  • Lower chemical usage and cost

Sanitary CIP systems often require special tanks, high purity valves and pumps, as well as high finish requirements. Pump selection is crucial to the functionality and cost-effectiveness of your CIP system. BMI’s expert team carefully reviews your unique requirements to ensure the best equipment is at the heart of your system. In order to optimize your CIP system, maximize production performance, minimize system maintenance and ensure your cleaning parameters are met with each cycle, the following factors must be considered:

  • The placement of the CIP system relative to the equipment being cleaned
  • The potential to remove and recover product
  • The turbulence of the cleaning fluid
  • The viscosity of the product and amount of oil in the product
  • The precision of flow and pressure required
  • The chemicals used and the concentration of the chemicals
  • The temperatures required
  • The time required
  • The waiting time between hot and cold CIP
  • Custom fabrication
  • BMI fabrication services include
  • The benefits of pre-fabrication

Our shop-fabricated systems are custom-made to include utility support and meet your specific needs while reducing labor costs and downtime. All systems comply with relevant 3-A, ASME, FDA, OSHA, UL, and USDA standards.

  • Modular, mobile and integrated skids
  • Structural steel assemblies, walkways, access platforms and pipe racks
  • Stainless-steel lines, fittings and valves
  • Complete design and process engineering including electrical, control instrumentation, programming, and utility drawings
  • Precision fabrication, including all elements necessary to integrate as a system component or operate as a stand-alone unit
  • PLC/PAC programming and testing
  • HMI/SCADA application development and testing
  • Factory testing, including Factory Acceptance Test (FAT)
  • Installation, equipment rigging, setting, and leveling

The main benefit to is the increased speed of implementation. We design, fabricate and pre-test process and utility skids in our fabrication shop which minimizes plant disruption. This leads to an expedited project timeline and lower overall project costs.
