CIP system reduces water consumption.


Automatic Clean-in-Place (CIP) system for lyophilizers that dramatically reduces water consumption--by up to 75%. The savings provided by this new CIP system is the result of introducing improvements into the mechanical design and control software of the equipment to obtain improved deeming functionality while optimizing water consumption. In this respect, the new automated CIP system introduces notable advances in ecological and process performance. The system takes full advantage of the movement of the shelf stack to clean the chamber walls, the instrument and service connection ports, the chamber-condenser isolation valve and the slot door by a sweep water jet effect. In addition, the cleaning cycle is comprised of several independent steps to reduce the required capacity of the impulsion pump and thereby reduce water consumption. The system has been optimised to minimise the retained volume of water while in 'recirculation' mode and to reduce the spraying time in 'once-through' mode. The new design also minimises the distribution system internal to the equipment and significantly reduces the number of spray nozzles and consequently the water flow rate.
