Application

In the pharmaceutical industry, cleaning of process equipment takes place within the framework of a validated "Clean in Place (CIP)" process to ensure aseptic conditions are maintained in production equipment, tanks and pipelines. Sodium hydroxide or concentrated acids are frequently used as cleaning agents, which are held in storage tanks within the CIP system. They are diluted in a premix vessel prior to use. Level measurement enables safe storage and optimal usage of these cleaning agents.
