Challenges businesses are facing?


CIP process involves high investments in terms of the media used to clean tanks e.g. caustic, acid, fresh water.


Running CIP also equates to higher downtime and less production time. Time is of crucial essence in many plants running full production, sometimes 24 hours 7 days a week.


The importance of cleaning your tanks efficiently relates directly to product quality. It is of utmost priority to clean the tanks and process lines adequately before the next product batch.


Most countries require a certificate of confined spaces in order to enter and clean the tank manually.
