  • The system is hygienically designed with no dead zones, limited flow interruptions, and a good drainage system.
  • The nozzles and rotating spraying device effectively the tank by reaching the full surface of the tank. These are periodically checked for blockages.
  • The CIP equipment is sufficiently separated from active production lines (for , through the use of double valves, manual couplings, interruptions in the pipework or make-or-break connections with proxy switches as interlocks) to prevent or protect against .

Validation CIP System Procedure

to or additions to our CIP system will be validated. All changes are tracked and recorded in the CIP system log. The CIP system must be operated in such a way that effective cleaning can be ensured:

  • The process parameters, time, detergent concentration, flow rate/flow and temperatures are defined to ensure that the correct is removed (e.g. mud, , vegetative microorganisms, spores). These process parameters depend on the and are validated and recorded in the of changes.
  • The concentration of the cleaning agent is checked regularly.
  • A CIP process check is performed by an of the rinse water and/or testing the first product that passes through the line after the CIP for the presence of cleaning fluids or by ATP testing, allergens, or microorganisms if necessary.
  • The detergent tanks are stored, and a log is kept as they are tapped, cleaned, filled, and emptied. Collected rinse water is monitored for residues from the cleaning agents.
