CIP (Cleaning In Place) and SIP (Sterilisation In Place) systems are ideal in industries where hygiene is of the utmost importance and contamination must be avoided at all costs. Without dismantling any equipment, tanks, pipes and entire process lines can be efficiently cleaned, 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 – be it 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.



Particularly in the food processing industry, the risk of bacteria contamination is high.


All Grundfos pumps are offered with a surface roughness down to 0.3 μm, ensuring that nothing sticks to the inside.


Cleaning processes may require the use of aggressive chemicals.


The Grundfos range of stainless steel pumps efficiently withstands even very aggressive chemicals, prolonging the life of the pumps.


Precise dosing of chemicals is important in order to optimise costs.


Grundfos digital dosing pumps are available for highly accurate dosing of all chemicals.


Energy consumption is important to your customer.


Grundfos high-efficiency E-solutions significantly reduce energy consumption by automatically adjusting pump performance to the actual need. Naturally, the E-solutions meet international efficiency standards.


Stock management can be made difficult due to the global differences in voltages and frequencies.


Grundfos E-solutions feature dual frequency and a wide voltage range, allowing you to use the same solution all over the world. Naturally, the E-solutions carry the necessary approvals.
