Automated Clean-in-Place (CIP) system for lyophilizers reduces water consumption by up to 75 percent. The system takes full advantage of the movement of the shelf stack to clean the chamber walls, the instrument and service connection ports, the chamber-condenser isolation valve and the slot door by a sweep water jet effect. In addition, the cleaning cycle is comprised of several independent steps to reduce the required capacity of the impulsion pump and thereby reduce water consumption. The system has been optimized to minimize the retained volume of water while in ‘recirculation’ mode and to reduce the spraying time in ‘once-through’ mode. The new design also minimizes the distribution system internal to the equipment and significantly reduces the number of spray nozzles and consequently the water flow rate.
