Pigging System Design

Pigging System Design and Implementation Services

Designing a pigging system so that it operates effectively, efficiently and safely is one of the most important aspects of a product recovery project.

Because nearly every liquid process is different, there’s no such thing as an ‘off the shelf’ pigging system. And while the basic principles of pigging are straightforward, it takes years of experience and high levels of expertise to design and implement a solution that’s safe, easy to operate, long lasting and works at optimum performance.

Getting It Right

The principle of pigging, that is, sending a tight-fitting projectile through a pipeline to force out residual product, is straightforward. However, to design an effective pigging system for any particular liquid process requires extensive expertise and experience. That’s because there’s a lot to take in to account. For example, length and diameter of pipeline, pipeline material, type of propellant, viscosity of the liquid or liquids, pumping pressures, temperatures, types of couplings, number of sources and destinations, whether the product needs protection from air, whether it tends to foam, the number and frequency of changeovers, types of valves used, and so on.

To ensure the success of your pigging system, we strongly recommend you contact HPS design experts at the early stages of your project. They’ll work closely with you to deliver a successful system: one that meets your objectives, does what you need it to do, avoids any pitfalls and provides a rapid return on investment. In other words, we’ll help you get it right.

Saving You Time, Money and Headaches

HPS leads the world in hygienic and sanitary pigging, product recovery and product transfer system design. Our broad knowledge, experience and expertise will save you time, money and headaches. As well as a multi-disciplined engineering team, we have the manufacturing and procurement resources to supply you with the best equipment, and the best solutions, for your business’s needs.

Comprehensive Servicespigging system design

Although we can supply all the components you need to build a pigging solution, the success (and safety) of your project comes down to design, implementation, commissioning, training and maintenance. That’s why we strongly recommend you use the comprehensive range of pigging system design services we provide. At the very least, we will need to review your system before we supply any equipment. This is to ensure we are confident your system will function safely and effectively.


In every HPS pigging system design, safety is the number one priority. All our solutions have an excellent safety record. We have a wide variety of pigging system safety features and devices that we incorporate in our designs to minimise the risks of accidents. These range from specially designed components that prevent our hygienic pigs from leaving the pipe or travelling where they’re not supposed to, to automated systems to reduce the risk of human error.

Pigging System Commissioning

We have strict commissioning procedures for all our systems: we won’t ‘sign off’ any project unless we are convinced the safety risks have been minimised. At the same time, we also provide operator training to ensure our equipment is used safely and effectively.
