The Tetra PakBag Tipping unit CIP offers easy cleaning thanks to an ergonomic redesign, new configurable features, as well as added safety elements, all of which are not currently offered together in the U.S.
The modular orbital cleaner OC200 rotates around the horizontal and vertical axis. The OC200 can be equipped with two, three or four nozzles of different length and diameter. The internal profiling of the nozzles creates a high impact jet, which ensures intensive cleaning of the inner surface of the tank or container. The orbital cleaner can be operated at pressures ranging from 4 to 10 bar. It covers a wide range of tank sizes with its variance in terms of the number of nozzles, variable nozzle diameters, lengths and rotation speeds. Thanks to its powerful jets, it can clean tanks with a diameter of up to 36 metres.
The LEFF (low emission flip flop) technology in GEA VARIVENT Mixproof Valves from GEA, Germany, is said to provide up to 90% savings in clean-in-place (CIP) media such as cleaning agents, water and wastewater.
Areas of expertise include liquid ingredient handling, design of fully automated clean-in-place systems, process utilities design, commissioning of new equipment and machine safety and guarding design.
