Benefits of Pigging
Benefits of Pigging and Liquid Product Recovery Systems
The benefits of pigging (more properly called “liquid product recovery”) systems are well known throughout the hygienic and industrial process industries. From foods and beverages to paints, coatings, cosmetics, industrial lubricants and chemicals, the benefits, efficiency gains and cost savings that HPS proven pigging technology delivers include:
- High Return on Investment (ROI)
- Increased Yields and Better Margins
- Reduced Waste and Less Production Downtime
- Increased Plant Capacity
- Faster Changeovers using Less Resources
- Improved Environmental Sustainability
- Lower Water Consumption
- Reduced Energy Consumption
- Less use of CIP Chemicals and Cleaning Agents
- Reduced Effluent and Effluent Treatment and Disposal
- Minimized Contamination and Cross-Contamination Risks
- Higher Profits, Productivity and Efficiency
- Reduced Carbon Footprint
Pigging systems rapidly recover useable product from your processes, instead of discarding it as flush waste. This means you have more product to sell. But that’s only one of the many benefits of pigging systems.
HPS pigging technology will streamline your processes, reducing resources required and making your operations a lot quicker.
Furthermore, pigging can even eliminate certain process stages, such as the initial flush, streamlining your operations.
And because HPS hygienic (sanitary) pigs are bi-directional, maintain full contact with the pipe even around 1.5D bends, the pigging process is extremely fast, reliable and efficient with no complex return loops or turning stations.
Hygienic (sanitary) pigging and product recovery systems deliver a wide range of benefits and a high return on investment. The benefits of pigging include:
High Return on Investment (ROI)
If you choose an HPS pigging solution, your savings will pay back the initial cost of the system in a few months. So after that, it’s nearly all profit. That makes a great business case for including pigging as part of your liquid processing operation.
Increased Yields and Margins
Increased product yield and capacity is one of the biggest benefits of pigging systems. Instead of flushing residual product to waste, pigging systems mean you can continue to process it, or pack, store or sell it. And as a direct result of these increased yields and greater capacity, you’ll increase your profit margins.
Reduced Waste and Production Downtime
One of the main benefits of pigging systems is that they massively reduce product waste, as well saving cleaning agents and water. And because pigging systems make cleaning easier and faster, changeovers are much quicker, so there’s less production downtime.
Sustainability is important to nearly every business these days. Because pigging saves so much waste, water, chemicals, and related transport and disposal costs, the environmental benefits of pigging are significant.
