PCS 7 Unit Template "CIP - Cleaning in Place"
Taking a closer look at a food or pharmaceutical producing facility and its engineering processes, we will find that certain process steps, procedures, and devices will repeat in the same or similar form.
An important process in this regard is automated cleaning of equipment and machine parts. This process gains more importance with increasing facility size, since manual cleaning is no longer possible. One efficient procedure is the “Cleaning in Place” procedure, briefly CIP procedure.
The CIP procedure facilitates on-site cleaning of equipment and machine parts. Disassembly is not required. This type of automated cleaning also saves valuable working time.
The “CIP” unit template was realized as a SIMATIC PCS 7 multi-project in accordance with ISA S88.01.
The multi-project includes an AS project (user program), an OS project (visualization with process images), and a SIMATIC BATCH facility (production and cleaning recipes).
The AS project was created with Advanced Process Library (APL), BRAUMAT Library, and SIMATIC BATCH modules.
Using this procedure has the following advantages:
- Reduction of required know-how for developing the application
- Reduction of time and effort required for configuration
- Identification of typical controlling strategies
- Standardized structures
- Flexible setup through the use of technical functions
