AECO-CIP: Plug & Play Systems

Recovery and Reuse of CIP liquid

In-process recovery solutions are crucial to achieving the increasingly demanding environmental requirements to create a more sustainable way of operating beverage plants.

The Nijhuis AECO-CIP recovery unit is a plug & play packaged recovery system to treat spent CIP solutions (i.e., hot soda based). While the CIP agents and heat remain in the recovered stream, the organic fouling, solids, and part of the inorganic soluble content will be captured by special membranes and concentrated prior to disposal. The system can be applied for both caustic, acid, and enzymatic CIP solutions. Typical hydraulic recovery of 75 to 90% can be achieved.

We offer modular expanded packaged plants with capacities between 100 to over 2600 gph. In order to determine the best economical and sustainable solution, we also offer our i-CONSULT laboratory services to investigate your specific situation.
