Without a validation, my basic rule of thumb would be that whatever your sanitation interval is good for if you were to run continuously, that's how long the equipment stays "clean".
E.g. if you were to run continuously out of a tank for one shift before requiring it to be sanitized, then a sanitize event is good for one shift.
