ClearSol ETOH-G CIP Complete 20+ is a formulated, 50% caustic concentrated cleaner which contains GRAS approved ingredients for ethanol plant CIP cleaning when used under normal operating conditions (see Formulation Tips). Compatible in up to 25 grains of water hardness, ClearSol ETOH-G Complete 20+ provides revolutionary surface tension reducing technology for excellent fermenter tank cleaning.
When diluted to a 5-8% sodium hydroxide (NaOH) cleaning solution, ClearSol ETOH-G CIP Complete 20+ provides very low surface tensions of 30 dynes/cm and can tolerate up to 25 grains (or 430 ppm) water hardness, preventing scale build-up. These features greatly improve ethanol plant CIP systems by improving yield, lowering maintenance costs, reducing cleaning cycle times, and production stops. Requires the injection of DEFOAMERS into the cleaning solution blend tank to control foam. This innovative, brand new technology exhibits the following attributes:
• GRAS approved for ethanol plant CIP cleaning of fermenters.
• Lowers surface tensions of 5% NaOH cleaning solutions to 30 dynes/cm compared to 75+ dynes/cm of NaOH-only cleaning solutions. • Significantly improves ethanol plant CIP systems by improving yield, lowering maintenance costs, reducing cycle times, and production stops.
• Controls hard water up to 25 grains (430 ppm) hardness, even in high-temperatures preventing scale build-up, unlike using NaOH alone. • Some ClearSol ETOH-G CIP Complete 20+ residue may remain in the dried distillers’ grain which may be incorporated into animal feeds.
• Requires the use of DEFOAMERS (also GRAS) to be injected into the cleaning solution blend tank to control foam.
