CIP or Clean-In-Place procedures have become the preferred method cleaning and sanitizing production machinery in many food, beverage and pharmaceutical plants.
Based on the Dimpleflo Industrial Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger, Teralba CIP Heaters are designed to heat CIP (or Clean-In-Place) solutions, using hot water or steam. Teralba Industries’ CIP heaters are rated up to 1200 kPa which means line pressure steam (up to 12 bar) can be used directly as the heating media. Using line pressure steam in a CIP heat exchanger provides significant cost savings on steam equipment, as pressure reducers and condensate pumps are not often required. The higher inlet and outlet pressures are capable of returning the condensate, directly from the CIP Heater.
As with all Dimpleflo Heat Exchangers, Dimpleflo CIP Heaters are made in australia and can be configured to fit any space or CIP heating application. Standard lengths include; 1 metre, 2 metre, 3 metre and 6 metre sizes and fittings can be supplied to match existing pipework connections.
Standard Dimpleflo CIP Heater models are detailed below, however custom design for specific applications are made to order.
A CIP (clean in place) system produces washing and sanitising fluid for almost all the machinery and piping systems in your manufacturing plant, enabling you to save a lot of time and effort while upholding the highest standards of hygiene and complying with any relevant health and safety regulations that apply to your business. The CIP System is usually made up of a heat exchanger , mix tank, associated valves & pipework and control system , and it’s capable of sanitising machinery that’s challenging to disassemble. Usually, the CIP consists of three tanks, which vary in size and contents depending on what you produce. You may require a few spare parts depending on the unique needs of your facility.
A CIP tank heater is most commonly used in industrial settings, where heavy equipment and machinery needs to be kept clean and sanitised at all times to ensure a safe working environment and a high-quality final product. Some of the most common uses for CIP Clean in Place solutions include cleaning fermenters, bioreactors, mix vessels, heat exchangers and mixing tanks in industries such as pharmaceutical manufacturing, biotech manufacturing, and food and beverage production. CIP units are especially useful for keeping heating tanks that are difficult to assemble clean and efficient. Provided the installation is completed correctly and you stay on top of maintenance, your CIP unit can easily last several years or even decades.
A CIP shell and tube heat exchanger solution is especially useful in dairy production plants as it can be used to chemically and mechanically clean items of equipment such as pasteurizers, tanks and pipelines without them needing to be disassembled. A CIP-able heat exchanger in a dairy production facility consists of all the equipment and machinery you need to store, track and distribute cleaning and sanitising solutions throughout your entire facility.
