Hi. Anyone who knows what are the microbiological limits for rinse water in tanks (CIP) and what are the references? Thank you.

Hi Rener De Jesus,

 

A commonly applied test is to determine the presence of micro-organisms in the final flush water, but in this respect, it is important to realise that micro-organisms will usually always be present in mains and bore hole water supplies. The total count of potable water should not exceed 100 cfu/ml (colony forming units) with the absence of coliforms and E.coli in 100ml.

It is therefore necessary to analyse the flush water for any increase in micro-organisms during passage through the plant.

PS - the micro. limits above are probably derived from EC Directive 98/83/EC.


Kind Regards,
