PDA Portable CIP Teaching Skid

In February 2002 a consortium of suppliers of CIP equipment and services made a gift of a fully automated CIP skid capable of operation on single-phase 240V 50A service to automatically clean existing future vessels and a line circuit to be installed for teaching purposes. Features include:

  • CIPS at 20-40 Gpm and 15-25 Psi
  • Ability to use two different qualities of water
  • Fully automatic or manually controlled program advance
  • Electric HXR capable of heating 15-20 gallons 1-1/2 -2C/minute
  • Automated Venturi Chemical Feed for Alkali and Acid
  • Sensors for flow, pressure, temperature, conductivity & resistivity


The 2011 PDA Demonstration System is VERY CAPABLE and “STATE OF THE ART” in APPLICATION of Automation!

The PDA-TRI Mini-CIP skid was fabricated by Electrol Specialties Company.

ESC supplied the custom fabricated water tank and control enclosure, contributed gifts including the  chart recorder, turbine meter, flow control valve, RTD, sanitary tubing and fittings, and electrical HXR, and provided all labor & miscellaneous materials required for assembly, software development, and a full FAT procedure, and documentation.  This unit has been fabricated in accordance with the criteria in general use at that time, and in accordance with a design provided by Dale A. Seiberling in combination with a Gift to partially offset ESC costs.
