Why consider automation of evaporator CIP? A successful and repeatable CIP time can vary between 2-6 hours, depending on the system complexity, configuration and level of automation. Every hour of CIP time is at the expense of production time. Full automation, and in many cases, system re-configuration can capture valuable production time.
Clean-in-Place (CIP) is especially important in your production process to maintain product quality. If you are processing wastewater, CIP ensures proper function by preventing buildup within the system, which would affect evaporator efficiency.
Evaluate your Current CIP Regimen
Has the efficiency of your system or your product quality decreased over time? Your CIP system may be the culprit.
Are you performing the manufacturer recommended routine for your evaporator? Has your chemical mix changed? Perhaps an assessment is necessary to determine deviations from the optimal CIP regimen for your system.
Is Your CIP Routine Consistent?
Do you maintain a regular CIP schedule? Are the same staff performing the CIP routinely? If not, is a training refresher required to make sure the appropriate staff are running the system correctly?
Consider Automation of Evaporator CIP
Automating your CIP system takes many potential problematic variables out of the equation. It ensures a properly timed CIP schedule to prevent issues such as buildup. It removes the possibility that an inexperienced staff member may execute the process incorrectly. An automated system also ensures the proper combination of CIP chemicals is used every time.
When establishing automation of evaporator CIP, this is the perfect time to reconfigure your CIP system. A reconfiguration will address any inconsistencies or deficiencies in your current process. Automating the reconfigured system them ensures the proper procedure occurs every single time.
An in-depth review of your evaporator CIP system, potential reconfiguration and automation could help you recoup lost production time, increasing efficiency and profitability of your process.
