Advanced CIP Solution for dairy, beverage and brewing sector

Cleaning in Place (CIP) is a cutting-edge hygiene method crucial in industries like food, dairy, brewing and beverage, aligning seamlessly with Ecocare's commitment to cleanliness and safety. In essence, CIP solution involves automated cleaning of equipment without the need for manual disassembly. This streamlined process ensures thorough sanitation, significantly reducing downtime and optimizing operational efficiency. By implementing advanced CIP systems, businesses can uphold the highest hygiene standards, particularly in sectors where food safety is paramount. To delve deeper into this advanced cleaning technology, explore tailored solutions designed to meet the specific needs of your operations, promoting resource conservation and enhanced cleanliness.

CIP design Criteria

Ensuring proper cleaning of the equipment is not only crucial, but it is also imperative to safeguard the product from any potential contamination caused by CIP solutions.

The plant is cleaned through a process that involves either dissolving the soil or removing it by vigorously scrubbing the surfaces. Prior to cleaning, all products in the plant must undergo reclamation.

Following the cleaning process, it is essential to sanitise the plant by eliminating any pathogenic organisms, although not necessarily all microorganisms.

It is necessary to always implement a system that ensures a physical separation between a product line and a CIP line in order to completely prevent any potential chemical contamination of the product.

Fluid flow velocity

Cleaning of process plants should be conducted using turbulent flow conditions during the Clean-in-Place (CIP) procedure. If the flow rate of the CIP is not turbulent enough, the cleaning efficiency will be reduced as it will not be able to dislodge the soil from the surfaces effectively. Turbulence is considered sufficient when the fluid velocity ranges from 1.5 to 2.1 m/s.

Increasing the speed at which cleaning is performed enhances the effectiveness of removing dirt and debris in tight areas such as instrumentation or sample valves, as well as in narrow spaces like dead legs in pipelines.

Traditionally, it has been presumed that flow velocities exceeding 2.1 m/s are not advantageous. Recent research indicates that increasing velocities can potentially reduce the concentration of cleaning chemicals in CIP solutions.

Centrifugal pumps are the preferred choice for CIP (Clean-in-Place) systems as they allow for flexible adjustment of flow rate and pressure according to the requirements of the CIP circuit. Each CIP supply pump must be appropriately sized to accommodate the circuit with the highest flow rate and pressure requirements. The flow rate can be determined using the calculator provided above.


It is advisable to ensure that the tank bottom is empty (without any filling) while the CIP circulation is taking place. Therefore, it is necessary for the CIP return pumps to have a larger capacity in terms of flow rate than the supply pump, and these pumps should be of the self-priming liquid ring type. 

Centrifugal pumps are recommended for CIP booster pumps, and it is important to select the appropriate size to prevent cavitation in the system.

Understanding the Importance of CIP in Ensuring Purity Across Industries

In the changing world of businesses like milk, drinks, food stores and beers even makeup, Cleaning in Place (CIP) is a very important task. Let's look at why CIP is not only a process but also very important for making sure things are clean, work well and the product stays good. 1. Purity Beyond Perception In businesses where customer faith is very important, a clean view goes together with actually being clear. CIP makes sure that all surfaces like machines and pipes are always free from germs. It's a planned way of doing things. This isn't just a look that makes sure things are clean, it's a promise to create very pure products. 2. Eliminating the Biofilm Conundrum Biofilm, a tough group of tiny creatures stuck together, always causes problems in keeping things clean. CIP rules, made better by special cleaning things like EKO POWER PAA Sterized and EKO POWER 1053 Germkill, focus on removing biofilm. This makes sure products are very clean according to the highest health rules. 3. Preserving Product Integrity in Cosmetics In the makeup business, where recipes are as different as people buying them, keeping products good is very important. CIP is very important in stopping contamination. It keeps colors, scents and textures safe. Finally it makes sure that people get products just like they should be. 4. Efficiency in Every Rinse Efficiency isn't only about saving time and resources; it's also about making processes the best they can be. CIP with advanced tools helps to clean fast. This lowers break time and increases the hours spent on making things. This leads to a more simple setup that helps make the whole making process better. 5. Cost-Efficiency Across Industries In places like dairy farms and cosmetic labs, all over the world, they face the same problem. They need to save money without letting down quality. Ecocare's CIP solutions, made better after years of experience, give you money saving by using less stuff and cutting total cleaning costs. It shows that we are dedicated to practices that are environmentally friendly and cost-effective. 6. Customized Solutions for Cosmetics We know that makeup-making has special problems, so we design cleaning plans at Ecocare to meet the exact requirements of making cosmetics. We know how to keep tools for mixing clean and keep mixes strong in cosmetic making. Our skills cover everything about making beauty products. 7. Regulatory Compliance and Consumer Confidence Following the rules is not just a law thing; it's a promise to keep people safe. Ecocare's CIP solutions do more than just meet the rules. They make buyers feel sure that each item is cleaned very thoroughly before it's sold.
