Technologies to improve industrial cleaning Processes: cost effectiveness and environmental footprint reduction.
Breakthrough technology allowing a permanent reuse of industrial cleaning chemicals.
Nowadays Clean-in-Place (CIP) equipment and cleaning processes are widely used on industrial plants: Food & Beverage, pharmaceutics, cosmetics, textiles, metallurgy, etc. These processes require a lot of resources: water, energy and chemicals (caustic, nitric acid, …). GreenCIP represents a true asset for industrial plants since it allows numbers of economic and environmental benefits: • A significant gain of Quality: cleaning chemicals being regenerated not only keep all their cleaning properties, but their performances get even improved naturally thanks to an auto-additivation process. • A reduction of Capital and Operational expenditures: GreenCIP brings huge reduction of water, energy, chemicals consumption and even cleaning time (productivity). In addition, water pollution emissions are reduced which means a reduction of the waste water treatment plant and of its operational costs (chemical and electricity). • A positive global environmental impact: GreenCIP opens to a massive impact on aquatic ecotoxicity (-95%), terrestrial ecotoxicity (-90%) and climate impact (-96%) – based on a Life Cycle Assessment study (ISO 14040).
A new type of optical sensor to optimize the sequencing of Clean-in-Place (CIP) operations.
Today CIP operating is mainly based on an empirical practice, as there is no proper measurement to check on line and adapt time sequences to the real needs. For this reason, actual CIP operating bring large overconsumption of water, energy and time. Opti²Clean allows to visualize and optimize the set the timing of each cleaning phase at its best. This impacts electricity and water consumption but also global productivity of the plant by allowing more production during the same shift. In addition, this means that investments in new equipment can be avoided or delayed.
