Leader in CIP optimization

You’re in good company:

Do most of your CIP washes take too long?

Nope, you don´t need 30 minutes of hot caustic to clean a simple stainless steel pipe.

 

But do you have occasionally problems with your cleaning results?

Although most washes take too long, you may still have few challenging objects, that will not come clean.


We’ve patented a solution to cut the excess time of each CIP-wash.

Turnkey project model for dairies and breweries

How do we achieve all this? We’ve developed a turnkey project model for CIP optimizations. We analyze the entire CIP-process from start to end multiple times. And that’s why we’re the only provider to guarantee results. Our services cover:


Statistical Analysis

Understanding your CIP begins with collecting data from the washes.

Statistical analyses reveal the length of the safety margins of your washes.

Statistical analyses reveal the length of the safety margins of your washes.

Safety to 6 sigma level

If an object is washed once per day, increasing your safety margin from 4 sigma to 6 sigma will reduce the number of times the object is still unclean from twice a year to less than once in 800 years.

Reduce your CIP times by 60%

Most CIP objects are easy to clean but the safety margins are dictated by the challenging objects. Data from over 200 sites globally show that majority of washes can be cut to half of the original times.

Example: Analyses of the efficient length of all CIP washes in a product tank in a year

Data Analysis

Comparing return and forward spectrum

When there is more absorbing material in the return than in the forward CIP line the phase is still removing dirt from the object. When both signals are in the same level, no more dirt comes off the cleanable object. This defines effective and ineffective phase time.

Seeking variance from other parameters

The TTS-Ciptec system includes others such as conductivity, flow and temperature during the wash. This data enables analysis of different phenoma of the wash and discovery of anomalies causing variance.

An example of intake pipeline wash which has been utilized for raw milk transfer. The example shows that wash phases consist of effective and ineffective time. It also shows that acid has no effect as there is no heat treatment and thus no mineral build up. Acid could be used once per week to passivate the stainless steel.

Methodology of the CIP optimization

What happens during the wash?

Forward sensors detect the spectrum and clarity of the ingoing washing liquid.

Forward sensors detect

The CIP wash removes product remains and soil from the washable object.

A mix of product remains, and cleaning liquids return through Ciptec sensors.

All sensors transmit their data to TTS-Ciptec’s Data Logging Unit (DLU) in the plant.

The DLU sends data packets wirelessly to TTS-Ciptec’s data analytics centre for analysis.

Spectrophotometers detect contaminants at ppm-level

Spectrum absorption measurement enables you to detect the amount of soil in your cleaning liquids.

spectrum-measurement

A spectrophotometer measures a light beam going through the CIP pipe. Most of the light passes through the water, but chemicals and milk products in the water will absorb light.


Why better than conductivity?

The difference in conductivity between tap water and cleaning solutions makes conductivity meters practical for controlling the chemical concentration and phase separation in CIP lines.

Whereas conductivity can detect a 0.1 % change in chemical/water concentration, it is limited in detecting milk residues from water or from chemicals, as

a) The conductivity of milk is relatively close to that of water.

b) Both milk residues and water will lower the conductivity of the CIP chemical phase.

But milk residues will be seen accurately by absorption, either from CIP chemicals or water, as milk residues absorb much more light than water or CIP chemicals.

Optimize evaporators for capacity gains

We at TTS-Ciptec specialize in analyzing the time of efficiency and quality of evaporator washes. We do it with patented and most accurate spectrophotometric techniques and validate the results by statistical data analysis to six sigma level.

5 % extra evaporator capacity

extra-evaporator

  • 20–30 % average washing time reduction.
  • 1– 1,5 hours of extra production time per day depending on evaporator type.
  • Gain more production time and operate on maximum efficiency.

Increase product quality

sweetmilk

  • See what flows through your washing lines to detect anomalies.
  • Prevent biofilm formation and gelification.
  • Reduce thermophile risk in evaporators.

Your current evaporator cleaning system doesn’t indicate how long you should be washing to get production unit clean. Conductivity, flow and thermometer can identify the correct wash phase, but they can’t identify efficiency or result of the washing process.
We can.
