CIP/SIP systems ensure completely clean production equipment
TextCIP (Cleaning In Place) and SIP (Sterilisation In Place) applications ensure your production output and working environment continue to meet the relevant health regulations for hygiene and cleanliness. For CIP systems, Grundfos single-stage and multi-stage end-suction pumps are capable of handling temperatures as high as 180 °C and are made of stainless steel to withstand the aggressive detergents encountered in cleaning processes. As the CIP system is never in contact with the actual process – whether food or pharmaceuticals – sanitary pumps are not required. CIP pumps are, however, usually electro-polished to make sure that no residues stick to the inside. Precise dosing pumps can further speed-up the CIP process by adding only as much detergent as necessary, thus minimising the time taken to flush the system.
