Cleaning lines and tanks in brewery

Unread postby WD40 » Mon Oct 22, 2018 9:19 am

I need a sanity check. I planned to clean tanks (with CIP balls) and lines in a brewery with:

1. Empty lines and tanks with compressed air to sewer
2. Cycle clean water through lines and tanks for 10min to do rinsing
3. Empty lines and tanks with compressed air to sewer
4. Cycle 10% sodium-water mixture through lines and tanks for 10min to do actual cleaning
5. Empty lines and tanks with compressed air to sodium tank
6. Cycle 10% citric acid - water mixture through lines and tanks for 10min to remove sodium gluey from inner surfaces
7. Empty lines and tanks with compressed air to citric tank
8. Cycle star san - water mixture through lines and tanks for 5min to sanitate and remove citric acid residues
9. Empty lines and tanks with compressed air to star san -tank

After 5 cleanups change sodium, citric acid and star san tank fluids

I planned to do this automatically with PLC. Time is 30min and I think it _should_ do the job.

Is there something u would do different or cheaper?
