in cleaning the interior surfaces of a storage tank and the lines leading out of it more effective and efficient without requiring the user to enter the tank.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES CLEAN IN PLACE UNIT TAKES?
Even though CIP technology provides numerous benefits to liquid processing companies, many existing and older CIP systems are extremely resource-intensive, wasting large amounts of water, energy, and cleaning chemicals.At the very same time, while CIP typically does not involve lengthy dismantling and cleaning tasks, it can still cause significant downtime.Production is halted while the CIP process is carried out. In general, a CIP cycle takes between 60 and 90 minutes. This can be very expensive for manufacturers, especially if the CIP process is repeated several times across the day.
CLEAN IN PLACE RECOVERY UNIT
As reducing our overall impact on the environment becomes more significant, industry is now under increasing pressure to reduce the amount of process wastewater discharged to sewers. However, handling larger volumes of this wastewater can be costly.
The majority of industries have already lowered their water consumption to the bare minimum. Despite the use of efficient clean-in-place (CIP) systems and the ability to recycle detergents multiple times, large volumes of caustic wastewater are frequently generated.Cleaning solutions, which primarily consist of a 2–4 percent sodium hydroxide solution, become clogged with impurities such as proteins, sugars, after repeated use and must be replaced. These solutions, however, can be cleaned and regenerated for continued use using a GEA nanofiltration (NF) plant, saving money and avoiding disposal issues.The recovery of these CIP solutions is accomplished through membrane filtration at the fluid's normal operating temperature (up to 70 °C). The polluted CIP solution is routed through a bypass system into the main storage tank, ultrafiltered (UF). This removes colloidal impurities that are suspended in the water. CIP solutions are usually considered directly in a nanofiltration (NF) system to eliminate color and low-molecular-weight impurities. The contaminants in the retentate are concentrated, allowing the purified caustic solution permeate to pass through at the same concentration and temperature as the feed.
ADVANTAGES OF CIP CYCLE
- REDUCTION IN CHEMICAL LOSS: It reduced chemical loss saves money and extends application intervals.
- LOWER COSTS: It lowers the cost of wastewater neutralization.
- LOWER ENERGY COSTS: It reduces energy costs as a result of high-temperature filtration.
- PLUG AND PLAY DESIGN: It designed in plug-and-play for simple integration into existing CIP systems.
- INCREASE IN RETURN OF INVESTMENT: Standardized modular design to reduce investment costs and increase return on investment
