Cleaning in Place

A good definition of Cleaning in Place (CIP) is given in the 1990 edition of the Society of Dairy Technology manual. “The cleaning of complete items of plant or pipeline without dismantling or opening of the equipment, and with little or no manual involvement on the part of the operator. The process involves jetting or spraying of surfaces or circulation of cleaning solutions through the plant under conditions of increased turbulence and flow velocity.”

The principles of cleaning are always the same with chemical, thermal and physical energies combining to remove soil from surfaces. With CIP, the movement of the fluid provides the physical energy by turbulence, in both pipework and vessel cleaning.

Making sure that a processing plant operates efficiently requires the maximum utilisation of the plant at the lowest cost. Holchem’s years of experience in CIP help us to deliver real benefits and savings for our customers through management systems, training and optimisation plans, which provide a methodology for the business to achieve the best cost of clean possible whilst minimising factory down time.
