The science of process cleaning is changing. Considerations for process cleaning and CIP now include much more than they did just a few years ago. Energy efficiency, water usage, waste reduction, and solids recovery have all begun to affect the design of process cleaning systems.

For any products that go into or on our bodies, the hygienic integrity of the product is naturally a concern. Because the science of food safety has evolved in the past century, the demand for adequate and consistent hygiene has never been higher. As scrutiny on hygiene continues to increase, other demands are placed on our cleaning processes far beyond time, temperature, titration, or turbulence.
