Central States Industrial (CSI) is an innovation leader in equipment and services for the food, dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries. CSI, headquartered in Springfield, Missouri, has more than 160 employees at five facilities across the United States.
CSI distributes a wide range of sanitary processing equipment and installation materials. From fittings, tubing, and hangers to advanced pumping and heat transfer technology, they are prepared to supply whatever their customers need for their process.
Clean-in-place (CIP) is a method of cleaning sanitary process lines, vessels, and equipment commonly used in process plants. The process of CIP involves passing a cleaning fluid across a surface to remove product soils.
Manual cleaning prevents consistency and repeatability, regardless of how rigorously it’s performed. Automated processes alleviate this type of error and neglect by allowing the computer to perform a set of instructions at specified levels the same way every time.
CSI needed to create a truly automated CIP system for budget-conscious customers, that is able to meet parameters and achieve cleaning requirements while remaining affordable, functional, mobile, and compact.
