Clean-Out-of-Place Tank

When I was first approached by an employee about purchasing a new COP tank, I wasn’t sure what she meant. I did a bit of research and found out that COP stands for Clean-Out-of-Place. Frequently, COP immersion washers are used by pharmaceutical and biotech processing facilities.

A COP immersion tank is really a washer with a turbulent circulation system. Techs place dirty parts into the tank and the currents thoroughly wash the interior and exterior of the parts. COP tanks are especially useful for cleaning small parts where human hands might not fit for a thorough scrubbing.

CIP System

CIP (Clean In Place) Systems automatically control equipment washing. We offer a wide variety of systems, from 1-4 tanks with 50-3,000+ gallons. Skid features heavy-duty stainless steel construction with glass bead finish & adjustable ball feet. Koss is a UL listed 508A Panel Shop: #E330004, our Panel Boxes constructed to NEMA4 specifications. Allen Bradley controls standard with 10 included wash programs.
