Processing plants use the same filling station to discharge different products. Before running the next product, the pipelines are washed with CIP chemicals. Automated monitoring and control over the clean-in-place (CIP) process assures uninterrupted production, improved efficiency and consistent end product quality without a shutdown. Moreover, precise control over CIP cleaning adds to food safety.
Product-to-product and product-to-CIP liquid interfaces detection and quality control monitoring is best performed with in-line Vaisala K-PATENTS® Sanitary Refractometer. The refractometer 4-20 mA or Ethernet output signal can be connected to customer's control system to activate the end-product filling with no delay and ensure a correct product and container combinations. This way the customer can monitor and automatically control the switches between product and CIP cycles.
