Equipment We Can Provide and Install

We’re able to supply free-standing, skid mounted and even mobile CIP systems, with skid mounted solutions typically being the go-to choice for most businesses. 

They are designed to allow the main components to be secured to one common stainless steel frame, enabling the system to be pre-piped and wired. 

One of the key benefits of this approach is that it allows the full pre-testing of the unit prior to dispatch and greatly minimises site time during installation. This not only results in time and cost savings, but makes it easier for you to relocate the system in the future if required.

Our bespoke CIP solutions range from single tank systems to multi tank, multi channel machines.

  • Single tank system
  • Two tank system
  • Multi tank system
  • Multi channel system

Do You Need Clean In Place Equipment?

CIP cleaning systems are an important part of any modern food, beverage and dairy processing facility. They automatically clean the internal processing equipments on a production line, meaning there’s no need to remove parts and clean them manually.

Their use is widespread because they offer so many advantages, which we’ll cover below. Although CIP cleaning systems aren’t a legal requirement, they make it much easier to meet any relevant hygiene standards, which is partly why they’re used in so many different industries. From milk and dairy to cosmetics and chemical processing facilities, a wide range of companies use CIP cleaning systems to their advantage.

If you’re looking to scale up your production output and take your facility to the next level, investing in a bespoke CIP system from S4 Engineering is a great way to do exactly that.

Benefits of Clean in Place Systems

Our clean in place equipment provides fast, efficient, hygienic cleaning of plant equipment, with minimal use of chemicals, energy and water – improving sustainability and keeping operating costs to a minimum.

The benefits of clean in place systems really cannot be overstated. Not only can they help you meet hygiene requirements much more easily, they allow you to significantly streamline your processes. With less human intervention required to keep your pipework, vessels and equipment clean, downtime can be kept to a minimum – and output can increase.

These improvements in efficiency naturally result in an improvement in your bottom line. Clean in place systems can deliver a significant return on investment in the long run, improving the profitability of your operation.

Efficiency, hygiene, sustainability… CIP systems really can make a significant difference to your business.
