G&F CIP (Clean-In-Place) tanks provide an automated method of cleaning the interior surfaces of pipes, vessels, equipment, and associated fittings, without major disassembly.
CIP is commonly used for equipment such as piping, tanks, and fillers. CIP employs turbulent flow through piping, and/or spray balls for large surfaces. In some cases, CIP can also be accomplished with fill, soak and agitate.
The CIP systems are meant to deliver highly turbulent, high flow-rate solution, and high energy impinging spray to cause good cleaning.
The benefit to industries that use CIP is that the cleaning is faster, less labor-intensive and more repeatable, and poses less of a chemical exposure risk.
Industries that rely heavily on CIP are those requiring high levels of hygiene, and include: dairy, beverage, brewing, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, processed foods, etc.
