Cleaning in Place (CIP) and Sterilising in Place (SIP) are fundamental systems of pharmaceutical cleaning used on machines and production plants.
Atec’s portable and fixed CIP/SIP stations allow for easy cleaning of containers (washing, sterilising, drying). Detergent is dosed into the CIP/SIP storage tank and then pumped into the container using a piston pump. Liquid is then continuously circulated through the container during the cleaning cycle. Afterward, the conductivity of the rinse water is tested using an in-line filter. If the filter is contaminated, the cleaning cycle must be redone.
