How does it work?

  1. The process begins with a pre-wash/pre-rinse using the first recovered rinse liquor from the last clean. This liquor will contain weak detergent solutions so it makes the best use of the rinse liquor to pre-wash the main, filler or vessel.

  2. The pre-wash returned liquor to the CIP set is now spent and potentially contaminated, so it's sent to drain.

  3. After a preset time (held in the clean recipe for each clean), the pre-rinse liquor will be chased out by primary detergent.

  4. The primary detergent will eventually arrive back at the CIP set.

  5. The flow switch will verify return flow, and the conductivity probe will detect the water/detergent interface.

  6. When detergent is detected, it will close the drain and divert the retained detergent to the detergent tank.

  7. Then, after a recipe determined detergent cleaning time, clean rinse liquid will be sent around the cleaning loop. This will now chase out detergent back to its holding tank.

  8. When the detergent tank is full, it will divert the first runnings of the returned rinse water to the recover tank to provide the next batch of pre-wash liquor.

  9. The final action of mos CIP cleans is to add a terminal sterilant to the clean detergent-free rinse liquor. This is injected by volume into the system to recipe concentration.

A key feature of Brewology CIP set is its ability to clean "lights out" when there are no operators around. If you add to the system multi-route auto valves, it's then possible to stack cleans. When one CIP clean is complete it can process the next stacked CIP route. If an alarm occurs during lights out CIP, the HMI/PLC can send out messages to enable a remote operator to remotely view and manage the issue.
