Saving Water by Pigging
Why Companies Use Pigging Systems to Save Water
Companies that process liquids often use massive amounts of water to manufacture their products.
In many countries, droughts are far too common, and water is a scarce and precious resource.
Wherever they are located, many companies are aiming to reduce their water use and have clearly defined water conservation and sustainability targets.
Liquid product recovery (pigging) systems reduce water consumption, especially the need for long, continuous pipeline flushes between product transfers and product changeovers. This is because the system recovers most of the product residue from the pipeline, so there’s less product (usually just a trace) to remove, so less flush required.
This short video explains why pigging is a green technology that helps companies that process liquids to save water.
