CIP system is composed of detergent storage tank, acid and alkali
supply device, heating device, process pump, reflux pump, pipes, steam
valves and so on.
The main parameters of CIP system is the detergent’s categories,
viscosity, temperature and velocity of flow. The alkali is usually of
NaOH, acid is usually of nitric acid or phosphoric acid, the viscosity
is 1-3%. After heating, the velocity of flow is 1.5-3m/s.
There are usually 3 detergent storage tanks: acid tank, alkali tank and
hot water tank. According to the cleaning aim, the tanks could be
classified as single circuit, two-circuit, multiloop, etc,.
The automatic CIP system is able to automatically take on the detergent
