Hot Clean-In-Place (CIP) sanitization is commonly used to combat microbial growth in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries. Performed frequently as a prevention strategy, hot water sanitization is a requirement for high purity water (HPW) for United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.).
Hot CIP subjects the contactor to material stress and high temperature influences. The following Technical Brief provides guidelines for correctly performing hot sanitization with 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors.
