What are the chemicals used in CIP in Biotech processwhat are there mode of action?
A basic cleaner is the most important CIP cleaning chemical, and is used for removing fats and proteins. The most common ones are Potassium Hydroxide and Sodium Hydroxide. A base wash is often followed by an acid wash to remove minerals and to neutralize the base (the acid washes away with water more easily than the base does). Common acid cleaners in the biotech industry include Phosphoric Acid, Acetic Acid, and Citric Acid.
