Every instant coffee installation requires a cleaning plant. For this purpose TEC Square designs a variety of CIP plant solutions. These range from almost manual to completely automated and integrated systems. The choice depends in general on the needs of the plant and the available budget. Moreover TEC Square believes that a good cleaning concept should minimize the operational downtime. We therefore typically provide shorter operational cleaning times than traditional in the industry.

TEC Square – Different CIP Solutions

  • Manual installations
    CIP Manual
  • Manual CIP installations require make-up in the extract tanks. From here the operator circulates the CIP solution through the chosen circuit. For this purpose several circuits will exist next to each other and each requires independent operation. A simple solution consequently depends on manual intervention by hook-up plates. The design of such a system is thus in general as cheap as possible, while it provides sufficient separation for GMP purposes. TEC Square will write out cleaning sequences for the operators to follow. Such a system normally sends all spent CIP solution to the waste water treatment plant, without too much recuperation.
  • Semi-Automatic Installations
    CIP Semi-automatic
  • Semi-automatic installations normally have a dedicated CIP plant. In such a plant operators prepare solutions ahead of time. In general all redundant streams of water from the plant are recuperated, with the aim to reuse these as rinsing fluid. The plant has several CIP sections and consequently the operator can select each section through leak-proof valves or hook-up plates. If all valves are automatic, normally the automation can provide automatic sequences. Such a system aim to recuperate solutions and sends only spent solutions to the waste-water treatment plant for handling.
  • Full Automatic Installations
    CIP Automatic
  • TEC Square designs full automatic plants to switch over from the HMI in control rooms. Different styles exist. TEC Square engineers to CIP Circuits to minimize overall cleaning time. Hereby thus maximizing the plant output. The operator runs all cleaning circuits in full automatic mode based on adjustable timers. The system sends cleaning solutions back to the CIP plant. Such a system aim to recuperate a maximum of CIP solution and sends only spent CIP solutions to the waste-water treatment plant for handling.
