Eudragit NE 30 D Coating Pan


Detergent used: Chematic NE/NM 

The Challenge: 

The current cleaning process is inefficient, timely and costly. The inefficient process is labor intensive that takes 8-16 hours, uses power washing and manual scrubbing, the residue peels and forms balls that clog perforations, multiple vairables produce scheduling conflicts and inconsistent cleaning, and uses water temperatures of 70C-80C.


The Solution: 

Utilize Chematic NE/NM detergent to create a more efficient process. Using Chematic RL/RS we hope to achieve:

  • Dissolve Residue completely
  • Cleaning time reduced
  • Consistent clean time
  • Increase Safety
  • No Scrubbing
  • Validated State


The Results:

Using Chematic NE/NM detergent reduced the cleaning time by 75% (2 hours vs 8 hours). Utilized CIP process and used minimal manual labor that resulted in safer operations. Used a mild alkaline detergent that dissolved the residue that eliminated clogging, and decreased the temperature to 50C-60C (38%).
