Efficiency in your CIP Clean in place processes

Reduce product loss and energy costs

As raw material and energy cost rise, asset utilization within food & beverage plants become even more crucial. Many food processors still operate clean in place systems with little automation, relying on a purely timing-based process and manual verification. Installing inline instrumentation provides real-time monitoring and control which helps reduce cleaning time, energy and detergents while providing full traceability.

Our Offering

We understand your challenges in demanding CIP applications and provide you a full line of hygienic, sanitary measurement solutions. Our proven portfolio of flow, level, pressure, temperature and analytical instrumentation is manufactured to the highest quality standards and meets all food & beverage requirements and regulations. We provide you:

  • Ensure cleanability with compliance to 3-A, FDA and EHEDG

  • Reduced energy cost and downtime

  • Robust, reliable and industry-optimized instrumentation

  • Seamless integration into any control platform

  • Innovative self-diagnostics to ensure full confidence in measurements


Accurate concentration measurement

To ensure optimal performance of a CIP system it is critical to know the detergent concentration is both in the loop and the makup-tank.

Detergent concentration measurement
Our expertise in the field

Conductivity has least amount of maintenance and calibration requirements and enables you to reduce energy, chemical and water usage. Endress+Hauser offer multiple conductivity sensor and transmitter options designed specifically for CIP service. From entry level compact to multi-channel systems with Ethernet integration capabilities.

  • Optimize concentration measurement with the right conductivity sensor or transmitter for your application.

Efficient phase separation

Know exactly what is in the line and remove the guesswork. Transition sensors determine when each phase of the CIP cycle ends and the next should begin.

Efficient phase separation
Our expertise in the field

Conductivity, optical turbidity or pH sensors are used to determine when product or rinse water is in the line starting the CIP system only if zero product remains after rinsing. Fast response is very important to reduce product and water loss as well as time savings.

Reliable level measurement

Inventory of CIP detergents need to be monitored to ensure stable supply.

Level detection in a tank
Our expertise in the field

Ultrasonic, guided or free space radar are common methods for detergent storage. Makup, rinse and recovery tanks are commonly monitored with hydrostatic or capacitance sensors, selection are driven by tank size and personal preference. System safety is ensured by low/high level alarms and empty pipe detection (pump protection) and are most commonly done with tuning fork or conductive/capacitance sensors.

  • Identify the best-fit level instrumentation for your application from a broad range of measuring principles and the associated portfolio of products.

Robust flow measurement

Flow measurement is fundamental for an efficient CIP system. By ensuring a strong turbulent flow, the desired scrubbing effect is reached.

Our expertise in the field

The Promag H line is designed to handle the aggressive chemicals at elevated temperatures and higher than normal vibration due to turbulent flow. Endress+Hauser ensure performance for many years in CIP service. The meters also include a temperature and conductivity output in addition to flow value.

Cost saving temperature measurement

Temperature within the CIP process can be found at several locations and is closely controlled to ensure balance of the effectiveness of the cleaning and energy consumption. Often seen as a critical control point, temperature needs frequent calibration.
