CIP (Cleaning In Place) and SIP (Sterilisation In Place) systems are ideal in industries where contamination must be avoided at all costs. Tanks, pipes and entire process lines are efficiently cleaned without dismantling any equipment, saving time and in turn money.

Grundfos CIP pumps, handling temperatures all the way up to 180°C, are made of stainless steel to be able 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 the necessary detergent, consequently reducing the flushing of the system.

As for the slightly more demanding SIP process, Grundfos multistage pumps are used to feed the boiler producing the steam that efficiently cleans for example bottles at very high temperatures.
