thanks for writing in . .

 

coming to context, it is dry process where we use single raw material . .we do Raw material storage, dry production process, product storage, filling and dispatch.According to that please suggest standard procedures for cleaning operations.

Dear Satyanarayana,

 

Well, most people seem to use vacuum but i guess you knew that already ?

 

There are a few other threads here on dry cleaning here but I don't see any specific procedures detailed, in contrast a variety of examples exist for wet methods which usually involve choosing the detergent / sanitizer and the frequency of implementing the SOP for various locations. One "dry" thread is here -

 

http://www.ifsqn.com...elp/#entry78234

 

The frequency is empirically based on a qualitative risk assessment which will relate to yr detailed product /process. And possibly the Standard you will be audited to (if any).

 

Hopefully some users of dry cleaning may see yr post shortly.

 

Rgds / Charles.C

 

PS - You might try a little searching for "dry cleaning".

In terms of sanitation of any specific piece of equipment you need to look at a couple of things:

 

1. What soil are you trying to remove, in the case of the silo storing a bulk material. 

 

2. Determine what soil you are aiming to remove and that will guide you to the process you need to use. Look at the charactistics of the soil, is it biological or physical.  Is it wet or is it dry, etc.

From a general POV, Yes, I agree.

Hi Satyanarayana,

 

With respect to your concern for the safety of individuals entering a silo or other confined space, you are to be commended. Attached is a document from the prime occupational safety authority here in the USA . The many hazards or confined space are discussed, from which you may glean the icapplable hazards and precautions to address in your specific circumstance. I have entered many dairy product silos myself for cleaning and inspection; the precautions I would highlight most especially are these:

 

  • In the event the cleaning and sanitizing solutions and processes give off fumes, aerosols or particulates, the atmosphere should be addressed for adequate ventilation and exhausting. In a confined space, even the use of hot water may allow heat and moisture to become excessive.
  • Against the possible event that a person may go unconscious for unforeseen causes, precaution should be taken to harness and tether the entrant in such a manner that they may be safely pulled out of the confined space.
  • Precaution for the electical integrity and safety of any electrical cords or devices against electrocution should be taken.
  • Precaution to assign a faithful spotter who will not abandon the confined space entrant.
  • Precaution to contravene any potential release of hazardous energy, e.g., the accidental actuation of an agitator.

With respect to cleaning, unless I missed the point in the thread; one must consider not only the nature of the soils to be cleaned, but also the materials of construction. My experience is all with stainless steel silos which can withstand many categories of harsh chemicals, for cleaning, passivation and sanitation, but mild steel, painted or coated surfaces or masonry may require careful selection of the appropriate cleaning chemicals. It will be important not to leave any residual cleaning chemicals or to use an odorous cleaner that could taint the stored products.

 

Kind regards

To complement what xylough has said, here is a document that was prepared by someone in India, using information from India, the US and Canada.  It is a nice summary of what you can do to protect workers.

And don't forget to consider fall hazards, which are not mentioned in most confined space information.  That's another safety issue to consider, since many silos are entered from some height, which requires you to consider the possibility of people falling.

 

And if a respirator or SCBA is going to be used, then you usually have a different regulation to tell you how to deal with that issue.

 

Here is a link to the Indian standard for respiratory protection.
