Bellshill Tanker CIP
HMD was recently approached by a company in the food and drinks industry who asked us to build the Bellshill Tanker CIP. It was built in a 40 ft containerized system and consisted of two cleaning tanker bay areas.
The CIP system was designed and built in our workshops and then once the container was in place on site the CIP system was then installed in it. Each of the two bay areas were built to have a total automated cleaning time of 20 minutes. For ease and speed, we design systems that are fast and efficient.
We can also adapt the CIP systems we build to accommodate what you already have on site. For example, with this particular unit, it was designed to use site steam.
The steam runs through our plate heat exchanger in order to heat the Detergent Tank, along with other incoming services such as water, air and neat Chemical. Using a plate heat exchanger means that whatever passes through the plates are exposed to a much larger surface area which means they heat more quickly.
We use a variety of control instrumentation within the container to control the CIP with every instrument having a feedback to our HMI.
