Skid-based, steam-heated cleaning-in-place (CIP) kit eliminates laborious manual tasks

Kensey Foods, part of the Samworth Brothers group, which makes chilled desserts such as custard tarts, banana splits, and apple turnovers for Tesco, has installed a new cleaning-in-place (CIP) system to meet increased production demands.

Carlisle Process Systems (CPS), which had installed the original CIP equipment at Kensey's bakery in Launceston in Cornwall, won the contract. A variation on a standard CIP unit was designed, which was then skid-mounted and fitted with Telemechanique controls.

The new kit, comprising a fully automated steam-heated system which meets current legislative demands as well as those set by the supermarkets, replaced an electrically-heated system using manual routing valves.

Hygiene operator Nick Howes says: "The new CIP set in our cream department has taken a lot of manual time-consuming tasks away from operators, leaving them free to do other jobs. It is a user-friendly system and all the relevant information is displayed clearly on the touch screen."
