CIP stations - equipment for the cleaning, rinsing, sanitizing and sterilization of all vessels and pipes

CIP STATIONS – cleaning and sanitation of the brewery equipment

CIP cleaning stationCIP – the cleaning-in-place machine (CIP station) for perfect cleaning and sanitizing inner surfaces of all vessels and piping in the brewery systems that come into contact with the media and food products. Without this device any beverage production line cannot be operated because the bacteria contamination risk.

Cleaning-in-place (CIP) is a method of cleaning the interior surfaces of pipes, beer production vessels, process equipment, filters and associated fittings, without disassembly.

We produce very practical equipment to cleaning and sanitation of the brewing, fermentation and storage vessels for beverages and pipeline routes and keeping them in a clean and sterile condition.

 

Description of the cleaning-sanitizing cycle


The cleaning-sanitizing cycle usually consists of these steps :

  1. Pre-rinsing  – rinsing of the production equipment using cold or hot water.
  2. Cleaning – cleaning of the production equipment using circulated hot water.
  3. Rinsing – thorough rinsing of the production equipment using cold or hot water.
  4. Chemical disinfection (sanitation) – washing of technology using alkaline and then acid sanitizing solution at the desired concentration.
  5. Rinsing – thorough rinsing of the production equipment using cold or hot water.
  6. Neutralization –  is performed after the finish of several cleaning and sanitizing cycles – mixing alkaline and then acidic sanitizing solution to achieve neutral pH of the solution and their discharge to the channel.

Why use our CIP station to cleaning and sanitizing of the brewery equipment ?

advantages of CIP use in the breweryAdvantages our CIP stations compared to the simple cleaning and sanitation technology with a pump:

  1. Less preparatory work: Sanitizing solutions are always prepared in the CIP containers and they are available in the desired dilution for several cleaning and sanitizing cycles. Their preparation before each cleaning and sanitizing cycle is not needed.
  2. Increasing work safety: Limiting the frequency of manipulation with sanitizing solutions reduces the likelihood of burns the operator when handling concentrated acids and alkalis.
  3. Saving of time and energy: Continuous heating of cleaning and sanitizing solution during the cleaning and sanitizing cycles and keeping them at a prescribed temperature increase considerably the efficiency of cleaning and sanitation, resulting in time saving operation of the equipment and saving of electricity consumption. All cleaning process, pump operations, heating of sanitizing solutions and water, they all take significantly less time, require less human work and electric energy.
  4. High efficiency of cleaning and sanitation: Compared with the cleaning and sanitizing of the food processing equipment by simple circulation pump there is still the same temperature of the sanitizing solutions during all time of the CIP cycle, if our CIP unit is used for this operation. Cleaning and sanitation with hot water and disinfectant solutions is definitely more effective than the same procedure with cold solutions, and therefore containers and equipment are perfectly clean after disinfection and washing cycles and are also free of organic and other impurities, which is desirable not only in the brewing industry but also in any other beverage or food production process. This is a prerequisite for compliance with legal hygiene requirements.
  5. Simple and efficient neutralization of acid and alkaline solutions after use: Neutralizing vessel (part of the CIP station) allows easy, safely and completely neutralize the used acid and alkaline sanitizing solution before pouring into the channel. It fully meets the requirements of laws to protect the environment and prevents damage to sewerage systems and other building components. Furthermore, this increases the safety when handling used washing and sanitization solution.

 


We offer the CIP stations for the cleaning-in-place process in two designes :

 

I. Mobile CIP stations – with tanks from 50 to 200 liters

CIP-53 mobile cleaning-in-place station with three tanks for sanitizing solutions and one neutralization tankCIP-52 mobile cleaning-in-place station with two tanks for sanitizing solutions and one neutralization tank

CIP 202 02 800x800 - CIP | cleaning-in-place machines | cleaning-sanitizing stationsCompact Mobile CIP Stations – They allow easy transport of sanitation and cleaning solutions in storage tanks closer to tanks and pipes to be cleaned and sanitized and their temporary connection to CIP machines with hoses. Mobile cleaning stations enable perfect cleaning and disinfection of all vessels and pipelines in the brewery, continuous heating of water and sanitation solutions, their precise dosing, circulation of disinfectant solutions by sanitized equipment. The neutralization tank allows the final neutralization of the used acidic and basic solutions before discharge into the channel. We produce mobile CIP stations in three tank volumes from 50 to 200 liters per tank.

The mobile CIP stations contain usualy these parts:

  • Tank with alkaline sanitizing solution – all types
  • Tank with acid sanitizing solution – only CIP stations with 2xT and 3xT architecture
  • Tank with hot water – only CIP stations with 3xT architecture
  • Neutralizing tank – for neutralization of both sanitizing solutions after their contamination before draining – all types
  • Heating chamber – for heating of water and sanitation solutions to required temperatures
  • Circulation pump – to pumping the sanitizing solutions through sanitized vessels and piping routes
  • Electric switch cabinet – box with all electric elements, regulators and power swittches
  • Control panel – indication of statuses and temperature and control all functions of the CIP station
  • Support stainless steel frame – with four or six traveling wheels and brakes

II. Static CIP stations – with tanks from 500 liters

Static CIP stations with volume of the tanks from 500 up to 1500 liters

cip static 01 - CIP | cleaning-in-place machines | cleaning-sanitizing stationsStatic CIP stations – they are fixed on one place in the brewery without a mobility. They are equipped with several high-capacity tanks (500 liters and more). These CIP stations serve to preparation, mixing, heating and collection of the sanitizing solutions and pumping of them to remote tanks and routes using long hoses and to sanitizing of all pipe routes dedicated for the sanitation process. They are equipped also with a temperature recovery hot water tank to storage of used hot water for more cleaning cycles.

Static CIP station usualy contains these parts:

  • Primary alkaline solution tank – alkaline cleaning-sanitation of the brewhouse
  • Secondary alkaline solution tank – alkaline cleaning-sanitation of other brewery equipment (tanks, filter, pipes …)
  • Acid solution tank – acid cleaning and sanitation of all brewery equipment
  • Water tank –  collecting and heating of water
  • Neutralizing vessel – for neutralization of both sanitizing solutions after their contamination before discharge
  • Heating chamber – for heating of water and sanitation solutions
  • Circulation pump – to pumping of the sanitizing solutions through vessels and piping routes
  • Control panel – control of all functions of the CIP station
  • Electric switch cabinet – box with all electric elements, regulators and power swittches
  • Set of hoses – for cleaning and sanitizing of remote devices
  • Support stainless steel frame – with adjustable legs
