Is Hotter Really Better?
It is a common belief that hotter is better when it comes to the critical cleaning of equipment. While this is true in some circumstances, there are times when hotter temperatures hinder cleaning, especially when working with highly pigmented products.
Whether the cleaning method is Clean In Place (CIP) or Clean Out of Place (COP), cleaning engineers complain about hazes left behind on their stainless steel tanks. Any haze leftover after a cleaning will cause production downtime, re-cleaning, and unwanted audits. We recently discussed best practices for removing hazes left behind on equipment by products containing the pigment titanium dioxide, such as lotions and sunscreens. Here we focus on a common misconception around cleaning temperatures for highly pigmented products, such as foundation makeup.
This video displays an example of the importance of cleaning your equipment with the right temperature and correct detergent. Allowing you to focus on what really matters... making quality product.
