CIP Systems

Clean in Place systems for the food industry

Built to recognised industry codes of practice, BCH work in conjunction with our customer ensuring that every system is tailored to meet the specific process application – whether it be a simple once through total loss rinse system – or a fully automated multi-channel recovery system.

Many BCH CIP Systems have been supplied specifically for the sanitary standards required in the ready meals industry  with a typical washing process consisting of several rinsing cycles where the cleaning material is circulated through the pipework, valves, pumps, cooking equipment and holding vessel.   High levels of plant cleanliness are required as minimum standard.

Integrated CIP systems can offer efficiencies in terms of increasing the line production time available, reduction of cleaning materials (water, detergent and manpower) and effluent charges.

Typically, these systems are custom designed and manufactured as a fully assembled and pre-wired modular skid package

• Stainless steel construction throughout
• Sanitary design principles
• Up to 6,000-litre capacity feed and recovery tanks
• Fully automated sequencing of the cleaning process along with complete integration with the core food process
• On-board HMI controls with stand-alone PLC connected to the main process plant via Ethernet
• Selectable and configurable cleaning recipes via the HMI – different cleaning sequences for different parts of the plant
• Automatic detergent dosing, with full monitoring of outgoing and incoming detergent strength (pH conductivity probes)
• Multi-channel options, each with variable speed delivery pump control
• Automatic monitoring of water flowrate and temperature on the flow return feed of each individual channel provided
• On-board steam heated heat exchanger systems complete with modulated steam control
• Optional waste product recovery tank
