Pipe Pigs – for Product Recovery and Pipeline Cleaning

Pigs for Hygienic and Other Liquid Processes

HPS pipe cleaning pigs are specially designed for highly effective, thorough and efficient sanitary (sometimes called hygienic) pigging. They’re widely used in the food and beverage industries, as well as with oils, paints, coatings, solvents, homecare, household and personal care liquids, and other liquid process applications. 

Ideal for product transfer, product recovery and cleaning piping, HPS pigs can travel around bends while maintaining full body contact with the inside of the pipe.  They have a recovery efficiency of up to 99.5% and need only low pressure propulsion.

Features of HPS Product Recovery and Pipe Cleaning and Pigs:Pigs for hygienic, sanitary and process applications

For Food, Beverages, Oils, Solvents, and More!flexible pig design

We have a wide range of pipe pigs for different piping specifications and diameters. We also manufacture them in different materials, depending on the application. There are three basic categories of pig:

We design all our pigging and product recovery solutions to the specific needs of our clients, so we will help recommended the right type and size of pig for your pipeline size and application. As well as different diameters and different materials, we also custom design and manufacture pigs in different colours. Whatever liquids you process, you can rest assured we will provide help, guidance and advice every step of the way so you get the optimum specification of pig for your application.

Flexible – Can Travel Around 90 Degree Bends an

The innovative, flexible design of HPS pigs enables them to travel through standard 1.5D 90 degree bends while fully cleaning and recovering product.

High Quality, Bi-Directional

We manufacture our pigs in a range of sizes: from 1 inch to 8 inches diameter. All HPS pigs are bi-directional, which is a major advantage in pigging system design and process efficiency. They are extremely high-quality, robust and long-lasting: they can be used many times without replacement. Their silicon-based construction gives the pigs a long working life expectancy, and they can be steam cleaned (cleaned in place or “CIP’d” if required) to 250°C without degradation. Their material is also compliant with federal code of regulations and FDA Approval Specifications.

Fully Detectablemagnetic pigs

Our pigs are magnetic, but unlike other magnetic pig designs do not contain any solid magnets (solid magnets are a safety and contamination risk). Instead, the internal core of HPS magnetic pigs 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 mount externally, it is quick, easy and cost-effective to add them to existing pipe work.

As well as locating the pigs, a non-intrusive pig detection system using magnetised pigs enables semi and full pigging system automation, which can provide massive increases in efficiency and productivity.
