Almost every food production factory uses CIP-cleaners (Clean-in-place) for cleaning the inner surfaces of technological equipment without dismantling the closed system. The cleaning process is one of the most expensive technological processes, therefore its optimization significantly affects increase of the efficiency of production process as a whole.
CIP Expert. CIP process monitoring and analytics system
The current version of the software is the 3rd generation. We develop our software product by expanding and supplementing its functionality based on current production requirements. Close proximity to the customer allows us to refine the solution, adapting it to the different needs of our customers.
The CIP Expert MES-module has been developed for end-to-end monitoring, quality analysis and efficiency evaluation of the CIP-processes.
What are the benefits of implementing this solution?
Saving water, solutions, concentrates, energy, time
Guaranteed cleanliness of equipment — a guarantee of product quality
Paperless process control
Control of operator actions — minimum errors and unplanned interventions
CIP Expert functionality:
Monitoring of all CIP processes in all loops / stations / plants;
Centralized data collection about the enterprises of the holding and its transfer to ERP;
Automatic report forming for the chosen period / phase / step / washing incidents;
Validation of washes by deviations from the reference washes / passport values / settings from the APCS;
Investigation of incidents by the system 5 Why?
In integration with the CheckLists module — microbiological condition control and operating status control of technological equipment;
Individual MES modules help to optimize individual processes in process manufacturing. In combination, the modules can offer additional functionality.
CIP Expert — recording of cleanings in relation to the technological equipment
CheckList — running routine inspections of technological equipment and checking compliance with specifications
CIP Expert — recording of cleanings, consumption and application of working solutions
Lab&Tracea — recording of concentrate batches, pumping, consumption
Lab&Trace — batch transfer of products, laboratory control of physical and chemical parameters of products
CIP Expert — control of cleanliness of equipment used in the production process
CheckLists — control of compliance with technological parameters during the process
LMS ОЕЕ — efficiency of filling equipment operation
Energo — efficiency of production equipment operation in terms of energy consumption (water, electricity, steam, etc.)
CIP Expert — efficiency of cleaning processes
The module in its different versions has already been implemented at several breweries and dairy plants:
