CIP - Innovative cleaning techniques (Dutch)

2-day course

2-day course Cleaning in Place for the producers and machine builders in Food, Feed and Pharma.

date: 17 April 2023
price: 1475.00

It covers all new automatic cleaning systems, not only pipes and tanks, but also automatic cleaning of open systems such as conveyor belts, filling machines or other equipment. Robot-CIP or r-CIP is the future. In this way you can not only save on the total cleaning costs (and down-time), but it is also the only way to guarantee that you can start with clean equipment.
