Complete Pigging Systems
If you need a new pigging system, HPS will deliver a full project from initial solution designs and supply of equipment to commissioning, training and ongoing support.
Hygienic (Sanitary) Pigs
Hygienic (sanitary) pigs are the most important component of a liquid product recovery system. The pig is a specially-designed flexible projectile, slighter larger than the diameter of the pipe it is pigging. As the pig moves through the process line, it recovers the product and cleans the inside of the pipeline or tubing.
Pig detectors (or pig detection systems) determine the presence of an HPS pig when it’s in close proximity. Pig detectors are a fundamental component of pigging systems and are typically located close to launch and receive stations.
Piggable Diverter Valves
The HPS Solid Seat Ball Valve (SSBV) is a three-way piggable diverter valve specially designed to allow non obstructed product transfer. This can be from one source to two selectable positions, or from two selectable product sources to one destination.
Sanitary Ball Valves
The HPS Sanitary Ball Valve is a valve specially designed by HPS for use in sanitary and hygienic pigging applications. Also known as the Clean In Place or “CIP-able” ball valve, it incorporates cutting-edge inflatable seal technology.
Launch and Return Stations
Pig launch, receive and return stations are important components of any pigging system. Their role is to introduce the pig safely into the product line, propel the pig to and from source and destination, and store the pig when they’re not actually ‘pigging’.
Pigging System Automation
Automating your pigging system will increase process speed, productivity, reliability and efficiency. It also enhances safety and reduces the chances of human error.
Pigging System Design
Designing a pigging system so that it operates effectively, efficiently and safely is one of the most important aspects of a product recovery project. That’s why HPS provides high-quality pigging system design services to ensure the success of your project.
Pigging System Training
From operators to maintenance staff and engineers, it’s essential to train everyone that will work with your pigging systems.
Pig Check Advisory Software
Based on your pig usage, our Pig Checking Advisory Software tells your operators and maintenance team when it’s time to check the condition of the pig, look for signs of wear or damage, and when it’s ready to replace.
