How Brewery CIP Tank Works and What Chemicals Is It Compatible With?


As we all know, sanitary brewing tank and fermentation tank are very necessary for good beer.

So how we keep tanks sanitary? 

For brewman, we often use portable brewery CIP to keep tanks sanitary 

for nanobrewery and micro brewery system.


The portable brewery CIP cart is designed for cleaning and sterilization of the brewing tanks, 

fermenter and brite tank. The CIP unit is composed of two tanks(caustic tank and sterilization tank), 

one pump, one control cabinet and portable cart. 

Some brewers in bigger brewery also requires a hot water tank for brewery CIP system. 

For Pico brewery, a portable CIP pump is also workable. 

A clean environment is the foundation of beer fermentation. 

So the usage of the CIP cart is very important and basal.
