CIP/SIP

 

CIP/SIP as one of main challenges of the process industry

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies offers highly resistant materials that reliably withstand demanding CIP/SIP media and processes.

CIP/SIP (Cleaning In Place/ Sterilization In Place) is a common process in the food and beverage industry. Its key advantage is a fully automatic cleaning process that eliminates the need for disassembling equipment and machine parts – and for a final visual inspection. But CIP/SIP requires special components that withstand cleaning media and high temperatures.

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies offers seals made of special materials suited to these conditions. They are highly resistant to aggressive cleaning agents based on acids, lye and peroxide as well as high temperatures (steam as high as +284 F).

Freudenberg Sealing Technologies also has screw systems and other components that are free of dead space. They ensure that no cleaning agents or other external substances can collect and/or encourage the growth of microbes – for example, under screws or seals – in a machine with direct contact to food or beverages.
