Terlet supplies CIP set to leading manufacturer of sweet sauces and ingredients

Although widely known for the design and construction of food preparation lines, Terlet also supplies turn key CIP sets on a regular basis.
Being a specialist on these process lines, Terlet does not only design CIP sets following the modern standards of  CIP, but also has the knowledge and experience to design CIP sets and the attached software tailor made for the applications the process lines operate in.
The CIP set Terlet has supplied is a 3-tank set, with two independently operating CIP supply and return lines.

Food safety and Cleaning in Place are linked to each other. Like every CIP system Terlet builds, this line has double seat block and bleed valves, separating the three phases, pre-rinse, detergent cleaning and post rinse, both in the supply as in the return lines.
The cleaning process starts with a pre-rinse at around 40°C. This water is drained after a single passage of the equipment to be cleaned.
The next phase, detergent cleaning takes place at high temperature, with caustic based detergent. This water – detergent mixture circulates over equipment and detergent tank.
Prior to CIP the detergent tank is automatically conditioned, meaning that the temperature and the detergent content are brought to set point. For heating a tubular heat exchanger is used, for detergent dosing  a membrane pump is used.
Finally the equipment is flushed with post rinse water. The post rinse tank is the only non-isolated tank, as fresh, cold food grade water is used.
The post rinse water is re-used by pumping it in the pre-rinse tank, to be used as post rinse water in the next CIP run.

The CIP system delivered, like any modern CIP system, recovers post rinse water and circulated detergent water.
Additional savings on water, energy and detergent can be made by minimizing the mixing phase. The mixing phases exist between pre-rinse and detergent cleaning, when the pre-rinse water dilutes the detergent water and between detergent clean and post rinse, when post rinse water dilutes detergent water.
The Terlet CIP set has several features, mainly software orientated, that reduce the mixing phases and thus the use of water, energy and detergent.

Two loops:

The CIP system described has two loops, meaning the two separate objects can be cleaned at the same time, fully independent from each other.
Two objects can even be in the same phase of cleaning, as both loops have their own pump and heat exchanger.
The double seat valves assure that the two flows cannot cross and cause contamination.
