Project – The Aberdeen Tanker CIP
HMD has recently been asked to build several self-contained milk bulk Tanker CIP Systems for the milk processing industry, one of which was the Aberdeen Tanker CIP. This was built in a 40 ft container and was designed to clean one tanker at a time. It had its own supply of hot water and compressed air as we had a compressor and boiler fitted in there.
Why use HMD?
HMD build bespoke automated CIP systems at our workshops in Northwich. We ensure that everything that is built complies with the latest BRC Food Safety Scheme and provides advanced cleaning control and ease of use. These systems are designed to remove waste residues and fats and disinfect the inside of bulk tankers after farm collections and the bulk transport of milk. Each tanker has its own data recording of flows, pressures and chemical strengths.
What are the advantages of this contained system for the customer?
Firstly it is fully self-contained with boiler and compressor requiring just a water and power supply. Secondly, it is more efficient, as it can be completely built and tested within our workshop reducing time on site. Thirdly it is portable, meaning it can be easily transported, moved or re-sited should a new location be required. Finally, automatic systems are more effective than manual cleaning, as they have controls in place to keep the clean consistent, repeatable with documentation to prove parameters are met such as conductivity control, temperature control, flow and level along with easy accessible sample points.
