Industrial hygiene

Cut costs and improve efficiency with enzymes

Power a more effective clean with enzymes that break down soils and clogs quickly. Novozymes enzymes can save time and money, remove inefficiencies from the cleaning-in-place (CIP) cycle and extend membrane life.

How can enzymes help?

Thanks to leftover residue, CIP cycles can take up to three days with industry standard cleaners, hindering production. But there's an easier, more efficient way. Enzymatic cleaners can clean more effectively in less time.

Enzymes, such as proteases, are specially developed to break down specific kinds of soil, such as proteins. Applying these to CIP cleaners can degrade and wash away unwanted clogs more quickly than a non-enzymatic cleaner.

  • Degrade residue, leaving equipment easier to clean
  • Reduce the re-fouling of the membrane
  • Extend the lifetime of the membrane compared to chemicals
  • Reduce human health risks with nature-derived ingredients
  • Provide a safer clean powered by nature

Could inefficient cleaning be impacting your plant’s bottom line?

Even though your processing equipment looks clean, it might not be. Relying exclusively on traditional chemistry to remove organic soils can result in sub-optimal hygiene and reduce key operational efficiencies.
