1. Aside from cost issues, what are the pros/cons of using stainless steel pipes vs copper pipes for a CIP system? The pipes will be used to transport water, cleaner and sanitizer into a tank.
2. Are there other types of pipes that would meet food safety requirements that are not copper or stainless, that would be resistant to the cleaner and sanitizer (teflon?)?
I don't have any idea what is best to use, so any insight, experience or options you can send my way would be greatly appreciated.
