Pigs for Product Recovery, Product Transfer and Pipe Cleaning
The term “Pigging” refers to the operation of forcing a flexible projectile (called a Pig), through a product transfer pipe.
HPS patented pigs are specially designed for highly effective, thorough and efficient hygienic (sometimes called sanitary) pipe line pigging. They can travel around bends, need only low pressure propulsion, and have a recovery efficiency of over 99.5%.
High Quality, Bi-Directional Hygienic Pigs
The HPS Pigs range from 1 inch to 8 inches diameter and are Bi-directional. They are extremely high-quality and can be used many times without replacement. Due to the material used the pigs have a long life expectancy and can be steam cleaned to 250°C without degradation. This material is also compliant with federal code of regulations and FDA Approval Specifications.
90 Degree Bends
The innovative design of HPS pigs enables them to travel through standard 1.5D 90 degree bends.
The internal core of the HPS pig contains flexible magnetized silicone that allows it to be detected in the pipe non-intrusively, using a specifically designed HPS Pig Detector. What’s more, because our pig detectors being are mounted externally, it is quick, easy and cost-effective to add them to existing pipe work.
