In this paper, examples of using an in-situ electrochemical cleaning technique are illustrated. It can be shown that while using the standard chemical for cleaning in the dairy industry, the application of the in-situ electrochemical method is very effective in removing the dairy protein based fouling deposits. Both the gel protocol developed earlier and the real fouling procedure have been used to evaluate the effectiveness of the new method.
