I know that the Chicago CRC (as opposed to the His'achdus, which is also 
CRC) allows the use of equipment that is only kosher because of bitul -- 
even when the bitul is done specifically at the Jews' request!  Clamato 
contains less than 1/60 clam juice; at the CRC's request the clam juice 
is added last, so that it will be batel and will therefore not make the 
equipment treif.  The CRC will of course not give a hechsher to the 
Clamato itself, despite the bitul; but it does give a hechsher to other 
products made on the same equipment without kashering.

Zev Sero            Wishing everyone health, wealth, and
zev at sero.name       happiness in 5782
