Manual Cleaning A 100 Gallon Mixer

Q: We are looking for detergent and process recommendations for manual cleaning of a 100 gallon mixer. We make one product in the mixer which contains water, modified food starch, acidic buffers, sucralose and preservative. Currently when cleaning, we boil for 1 hour at 90°C, then cool, drain and soak in cool water while using the mixing blades.  Scrub brushes and a spray hosing follows that. The mixer is made from stainless steel.

Cleaning Vitamin Residues

Q. We manufacture vitamins, which include minerals (calcium, magnesium etc.) and have found that Citranox is very effective in cleaning the residue left in our equipment. Unfortunately, we have learned that the pH of Citranox is too low for our local requirements. Do you have another detergent with a higher pH that would work equally as well?

Removing Protein in Pharmaceutical and Biotech Manufacturing

Q. How do you remove protein out of pipes, centrifuges and tanks in a CIP environment with water temperatures averaging 20C?

A. In a cooler temperature environment, consider adding an enzymatic cleaner to your alkaline/acidic CIP routine. A product like Tergazyme® Enzyme-Active Powdered Detergent, which contains both protease and surfactants, is not only efficient at removing the biofilm, but will also slow down the formation of biofilm and allow the regular cleaning cycle to clean effectively for more cycles.
