Press Release - CIP Feature (1st July 2008)
ABM's Clean in Place system is designed for greater plant flexibility and can help achieve CIP capacity expansion as well as reduction in overall downtime due to the improved plant efficiency.
The latest generation of CIP Control Systems provides advanced features and yet still retains it's ease of use and flexibility to suit all plant requirements.
Any number of circuits may be cleaned, limited only by detergent volume and there is an unlimited number of cleaning programmes available.
Many clients realise that limitations in existing CIP systems often result in significant caustic losses as well as packaging capacity constraints due to time-consuming CIP delays and mechanical breakdowns.
Because of this ABM has looked at how plant CIP systems can be redesigned to achieve a number of targets including :-
- Reduction in process delays due to CIP problems
- Greater environmental consideration
- Provision of Acid clean facility for all vessels and lines
- Increased automation reduces operator time
- Modify CIP and Process Routes to improve overall cleaning efficiency
- Provide Graphics and Recipes via an existing Scada station
- Improve alarm reporting to minimise downtime
- Provide a facility to collect the CIP cycle information for management reporting purposes
The operator interface provides :-
- Fully detailed plant mimics.
- Full Operator Controls i.e. Start/Stop/Hold functions etc.
- Recipe Display/Modification facilities.
- Manual Functions for all plant items including analogue controllers.
If you would like ABM carry out a survey on your existing CIP system and to discuss any possible improvements and future expansion please call ABM on 0151 420 2829.
