Thermoforming machine offers a new design to simplify and accelerate the cleaning process for food processors. The first model, the R535, is equipped with an integrated Clean-in-Place (CIP) system that automates the cleaning of component groups inside the machine. After a pre-cleaning, a cleaning program can be started at the push of a button, which can be controlled from the central control system. The standardized, logged process ensures adherence to predetermined cleaning cycles and dosages/mixtures of sanitizing chemicals. Exterior cleaning is executed manually with an attached spray gun, and is also integrated into the CIP procedure for process control. The R535 is available in 2008, with successive models rolling out in the following months.
