Riboflavin Coverage Test

CIP systems are used in the pharmaceutical industry to clean one or more vessels in the manufacturing process. Spray devices are internally installed in vessels to ensure the CIP system can properly clean all areas of the tank. During the cleaning cycle, spray devices disperse cleaning solution and provide physical action to remove residues inside equipment. 

Spray devices must deliver adequate tank coverage for a complete clean. One method to determine coverage is to perform a riboflavin coverage test. Riboflavin, a type of vitamin B found in food, is selected for vessel coverage studies due to its fluorescent properties under ultraviolet light.
