Clear Solutions USA has a long history, several decades, of performing CIP services with successful trials and long term clients. Our products and processes save our clients money in the brewing, dairy, vehicle washing, anodizing, and ETHANOL industries primarily by reducing down time and increasing all around efficiency of the plant through cleanliness. Below is noted a step-by-step outline of how a CIP plant trial is conducted in an ethanol plant.
Information must be gathered relative to type of equipment to be cleaned and cleaning procedures currently used in the target plant. Below is a list of typical information gathered:
- Does the target ethanol plant have methanators, spray balls, trays, etc.?
- What CIP procedure(s) are currently being used?
- Since the basic for CIP cleaning is general is based on four variables, these need to be determined.
- Water hardness and consistency
- pH ranges
- Final concentration of the solution
- Is the caustic soda used for pH control? With one tank?
Once the above information is determined, a formulation for the trial will be developed by the Clear Solutions USA team and presented to the target plant. Our Director of CIP Operations will be onsite to assist with launching the trial, monitoring the progress, and making recommendations as necessary for a successful outcome. Based on our experience, the target plant should be on the system from two to three weeks consistently for optimum results.
Initial benefits can be proven in several ways (i.e., ATP testing and visually), and measurable long-term benefits will be discussed with the target plant team. Recommendations will then be presented to show long-term financial benefit using the Clear Solutions technology.
Initial material for the trial is purchased by the target plant. However, if after following our guidelines, the trial does not result in a positive outcome, the cost of the trial material will be reimbursed to the target plant.
