Certa COP Options from MasoSine

Posted on by Sara Springer

Certa Pumps were designed for CIP (Clean-In-Place) operations, yet their design works so well for difficult transfer applications that many are being used in COP (Cleaning Out of Place) systems. However, using a Certa pump in COP applications can cause problems due to the design.

Seals can be dropped and break. The special tool for removing the locking screw can slip out of the screw quickly wearing down the surfaces and “stripping” the screw or tool. The nuts for the front housing cover take time to remove, especially when breaking the pump down multiple times a day.

Certa COP Options

In order to improve performance and reduce downtime for cleaning and maintenance in this area, MasoSine is offering several optional components for easier disassembly/assembly.


  • Clean Out of Place, COP, options to enable manual cleaning with your Certa Pump
  • Simplified pump design perfect for frequent disassembly and assembly
  • Retain all the benefits of Certa such as gentle product handling, ease of maintenance, high suction capability, and flexibility

What are the C.I.P. (Clean-in-Place) Best Practices for Your Process?

CIP can save time, materials and labor, which ultimately means money. Yet, while CIP has been around for a long time, it is much more prevalent outside of the US than in, which leaves a lack of experience and knowledge to go on, and it is not an exact science. Not even the Food and Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) contains any validation requirements for Clean-In-Place (CIP) procedures. This isn’t helping US companies as they look to implement CIP into their operations.

Here at Springer Pumps, our customers are showing a greater interest in CIP. While at the same time we are also seeing a bigger product focus on CIP from our vendors. While having both the interest and the products to support it are good, there are some hurdles to overcome when it comes to implementing CIP systems. The biggest of these is that there are no strict guidelines for CIP processes, not just in the US, but abroad.

So when customers ask us what the CIP procedures are for a given pump the answer is: It depends.

Broadly Outlined, a CIP Process Should Contain the Following Steps:

  1. Run a flush with clear water at full pump speed, with no back pressure, to clean out the majority of the process fluid.
  2. Run another flush with the cleaning fluid reaching a minimum velocity of 1.5 m/sec (5 ft/sec) and a differential pressure between the inlet and outlet of the pump of at least 2 bar / 29 psi.
  3. If necessary, run another flush using the sanitation fluid for the amount of time necessary to ensure proper system sanitization.
  4. Perform swab tests for high sanitation applications. Especially those with potential allergen issues.

The steps outlined above take TIME, and the time it takes depends on several factors, including:

  • Pump(s) used
  • Line sizes (inlet and discharge)
  • Process fluid/media/soil
  • Cleaning/Sanitation chemicals used
  • The temperature of the flush water

All of these are considered in light of the most important one: What is the end goal? Is it just a clean system, a sanitary system, or a system free from all contaminants including allergens?

Taken all together, these will give you an idea of what the basic parameters are for CIPing a given system. But that idea must be proven out through trials in actual production and refined from there.

While we cannot tell you what exactly it will take to CIP your systems and components, we will work with you to provide the correct type and size pumps to get the job done.

OpX Leadership Network has put together a detailed document on CIP processes and what is required for them, along with a video presentation they made from PACK EXPO with Caitlin Lucia, Senior Process Engineer at Campbell Soup Company. Some of the content for this article is from their paper and is used with permission.

You can schedule a call or meeting with us if you’re considering Clean-in-Place and need process pumps that are designed FOR CIP or a highly efficient Direct Contact Water Heating System.

SENTRY CIP Sanitary Flow Through Dampeners

Posted on by Sara Springer


Specially Designed Sanitary Pulsation Dampener from BLACOH

BLACOH SENTRY CIP DampenerBLACOH SENTRY CIP Dampeners have a seamless bladder that allows Clean-in-Place operations and features molded ends that act as the gasket for tri-clamp fittings. This eliminates product holdup and trapped particles. Pulsation dampeners reduce system damage caused by fluctuating pressures caused by pumps and smooths out flow for more accurate dosing, filling or coating. They work with any pump type and are particularly useful with AOD, EOD, Hose and Peristaltic Pumps.

Benefits of Surge Dampening:

  • Smooths out pulsations to increase accuracy and consistency of coating, filling and metering
  • Reduces strain on system piping, valves and other downstream equipment
  • SENTRY CIP Dampener can be fitted with USP Pharma-Grade Silicone or Food-Grade EPDM

Positive Displacement Pump Problems?

Posted on by Sara Springer

New Type of Positive Displacement Pump Solves Common Issues

Qts Gif Loop Red Balls

Positive displacement pumps are used successfully in a wide range of applications in almost every industry. Many of these applications, however, suffer from a wide range of problems common to pumps like rotary lobe, rotary piston and progressive cavity pumps. Whether it be cavitation, rotor-to-body contact, wear due to tight clearances and abrasive fluids, loud operating noise or frequent repairs due to axial deflection, these issues cause no end of headaches to the plant maintenance personnel that deal with them.

Enter in the QTS Twin Screw pump. Twin screw pumps solve many of these problems. Due to the inherent qualities of the pump design they rarely produce cavitation (low NPSH requirements), there is no body/rotor or rotor/rotor contact (even at high pressures), abrasive fluids don’t cause nearly as much wear, they operate at very low noise levels and have absolutely zero axial deflection. QTS Twin Screw pumps are the future of positive displacement pumping.


Contact us by phone, through EMAIL or SUBMIT A RFQ through our site today to find out how Springer Pumps can improve your process performance and your bottom line with a QTS pump today!

Additional QTS Series Features:

  • LOW Pulsation Flow
  • Bi-Directional Flow, Self-Priming in Both Directions
    • Low NPSH Requirements, Reduces Possibility of Cavitation
  • Fully Drainable, CIP-able Design
    • Can be used for Process CIP Pump, Eliminating the Need for Second Pump and Equipment
  • Extremely Low Shear, Gentle Product Handling
  • High-Speed Operation, Up to 3000 RPM
  • And More…
