Cleaning Services for freshwater generators

Keeping the plates of your freshwater generator as clean as possible is essential to optimizing performance. Alfa Laval Cleaning-In-Place (CIP) protects your freshwater generator with no equipment dismantling, thus saving valuable time for your crew.

What we do

The CIP unit is a system for removing scale in the evaporator section and fouling in the condenser section of your Alfa Laval freshwater generator. CIP restores optimal production of fresh water without the need for dismantling and with minimal use of cleaning chemicals. The fully automated cleaning process, which takes between 4 and 6 hours, eliminates time-consuming manual cleaning by your crew.
