Problem: Solved | Cleaning Up a CIP System

A Caloris customer had an older evaporator whose two CIP caustic and acid reclaim tanks were in the same room as their spray dryer powder silos. Their objective was to get liquid systems out of that room entirely.

Caloris had already supplied new reclaim tanks for two recently installed Caloris DFC® evaporators. We proposed repiping the CIP system for the original evaporator to take advantage of the newer tanks. The customer could then decommission the old tanks and remove them to make it a dry room.

Caloris first had to send a process engineer to site for a pre-engineering effort to map out the routing, materials and valving/controls requirements to achieve the conversion.

Our engineer determined what tubing, fittings and other materials were required. No other hardware or new valves would be needed. Caloris supplied the labor and equipment to make the changes and then decommissioned the old system for removal. Caloris also made an engineer available to monitor the new CIP system set-up for several CIP cycles to confirm proper operation.

With the old CIP system disconnected from the processing line, the customer can remove those old tanks and transition the powder silo room to a true “dry” process room.
