COP (Clean Out of Place)

An automated or semi automated procedure in which the process equipment is disassembled and its components are placed into an agitated fluid bath of cleaning solutions. Baskets may be utilized to hold and wash smaller parts such as gaskets, clamps, valve bodies, PD pump rotors, etc. The cleaning is normally done with a proprietary acid or caustic-based detergent, or a combination of both, with a Compendial Water rinse.
