Just looking for some advise, help, pointed in the right direction. I have been employed for a handful off months at a dairy plant that has 4 CIP units. These units are different brands as they were purchased second hand, that I was told. These units have been poorly cared for. These units also have been frankinstiened, adulterated,hacked, mutilated and beyond. Items missing, meters, probes, gauges and such. Chemical Concentrations done manually on two units, the rest with injection pumps. Which brings me to my question.
Slowly with my arrival attention is finally given. My experience level with CIP units is a 5 out 10. 10 being very experienced. I would like to know where / what points of the system were I can pull tritration samples from to verify if we are in range for cleaning chemicals and especially the sanitizer. At the moment we are expericing issues with concentration levels for the sanitizer as it is jumping all over in ranges. What are the best locations or time to take samples from?
I will be greatfull for anyone to share some light as well maybe a small refresher on the basics of CIP 101 on tritration locations or any verfication insight. Any info would help..
