The science of cleaning in place, illustrated by cleaning by impinging jets
The first webinar of the SIG was given by Ian Wilson, Professor of soft solid and surfaces at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, University of Cambridge.
Sinner's Circle is widely quoted in the cleaning-in-place literature, stating that Temperature, Time, Mechanical Action (Flow) and Chemistry all play a role in determining the effectiveness of a cleaning programme. This technical webinar will explain the chemical engineering and fluid mechanics principles involved in applying Sinner's Circle to a CIP operation, using the example of cleaning tanks by impinging liquid jets.
This webinar will be interesting for people involved with design, installation and operation of food process plant and quality assurance, who wish to know more about the engineering principles involved and the impact of factors such as detergent type and concentration relative to fluid flow velocity and temperature. While related mainly to food applications, the principles are equally relevant for other industries such as pharmaceuticals where product hygiene is critical.
This webinar was co-organised with the IChemE Food and Drink SIG.
