PIGGING AND LIQUID PRODUCT RECOVERY SYSTEMS

REDUCe WASTE AND DISPOSAL COSTS

Many paints and coatings companies have a diverse product portfolio. Therefore, frequent changeovers are commonplace in the paints and coatings industry. However, the changeover process can be extremely wasteful, time-consuming, resource-intensive and can have a negative impact on the financial and operating efficiency of a business.

HPS liquid product recovery (pigging) systems recover up to 99.5% of product remaining in the pipeline at the end of the transfer process. This increases yields, reduces product waste and lowers the amount of cleaning chemicals, water and time required for the cleaning process.

And because pigging reduces the downtime associated with cleaning and changeovers, this increases plant capacity.

PIGGING AND LIQUID PRODUCT RECOVERY SYSTEMS

decrease CROSS-CONTAMINATION RISKS

Because the HPS hygienic (sanitary) pig removes practically all the product from the pipeline, the risks of cross-contamination are reduced.

Essentially, HPS pigging systems enable different products (even incompatible ones) to be transferred in the same line with clear separation between them. In turn, this means improved product quality, reduced risks of cross-contamination and minimal mixing between batches and different products.

REDUCES THE CHANCES OF SPOILAGE

Because the HPS pig efficiently cleans the pipeline and recovers product, this helps prevent the build-up of paint residue on the internal wall of the pipeline. This reduces the risks of bacterial contamination and minimises the chances of paints and coatings spoiling.

LIQUID TRANSFER AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

no bad product transfers

The HPS Rotomatrix liquid transfer solution enables paint and coatings manufacturers to quickly and reliably connect pipelines from multiple sources to multiple destinations. Because the Rotomatrix has rotating arms to connect different sources to different destinations as well as mechanical couplings, software interlocking and path selection feedback, operators can no longer make bad transfers. So, if an arm isn’t connected properly, the Rotomatrix will not allow the transfer of product.

LIQUID TRANSFER AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

SAFE, FAST, RELIABLE liquid transfer

The HPS Automatrix is a fully automatic piggable valve manifold that provides a fully automated, efficient, tidy and safe working environment for paint and coatings processing and production.

Because it automates source and destination selection, it not only makes changeovers extremely quick, it also means there’s less chance of connection errors. And because the Automatrix almost cuts out manual selection procedures, there’s minimal opportunity for human error.

What’s more, the design of the Automatrix reduces the amount of pipeline required, which frees up space and helps get rid off hoses. This ensures maximum safety and lowers the risks of accidents. It’s also fully piggable, which increases yields, reduces waste, speeds up changeovers times and lowers contamination risks.
