CIP cleaning processes place high demands on the pump technology used. The quality and performance of the rinsing pump are critical factors for the success of the cleaning process. The problems with the use of CIP are often due to a poorly functioning return system. This results in an increased use of cleaning agents as well as heat and working time. In addition, there is more waste to be disposed of.
To avoid this, it must be ensured that the return system returns the cleaning solutions quickly and efficiently. A poorly working or incorrectly set rinsing pump does not meet this requirement. It causes a backwater of the cleaning solution and a poor cleaning result. Only a reliable and powerful rinsing pump that is precisely matched to the desired flow rate ensures that fresh cleaning agent always reaches the surfaces to be cleaned and effectively removes the dirt.
The fluid velocity is of great importance for the cleaning result. For optimum results, the specified values must be neither exceeded nor undershot. If high-pressure cleaning heads are used, the pump technology used must provide the required working pressure.
