The MPE Clean-In-Place (CIP) Chain-Vey system is specially-designed to provide a fully-washable transport system for sanitary applications.
The CIP cycle is FULLY-AUTOMATED by the CIP cart, which includes a PLC control panel with touchscreen. The cleaning cycle first FLOODS the conveyor with a concentration-controlled solution of water and detergent, then a RINSE cycle commences, flooding the system with fresh water or water and SANITIZER and drains when complete. Finally, a DRYING cycle completely dries the conveyor to prepare for the subsequent product batch.
- Water-tight flanged construction with automated cleaning system eliminates manual cleaning methods
- Reduces system downtime required for cleaning by 75% compared to non-CIP methods
- Unlike comparable pneumatic systems, the CIP system does not require disassembly for cleaning
- Customizable control system for your application and supervisory system
- Process tracking such as water temperature and detergent concentration
- Tested and proven to pass all swab testing, including aerobic plate count, coliform and bi-luminous
- Quick change-over between difficult-to-clean products
