Image Number 9 for United States Patent #6161558.
A portable clean-in-place apparatus for a batch processing system. The present invention provides a clean-in-place system on a movable frame adapted to move about a batch processing facility such as a dairy, brewery, pharmaceutical plant, or the like, and clean any or all portions of the batch processing system. Since the CIP system is provided on a movable frame, it can be moved without requiring fixed piping to and from the batch processing line, and since it is relatively small in dimension, it can fit through a standard size doorway to facilitate storage. Moreover, through appropriately sizing and orienting the equipment the apparatus is not only kept relatively small, but can be manufactured at a relatively low cost as well.
