CIP Systems

Hysysco Integrated CIP Systems SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY!

If you’ve come to this part of our website on purpose, you will already know that “CIP” is short for “Clean In Place”, and is a critical requirement for any food or beverage processing facility.

Whether you’re an artisan producer who cleans some of your processing equipment by hand, or if you’re involved in a larger organisation that already has CIP systems you will be looking for at least one of the following:

  • Improving your plant hygiene by automating your cleaning routines;
  • Improving your production efficiency by reducing the amount of time spent dismantling equipment to clean it;
  • Reducing the time your current CIP system takes to effectively carry out a clean;
  • Being able to prove to new and existing customers that your process is cleaned effectively;
  • Reducing the amount of money you currently spend on cleaning chemicals and water.

Complete Solution

Hysysco CIP systemHysysco specialise in providing a complete turnkey CIP system solution.

We design our CIP systems around bought-in components from a range of specific suppliers based on the best match of performance versus cost to meet every individual situation.

We build our CIP systems in-house, often manufacturing our own tanks and using pumps, valves and instrumentation from a wide range of proprietary manufacturers such as Alfa Laval, SPX, GEA, Endress + Hauser, LTH, IFM and others.

Alternatively, if you already have preferred suppliers for specific items of plant and equipment, we can usually work with these suppliers to provide an integrated solution to meet your needs.

Once we’ve installed and commissioned your Hysysco CIP system, our partner company Hysyscare can provide ongoing aftercasre and support in the form of spare parts and hands-on service support. We can also provide remote technical support via the Internet in order to give you real-time diagnostic and fault-finding reports.

Flexibility and More…

Hysysco CIP systems can be designed mechanically to be either single channel or multiple channel units, with two/three or four tanks, caustic and/or acid dosing, and either fully automatic, semi-automatic or manual.

Our CIP systems can be designed to conform to meet a wide variety of food and retail industry standards and can be customer manufactured to fit the available space.

In addition to designing and building the CIP system itself, Hysysco can assist with your wider plant cleaning.

We can troubleshoot existing processes to improve the cleanability of the pipe work, vessels and fittings and then carry out improvements using our team of skilled pipe-fitters and welders.

We can also design and install double-seat valve routing to allow you to clean idle parts of your process whilst other parts are in full production.

In short, if you want to improve your CIP, Hysysco can help. Call us on 01427 613942 or contact us to see how we can help.

Control and Automation

All our CIP systems include some form of control panel, from a simple digital chart recorder for recording basic data to full touch-screen, SCADA systems which give complete control over parameters and functions such as times, temperatures, detergent strengths and flow rates.

The control systems can also be linked to external data storage and handling systems if required.

Typical clean running


Because we keep our manufacturing base lean and mean, our CIP systems are surprisingly affordable, particularly when your new, custom built system will start saving you time and money from the day it’s commissioned.

If you’re interested in either upgrading your own process CIP systems, or your business is having to consider acquiring an integrated CIP system for the first time and you just want an idea of costs, then why not give us a call on 01427 613942 to talk through your requirements.

Hysysco have 30 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of Clean In Place (CIP) systems for food and beverage processing industries. We’ve refined the system to offer the best combination of functionality, flexibility and value for money.


Just a word (or several words) on second hand CIP systems.

There are a lot of them out there and they sometimes come up for sale at auction or through private deals. Some can appear to be fairly shiny and modern, but “Buyer Beware” as behind that shiny exterior can lurk a multitude of hidden horrors!

If you’re thinking of buying a second hand CIP system then thoroughly check the following before you commit your hard earned cash:

  • Will the installed and commissioned price of a second hand unit, without any guarantees, work out higher than that of a new unit with full manufacturer’s warranty? After the cost of purchase, any buyer’s premium, disconnection, dismantling, loading, hauling, refurbishing and re-commissioning have been factored in, you might be surprised by the answer. New CIP sets can be a lot less expensive than you think.
  • Are the existing tanks structurally sound? Hot caustic and acid solutions play havoc with poor quality stainless steel welding so if the tanks appear to be leaking at all, then factor in the cost of replacing the tanks with new.
  • Are the tanks square or rectangular? Although many old tanks (and some new ones) were built on a square base, this was done to keep costs down, and not to improve performance. Be aware that many of the larger retailers have their own specifications for CIP systems that will not accept square CIP tanks.
  • Does all the instrumentation work? CIP systems only function effectively if all the instrumentation that they were designed with is not only working, but also correctly calibrated. Factor in the cost of replacing some of the conductivity probes, flow meters, temperature sensors or at the very least having all the instruments calibrated and certified.
  • Does the inside of the control panel look like a bag of knitting? The cost of rewiring an existing control panel will often exceed that of a completely new panel. So once again, ask yourself the question do you really want to spend thousands of pounds on a new control panel for an obsolete CIP system?
  • If the system includes a PLC and/or HMI, are these units current and maintainable or are they obsolete? If you have to replace either, the costs will be significant.
  • If the CIP system is PLC controlled, do the existing cleaning programmes meet your own Cleaning In Place requirements? If not, can the existing programmes be edited easily? Do you have someone who can re-write the programmes for you cost effectively.
