Conductivity meter for CIP systems

26 February 2018

To ensure food safety, production and filling facilities need to be cleaned regularly and this is usually carried out using an automated Clean-in-Place (CIP) system. 

For CIP systems optimum interaction of different physical parameters is critical. The exact concentration of cleaning agents – while taking into account flow rate, pressure, temperature and time – defines a reproducible process which demands systems and components which have the technical properties and flexibility to support CIP safely and cost-effectively. The CombiLyz conductivity meter from BAUMER offers a solution to help ensure optimum process control. It has an accuracy of ±1% and a measuring range of 500 µS/cm to 1000 mS/cm together with fast and accurate temperature compensation.

Thanks to its precise measurement capabilities it ensures that no more chemicals are used than is necessary, helping to minimise waste.

During the phase separation in the CIP return flow, the CombiLyz quickly recognises different media, even when temperatures fluctuate, helping to reduce the loss of stored cleaning agents. After one cleaning cycle, the CombiLyz accurately measures the concentration of the remaining chemicals in the rinse water. With this information, the PLC can control the predefined media circuits exactly and reliably using valve nodes and this reduces the risk of the food being contaminated by residual chemicals.

The hygienically designed sensing element can also be cleaned very easily which is confirmed by the EHEDG certification and conformity with 3-A standards.
