    CIP and SIP units

    Arrgos - Zentrifugen und Anlagenbau - CIP- und SIP-Einheiten

    The design and manufacture of Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) equipment is a complex process that requires extensive technical skills. CIPs are automated cleaning systems used in the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries to clean production equipment in place without having to disassemble it.

    Arrgos - Zentrifugen und Anlagenbau - CIP- und SIP-Einheiten

    Arrgos designs and builds CIP equipment with the following features:

    • Compliance with standards and regulations related to food safety, quality and reliability. Arrgos has extensive knowledge of applicable standards and is able to integrate them into the design and manufacture of CIP equipment.
    • Control and automation systems: process sensors allow the monitoring of cleaning cycles. They ensure efficient and automated cleaning on site, from the first rinse in the solvent channel to the final rinse with conductivity measurement.
    • Materials: On-site cleaning and sterilization involves the use of aggressive chemicals at high temperatures. Proper selection of materials for transporting sodium hydroxide, acids and steam is critical to ensure reliable operation throughout the life of the system.
    • Fixed or rotating nozzles and spray heads: these essential elements of CIP and SIP equipment in tanks and production plants are key components when sizing equipment.
    • Piping: Attention to detail in the design and manufacturing quality of piping is critical to the efficient transport of liquids and gases. Adequate slope, minimization of dead-legs, pressure losses, and good condensate drainage are parameters that absolutely must be considered to ensure reliable operation.
    • Pumping systems: Pumps are the central element in cleaning systems where liquids are circulated. Their dimensioning in terms of flow and pressure is crucial to deliver the cleaning liquid with the right parameters to the equipment to be cleaned.


    Arrgos uses all its know-how to design and manufacture equipment for on-site cleaning.

    Cannabis extraction

    Arrgos - Zentrifugen und Anlagenbau - Cannabisextraltion

    Extraction by ethanol-based filtration

    The Cannafuge is designed for the extraction and separation of ethanol-based cannabis biomass extraction systems.

    • Made of 316L stainless steel, the Cannafuge can be supplied with rotors for immersion or with specially designed baskets, including the unique IMP design.
    • Complete and fast cleaning is ensured by integrated CIP systems and designs that allow all parts of the centrifuge to be inspected for inspection.
    • Excellent separation performance is ensured by G-forces as high as 1800 G.
    • For low temperature applications, the Cannafuge can be built with a double jacket for the coolant to maintain the internal temperature of the vessel down to -40 °C with improved insulation.
    • With various handling solutions, including the unique "KSA" biomass recovery system, the Cannafuge can accept filter bags pre-packed with cannabis biomass or be fed directly with a cannabis-ethanol suspension.
    • For hazardous applications, the processing electrical components are rated for Atex or Class 1 environments, Groups C and D, Division 1. C and D, Division 1.

    Cleaning with the help of the FCPC

    Centrifugal partition chromatography is a purification method used to isolate individual fractions. used to isolate individual fractions from complex mixtures of organic components. In the rapidly growing cannabis market, Kromaton FCPC has established itself as an effective means of separating cannabinoid fractions for pharmaceutical applications. As a means of attenuating the psychoactive properties of cannabis products, FCPC has been shown to remove Δ9 THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) from CBD (cannabidiol). CBD (cannabidiol) while maintaining the active properties of cannabis extracts.

    Extensive research has been conducted on the use of CPFC as an effective tool for producing high-purity cannabis extracts. an effective tool for producing high-purity fractions from research and development scale to production scale.

    This research has shown that the PCFC is well suited to the use of different solvent systems depending on the cannabinoid fraction(s).

    Recovery of active ingredients by liquid-liquid centrifugal extraction

    When operating as a centrifuge extractor to perform liquid-liquid extractions, a feed solution containing one or more solutes (blue) and immiscible solvent (yellow) is used. Immiscible solvent (shown in yellow), whose density is different from the density of the feed solution, are introduced into the mixing chamber at the bottom of the centrifuge housing.

    A rotating stirring disk mixes the two immiscible liquids to form a dispersion (shown in green). Different models of stirring discs can be used depending on the interfacial tension of the liquid. Efficient mixing creates a large interface between the two liquids to ensure maximum mass transfer of solutes. Efficient mixing creates a large interfacial area between two liquids to facilitate the transfer of the solute(s).

    Aroma extraction line

    Liquid-liquid centrifugal extraction is a proven method with numerous advantages for extracting flavors from plants, herbs and fruits.

    Our state-of-the-art technology uses liquid-liquid centrifugation to separate flavor components from plant material, using natural solvents that do not affect the quality or purity of the extracted flavors.

    This method allows us to extract more concentrated and intense aromas than traditional methods such as distillation or cold pressing. The extracted flavors have exceptional quality with authentic taste and smell, which allows our customers to create high quality products.

    Our liquid-liquid centrifugal flavor extraction equipment is perfectly suited to the needs of the food and cosmetics industries, offering benefits such as lower production costs, better quality end products and faster extraction capacity.

    Our equipment is also ATEX certified to ensure that our equipment meets the most stringent safety standards for potentially explosive environments. Our commitment to safety is our top priority and we ensure that our equipment is regularly upgraded to meet the latest developments in ATEX standards.

    Rely on our expertise and learn how our state-of-the-art technology can help you create exceptional food and beverage products with intense and authentic flavors. Contact us today to learn more about our liquid-liquid centrifugation flavor extraction system.
