Modern Process Equipment: Chain-Vey

Superior Sanitation

About Clean-in-Place

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.
