Cleaning in Place (CIP) is a very common practice in many dairy, processed food, beverage, and brewery plants replacing manual strip down, cleaning and rebuilding of process systems. But there are some challenges you have to be prepared for. For meeting them, ifm offers a wide range of products which are resistant to CIP cleaning.
In the simplest application, CIP solutions will be used once and then discarded to drain. However, this way implicates high costs of water, effluent and cleaning chemicals. It is more usual to recover cleaning solutions in a recovery tank and restore the original concentration of the cleaning fluid, and then to reuse the recovered solution. This is why ifm has developed solutions for concentration measurements – get to know them!
There can be a few reasons why your product is contaminated with a foreign liquid. Not sufficiently flushing out the equipment is one of them, another reason could be found in your valves. Therefore, our experts will talk about smart valve monitoring as well.
The next point to which we attach great importance is pump condition monitoring: We want you to receive an alarm that your pump is going to fail before it breaks down and stops your process!
How to get this data out to your PLC and even further? This part of the webinar will answer all remaining questions.
Our partner and customer Definox will be a welcomed guest at our online event. They will share their experiences with all of us: From their opinion, what are the main functions of a valve in CIP? What are the main added-values in term of O.E.E of their IO-Link Sorio top unit?
