We’re pleased to announce that we’ve started the year on a high by winning a £1.2 million GBP project for pigging.HPS Logo globe

The project involves delivering multiple product recovery (‘pigging’) and liquid distribution systems to a large paints and coatings manufacturing plant in the UK. HPS was awarded the contract after a very competitive and intense tendering process.

The pigging and liquid transfer systems will be delivered as a full turnkey hygienic solution where HPS will manage and deliver the whole project for the customer.

Benefits of the Pigging and Liquid Transfer Solution

The benefits of the hygienic solution include minimised product waste, increased product yields, faster changeovers, and reduced water and chemical usage.

The solution will also lower waste disposal costs, reduce cross-contamination and contamination risks, reduce product hold up in pockets and greatly improve the cleaning process.

Gilbert Murphy, our CEO commented:

“Our pigging and liquid transfer solutions offer high-performance, durability, reliability and technical excellence. Winning this project demonstrates the effectiveness of our solutions against international competition”

“We look forward to working in partnership with our client to reduce product waste, increase yields and ensure simple and efficient cleaning. We also look forward to demonstrating our proven track record for outstanding ongoing customer care”

Why Paints and Coatings Companies are Pigging?

In recent years, the demand for pigging and liquid transfer solutions has gained momentum in the paints and coatings industry. Common issues facing the paints and coatings industry include increasing raw material prices, sustainability challenges and lower volatile organic compound (VOC) regulations.

As a result, many paints and coatings manufacturers are implementing innovative technologies and processes such as pigging and liquid transfer technology.

Here’s a closing comment from Gilbert:

“As the market leaders in the process pigging industry, we’re looking forward to helping even more paints and coatings companies improve their productivity, efficiency, and processes through pipeline pigging and liquid transfer technology”

“It’s certainly going to be a great year for HPS. Watch the space for even more project announcements as the year progresses”.
