CIP stands for “Cleaning in Place” – internal cleaning of complete facilities or pipelines, without disassembling or opening up the equipment and with minimal manual handling required of the operator.
Any surfaces that are exposed to the product are cleaned by circulating a cleaning solution through the facility at high flow velocity. A correctly designed pipeline layout is crucial to successful implementation of a CIP system and you must avoid ‘dead ends’ and place CIP nozzles and CIP turbines correctly.
When you need to install CIP facilities, you should ask yourself what your needs are:
- New or refurbished?
- Centralised or decentralised placement?
- When should cleaning take place?
- How many steps should the disinfection process involve?
- Type and number of objects – which of them need cleaning?
