Get your Cleaning In Place under control with Pure Cleaning
While the Cleaning in Place (CIP) systems operate according to the principles of TACT *, few are able to optimize the duration of cleaning according to the actual cleanliness of equipment.
Therefore, InUse has developed the Pure Cleaning turnkey solution, which combined with Satron sensors, optimizes cleaning performance.
Pure Cleaning is the responsible solution to optimize the duration of Cleaning In Place without compromising their compliance : an ideal lever for manufacturers wishing to improve the availability of production lines and significantly reduce their water consumption.

Combining two expertises
InUse, editor of connected software solutions dedicated to manufacturers, has joined forces with Capflow, a company specialized in liquid process control and supplier of Satron sensors, to deploy the Pure Cleaning solution for food and beverage industries.
Access the profiles of all cleaning in place cycles
In just one day, the full CIP unit is connected to the network and the key parameters of each cycle are logged. Their visualization allows an understanding of each type of equipment washed and on each cleaning phase at a glance.
Ensure compliance and traceability of Cleaning in place cycles always
Pure Cleaning automatically detects Cleaning in place cycles that does not apply to factory quality standards by continuously analyzing key parameters. The logging of these incidents makes it possible to assess the level of compliance of the Cleaning In Place and to ensure their traceability over time.
Assess easily the performance of Cleaning In Place cycles and measure your savings
Get a score for each Cleaning in place and easily analyze overall performance. Intensify analysis by comparing the theoretical duration of the cleaning phases with the actual duration, and thus easily identify phases to optimise.
Execute all optimization projects at the same time to safely reduce the duration of your CIPs
Benefit from the recommendations offered on the optimal duration of each phase of your Cleaning in place to help adapt your cycles without compromising compliance. All optimization projects can be managed centrally from a dedicated module.

What is Cleaning In Place?
Cleaning in place is an essential operation in any production site where systematic equipment cleaning between different production batches is necessary. A pre-requisite in the so-called process industries (food, pharmaceutical, chemicals, etc.), cleaning in place is carried out according to the principles of TACT:
– Temperature: Minimum expected level or between a minimum and a given maximum
– Action: Washing mechanics based in particular on the flow in pipes or the use of spray balls
– Chemistry: The use of cleaning products such as soda or acid to dissolve organic and mineral matter
– Time: Minimum duration expected for each of the three criteria above, depending on the washing phase
The cleaning in place cycles are administered from a cleaning station which supplies the various plant equipment via dedicated lines.
Static cleaning in place, a source of significant waste
Cleaning in place cycles are carried out according to methods previously defined for the most difficult objects to clean. However, depending on types of residue to be cleaned, the time required to carry out certain phases of these cleaning in place phases can be greatly optimized without compromising the integrity of the products. This prevents overconsumption of water and electricity.
Optical sensors can assess the level of cleaning necessary
In general, sensors that assess the actual level of cleaning of the equipment and pipes are not present at cleaning stations. However, the installation of optical sensors at the inlet and outlet of the cleaning line is a safe and efficient way for impartial data on what really happens during cleaning in place cycles. The combination of ultraviolet and infrared technologies accurately measures the level of organic and mineral residues present in the cleaning installations.
The convergence and stability of the levels measured at the end of the phase between the sensors located at the inlet and at the outlet of the line indicates that the current phase can end.
There is a need to collect cleaning in place data and assess their compliance under all circumstances
If optical sensors measure the level of cleanliness at a given time, the adjustment of cleaning programs is a decision that requires a larger volume of events to determine a typical profile for each cleanup phase. In this context, the systematic and continuous collection of cleaning in place data from the station as well as from optical sensors forms the basis of this optimization process.
This is also based on compliance with the cleaning in place rules for both existing programs and those which will need to be optimized subsequently. The implementation of a notification system in the event of non-compliance is an essential characteristic to safely optimize its cleaning in place cycles.
Recommendations are automated to easily define the optimal duration of the cleaning in place phases
Each piece of equipment in the plant generally benefits from two separate washing programs (short and long). These programs comprise between three and five distinct phases and there may be up to several hundred different cleaning in place phases optimizable within the factory.
Using a module to manage all of these optimization projects and the automated recommendations for each of them is a sure performance accelerator as it defines the optimal duration of the phases
Greater availability of production lines and significantly reduced environmental impact
Although Cleaning in place is an ancillary process to plant production, its optimization has a real impact on performance. By reducing the time spent cleaning, production lines availability are optimized and therefore produce more. In addition, the consumption of water and electricity during cleaning is significantly reduced.
