Pigging Helps the Industrial Lubricants Industry

Asian nations that are heavily investing in sectors that require the use of industrial lubricants, such as transportation, energy, and infrastructure development.

The Association of Southeast Asia Nations (ASEAN) predicts growth at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.1% by 2027. If growth continues at this rate then members of ASEAN are expected to produce 3,500,000 metric tons of industrial lubricants by 2027.

If demand soars too high for Asian lubricant manufacturers to fulfil supply, it may result in increased imports from other regions, such as Europe.

Pigging And Industrial Lube

Pigging systems for lubricants are a commonly used process that works by propelling a projectile (the ‘pig’) through a pipeline. The pig then pushes the liquid product through the pipeline to its next destination.

HPS pigs are high performing: they are quick, capable of withstanding high temperatures, and recover up to 99.5% of liquid product from full pipelines.

By pushing the pig through the pipeline, the excess liquid product left in the line at the end of a run can be pumped out and sent on for further processing or packaging.

Pigging saves product, it decreases waste, improves efficiency and it creates profit.

Not only does it help companies financially, but pigging enables companies to work towards sustainable manufacturing goals. Carbon footprints are reduced and there is less effluent that will end up polluting the earth.
