Plantextrakt GmbH & Co. KG
The production of demanding products in small batch sizes needs optimised processes
The implemented plant
Feeding big and small batches
Cleaning and control of the process unit
The four-tank CIP plant with two cleaning circuits is used for the process plants and the CIP stations of the mobile and plastic containers. The plant is expandable to four cleaning circuits. To achieve an optimal cleaning result for all plant components (heater, sterile tank and filler), a recipe administration is implemented. This allows for individual cleaning recipes for all product groups. Supervision and operation of the plant is done by an 19“ touch screen at the heater module and by PC in the control room. Both stations are designed identically to each other and help ease the use of operation by having the same look and functionality. For the food industry, the complete logging of all production steps forms an important quality management part. The batch logging software allows for a very fine tailoring to the needs of the user. At PLANTEXTRAKT, starting with the sterilisation programs, all status updates, alarms, operator input and select diagrams of the individual batches are filed together with the order number.
