New CIP System cleans during operation and sanitation – dramatically reducing downtime.

Creston, IA Vanmark, an industrial potato and produce processing equipment manufacturer, has introduced a new option to its Peeler/Scrubber/Washers that automatically and effectively cleans the peeler bed and rolls in as little as 10 minutes – allowing for cleaning during production and dramatically reducing downtime during sanitation.

Vanmark’s Peeler/Scrubber/Washer Clean in Place (CIP) System features upper and lower spray bars that provide a thorough and consistent cleaning to the peeler bed and rolls. The minimum cleaning cycle time is 7-10 minutes, and optional controls automate operation.

“With the latest safety guidelines not allowing operators to clean peelers during production, we created a solution to do it for them quickly and effectively,” says Vanmark Engineering Manager Kyle Huck. “Not only that, it also assists with sanitation, which gets the peeler back online faster. We’ve also seen water savings through the increased efficiency and lower water usage than the traditional pan set up. Our processor customers are excited about all of the possibilities the CIP System offers.”

The Vanmark CIP System works with all roll types on various Peeler/Scrubber/Washer models and is available as a retrofit and on new builds. More information can be found at
