CIP - Cleaning In Place - stands for plant systems with mechanical and chemical devices for the cleaning of piping, storage tanks, aseptic tanks, complete production lines, packaging machines and various equipment that comes into contact with the product in question. CIP cleaning units allow for the preparation of plant equipment for use with new products without the need to dismantle any parts.
Prototech designs and manufactures Cleaning In Place washing units that are able to accurately control the parameters required to guarantee cleaning and sanitisation by means of a programmable logic controller. The controllers primarily check temperature data, concentration of water-detergent solutions and contact times of the detergent with the systems and equipment being cleaned and sanitised.
Prototech manufactures both manual and automatic CIP units, integrated or placed on fixed or mobile platforms with local or remote control in process control rooms. Prototech's CIP units are designed and manufactured according to 3A Standards and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) for the Food, Pharma and Chemical industries.
