Overview of Products, Technologies, and Services

Pigging system

Pigging is used in the production, processing, packaging, and bottling processes of a variety of beverages. It is used in a wide range of products, from raw materials such as gelatinous materials and sugar syrups to final processing stages such as wines, spirits, soft drinks, and juices.
Pigging, simply put, is the collection of liquid product left in the pipeline during pipeline changeovers using special projectiles. Pigging offers a variety of advantages. In addition, new pigging solutions pay off faster than expected. In most cases, payback is possible in less than one year.

Product Features

Feature 1 Pig technology has been around for some time. Developed in the oil industry in the first half of the 20th century. There is some speculation about how the name "pigging" was born. When a group of pipeline engineers put the projectile into the pipeline to clean it, the projectile made a squeak as it passed through the pipeline. Like a pig! That's a great story. But of course, the modern pigs used in today's plumbing plants don't squeal. In fact, they make very little noise. Also, pig systems are often used in the same way as the phrase product collect system.
Feature 2 Pig must be flexible. This is to ensure that full contact can be maintained when moving along the bend of the pipeline. The ultimate goal is to recover 100% of the products left in the pipeline. To avoid product uncollected and to reduce the risk of damage to the pig itself, it is best to avoid complex pig shapes. After trial and error, They found that the pig shape which was developed by Uresh provides the highest level of performance. The pig itself is bidirectional and is usually controlled automatically and can operate for a very long time without needing to be replaced.
Feature 3 Food manufacturers may be interested in pigging for a variety of reasons. The most common reason is to recover ingredients from inside the process pipeline. In general, the longer the pipework, the more food processors get from pigging. In addition to increasing yields and reducing flash waste, the use of pigging is very effective because it allows food manufacturers to reduce the use of cleaning agents, chemicals, and water. At the same time, pigging improves the environmental sustainability of the companies that use it because it provides a significant reduction in overall waste.
Feature 4 The pig system is an important investment. If you understand it correctly, you will get great benefits. Achieve rapid return on investment, clear gains in profitability, and increased sustainability. However, as with any other capital investment, you need to choose the right supplier. The supplier of choice must understand the process and be able to advise on the most appropriate solution for their needs. Choosing a pig system from a product collection and liquid transfer specialist with a long history and proven qualifications will greatly help ensure the success of your project.
