Automated cleaning systems are often used for tanks in food industry. These systems, consisting of tank and cleaner, must be designed in such a way that their cleanability is ensured. Nevertheless, design support tools for automated tank cleaning systems hardly exist. Within this project, a time-resolved analysis of the cleaning performance of a representative selection of tank cleaning systems will be carried out. The results of the cleaning tests should provide first indications in regard to questions like:
If it is possible to deduce constructive design aids from the project results, they will be summarized in a technical bulletin.
