Clean-In-Place System Information

In our last blog we discussed what a Clean-In-Place (CIP) System is, how it works within the food, beverage, dairy, winery, brewery, cannabis, and alternative foods manufacturing industries, as well as how Placer Process can customize CIP to our customers needs.

When Is A Clean-In-Place System Used?

Typically, CIP Systems are used at the conclusion of the production cycle, flavor changes, or when the equipment with it’s associated piping is ready to be cleaned and sanitized. When possible, it is easier to start the CIP routine immediately after production is complete but depending on the industry and production scheduling that may not always be the most practical. Some manufacturers have sanitation crews on hand with regular cleaning schedules to adhere to throughout the entire facility. Placer Process CIP system can be designed to implement short, regular, or even an extended Clean-In-Place cycle to fit the needs of each food and beverage plant.

Where Can My CIP System Be Installed In My Facility?

Clean-In-Place System can be installed in various environments depending on the needs of the manufacturing facility. The food, beverage, dairy, winery, brewery, cannabis, and alternative foods industries all have differing requirements, environments and nuances to their specific product characteristics; Placer Process has designed, built, and customized CIP Systems for all of these applications. 

While a CIP System is typically placed indoor with the processing equipment, more and more we are installing CIP system outdoor as floor space becomes a scarce real estate as our customers production facility grow.  Placer Process also works with more regulated industries, such as dairy, who need to have their CIP system separated from the process equipment with specific FDA and 3A requirements.
