  • Cleaning-in-Place (CIP)

    CIP is a critical process hygiene aspect that helps to ensure the health and safety of the consumer. SPX offers CIP systems through its APV brand.

SPX Systems Contribute to Consumer Health and Safety

Cleaning and sanitizing production equipment is one of the most critical aspects of food processing in order to protect the health and safety of consumers. Proper cleaning is essential for the production of high quality food products, especially those with extended shelf life. SPX has recently published a white paper that focuses on the contributions of clean-in-place (CIP) systems in achieving sanitation in process plants.

CIP is now a very common practice in dairy, processed food, beverage and brewery plants as this technology eliminates the need to strip down, clean and then rebuild process systems and components. The primary commercial advantage is a substantial reduction in the time that the plant is out of production and the ability to use more aggressive cleaning chemicals in a contained environment that cannot be safely handled with manual cleaning.

The white paper discusses the ability to achieve sanitary conditions by looking at the materials, finish, welding and design features that play a role in effective CIP systems. It also provides an overview of the recent development in CIP technology, which is the use of electro-chemically activated water to produce low-cost cleaning and sanitizing solutions.

Together with its other processing solutions, SPX offers a comprehensive platform of skid-mounted CIP solutions. Click here for additional information about CIP and process plant sanitation.
