2-day course CIP - Innovative cleaning techniques


  • At Christeyns 182 Afrikalaan Gent, Vlaanderen, 9000 Belgium (map)

Burggraaf & Partners has prepared a two-day course Cleaning in Place for producers and equipment suppliers in Food, Feed and Pharma. It includes all new automatic cleaning systems, not only for pipes and tanks but also the automatic cleaning of open systems such as conveyor belts, filling machines or other equipment. Robot-CIP or r-CIP is the future. In this way you can not only save on total cleaning costs (and down-time), but it is also the only way to guarantee that you can start with clean equipment.

Location: Gent (B)
Date: Wednesday 26 & Thursday 27 June 2019
Time: 09.00 – 17.00
Costs: € 1.290,- (excl. VAT)
Trainer: Wouter Burggraaf, Msc, member of EHEDG, authorised trainer
