Did You Automate Spring Cleaning?

KOSS 3 Tank Dual CIP System
KOSS 3 Tank Dual CIP System

Do you have the four basic ingredients needed to achieve a sanitary level of cleanliness when you are Cleaning-in-Place

  1. Time is at a premium, but cutting wash time too short may result in a less-than-sanitary clean.
  2. Temperature must be carefully controlled; not too high, not too low, and specific per the wash cycle needs.
  3. Flow needs to be at a high enough velocity to effectively scour clean those pesky fats & oils (or whatever your dirt may be).
  4. Solution won’t help anything if it’s too weak, ensure your alkaline and acid solutions are at the proper strength to function.

If you worry that your system might not be meeting one or more of these needs, contact KOSS.  You can trust in our experience.  We can modify, repair, and refurbish equipment & systems.  If you’re looking to improve an existing system or considering implementing a new CIP System, we’d love to hear from you – Koss Industrial, Inc. can help you innovate & optimize.
