Maintaining hygienic, and in some cases sterile, production equipment is a key aspect of modern food processing, as well as the production of pharmaceuticals and other products. Cleaning-in-place (CIP) is the standard technique to effectively and efficiently clean equipment which contains pipework, enclosed spaces, and small apertures in situ.

HRS Heat Exchangers offers CIP and sterilization-in-place (SIP) systems for cleaning and disinfection for all hygienic industries, including food and pharmaceutical industry systems. Its single- and multi-tank HRS CIP/SIP systems are supplied complete with a control system to enable automated cleaning cycles.

The systems are fully skid mounted and have modular designs for quick and easy site installation. The single-tank system is designed for simple cleaning applications where recovery of the cleaning fluid is not required, while multi-tank systems are suitable for more complex situations.

For small, portable applications the tank can be heated to 185 °F using electric heating elements, but steam heating using an HRS K Series multitube heat exchanger is also available. Units start at 132-gallon capacity, and single tank systems are available up to 660 gallons. Larger systems can be provided using multiple tanks and centrifugal sanitary pumps are fitted as standard.

Systems are fully automated using programmable logic controller systems and human-machine interfaces, which can be stand-alone or integrated into the factory’s main control system.
