CIP Skid System

Initially, our client came to us for a Clean In Place (CIP) scavenge pump for a client’s new installation. The pump had to be capable of 250 l/min through 20m of 2 ½” pipe. The fluid that was being pumped was softened water with detergent at 60°C from washing systems.

During conversations about the pump, Tapflo UK Ltd were able to provide our client with a complete turnkey cip skid system that included a drip tray, custom panel integrated with the local control system.

CIP Skid Solution & Support offered bespoke cip skid system built by Tapflo UK

We provided our customer with a custom-built CIP (Clean in place) skid system shown on the right. This incorporates a custom drip tray with a drain port and adjustable hygienic feet, hygienic risers for the pump and support for a control panel & the thermosyphon.

Overall Dimensions: 1000mm x 450mm x 2000mm (L x W x H)

The customer had 20m of 2 ½” pipework which is the drain pipework for a series of their wash systems. There are 4 separate machines that this will pump from. The pump needed to be self-priming because the liquid is from a drain, therefore we were able to provide a pump with a liquid tank on the front to ensure that the impeller is always covered with water, allowing the pump to self-prime up to 4m vertical.

Due to the temperatures involved and for the longevity of the system a thermosyphon was included to continually flush the mechanical seal with cold water, this helps to keep the seal temperature down as well as remove small fragments of dirt or grit that could get in and cause damage to the seal.

To enable draining of the pump head for maintenance we included some hygienic feet for the pump which mount directly to the skid and ensure that the pump is stable. The pump head reservoir has a drain point on the underside as well as an air vent port on the top to assist in priming the casing during installation and commissioning.

Our technical team went to the site once installed to ensure that the pump was installed correctly and to fix any minor issues that arrive from testing in situ.
