We had this meeting yesterday regarding the used of RO Water for CIP flushing. Since we only have limited sources of RO water, the management suggested to use potable/chlorinated water instead of RO water during Clean-in-place final rinsing.
Are there any standards that really require to used RO water?
Would it be too risky to used such an alternative process?
In addition to chlorinated water as an alternative for flushing, we have subsequent step to ensure line cleanliness: Sterilization.
Any thoughts if these are enough to be compliant?
