We know how important it is for us to listen to you. HPS will work with you on your project from start to finish and beyond. From your initial enquiry to your post-commissioning needs, we follow a process that puts you first (here’s more on How HPS will work with you on your pigging project).
At HPS we pride ourselves on offering excellent client service before, during, and after your purchase. Our customers are at the heart of everything that we do. We have a dedicated client care team that can help you with all you might need after your purchase.
Here’s how we help you after your HPS liquid product recovery (pigging) system is commissioned.
HPS systems are specifically designed to be low maintenance, but, like everything in life, they need some upkeep. HPS pigging systems will require the occasional purchase of consumable items, such as pigs and valve seal kits. With each HPS pigging system you will be given a comprehensive spares list that outlines each piece of equipment as well as recommended stock holding levels.
We recommend that you keep a variety of spare parts in stock to facilitate quick repairs and replacements and avoid prolonged downtime. Most spare parts are kept in stock at the HPS UK headquarters, and we will always endeavour to dispatch your order on the same day.
Keeping your production downtime to a minimum is of the utmost importance to us, so making sure that you have what you need when you need it is a key part of our client care ethos.

Planned Preventative Maintenance Programmes
Having a planned preventative maintenance programmes for your pigging system is the easiest way to make sure that your system remains in tip-top shape. Just like your pigging system, we’ll design our preventative maintenance programmes to your requirements.
Typically included in your preventative maintenance programme are:
- Maintenance visits
- Discounts on spare parts
- Emergency call outs
- Software updates
- Hardware upgrades
- Operators refresh training
Having a preventative maintenance programme means that your pigging system will run at optimal performance, efficiency, and effectiveness. The lifetime of your equipment and maintenance costs will also be kept down, contributing to the high ROI and financial sustainability of HPS pigging systems.
Pigging System Health Check
To make sure that you’re getting the most out of your HPS pigging system, we offer a free health check 12 months after commissioning is completed, dependent on plant location and engineer availability.
This involves one of our expert engineers visiting your site on a date scheduled to suit you. They will walk existing lines, review configuration, and examine the equipment and spare parts. They will also provide suggestions for improvements and evaluate training needs for your team.
Correct training in how to use an HPS pigging system is essential to the effective performance of your system.
If you’re a new HPS customer, or deploying a new HPS solution, we’ll provide you and your team with all the training you need when we commission your new system.
We also offer refresher training, as well as training for new staff. We recommend that system operators attend a refresher training course every 12-18 months. By using HPS to deliver training, you can be assured that you’ll receive best practice and fully comprehensive instruction from experienced engineers.
