HRS Single Tank CIP

Maintaining hygienic, and in some cases sterile, production equipment is a key aspect of modern food processing, as well as the production of pharmaceuticals and other products. Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) is the standard technique to effectively and efficiently clean equipment which contains pipework, enclosed spaces and small apertures in situ.

HRS Heat Exchangers offers cleaning-in-place (CIP) and sterilisation-in-place (SIP) systems for cleaning and disinfection for all hygienic industries, including food and pharmacy industry systems. Our single- and multi-tank HRS CIP/SIP Systems are supplied complete with a control system to enable automated cleaning cycles.

The systems are fully skid mounted and have modular designs for quick and easy site installation. The single-tank (ST) system is designed for simple cleaning applications where recovery of the cleaning fluid is not required, while multi-tank (MT) systems are suitable for more complex situations.

CIP System For small, portable applications the tank can be heated to 85°C using electric heating elements, but steam heating using an HRS K Series multitube heat exchanger is also available. Units start at 500 litre capacity, and single tank systems are available up to 2,500 litres. Larger systems can be provided using multiple tanks and centrifugal sanitary pumps are fitted as standard.

Systems are fully automated using Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) systems and Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI), which can be stand-alone or integrated into the factory’s main control system.
