Ten Commandments

TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR CIP DESIGN

  • Always remember that water runs downhill ...
  • ... and that it is easier to pump water into a tank, than to pump it out.
  • Pitch tank CIPR connections continuously to pump inlet.
  • Design to close all valves against flow.
  • Avoid 3-port divert valves like the common plague.
  • Keep tank head nozzles few in number, short in length, and large in diameter, for they are not easy to clean.
  • Locate CIP systems in (near) and (when possible) beneath the center of CIP loads
  • Eliminate all "Dead Ends" (branches of more than 1-1/2 pipe diameters) for they will trouble You forever.
  • Pitch all lines to easily opened drain points.
  • Design and install supports to eliminate "friendly" piping that waves when starting pumps and opening and closing valves, for friendly systems are short-lived.
