how pigging systems are benefiting food manufacturers
Rising cost pressures, intense competition, the demand for sustainably produced goods, changing customer preferences, stringent hygiene requirements and the need for flexibility and high product quality are some of the challenges facing food manufacturers.
HPS’s focus is to help solve these challenges by providing innovative and cost-effective automatic pigging solutions that help food manufacturers reduce the risks of contamination, lower product change over and cleaning times, save water and cleaning fluids, increase yields and improve the competitiveness of food processing operations.
With over two decades experience in food processing, HPS has managed many large pigging and process automation projects for organisations in the food industry.
We’ve earned an unrivalled reputation for supplying high-quality, reliable pigging and liquid transfer systems that offer technical excellence and performance.
transforming food processing operations
HPS pigging and liquid transfer solutions provide high return on investment with rapid payback.
The benefits of pigging for food manufacturers are substantial, including accelerated changeover times, reduced waste, increased production capacity, and decreased water usage.
tailored pigging systems for food processing
From design to implementation, commissioning and after-sales support, HPS pigging and liquid transfer solutions are tailored to meet your exact needs and requirements.
Our high-performance solutions are designed to meet the maximum microbiological, hygienic and sanitary levels of cleanliness, while ensuring high levels of safety, efficiency and reliability. HPS technology is particularly suitable for food applications due to many advantages:
- Increased product yields, lower labour costs and less downtime
- Specially designed valves that meet stringent sanitary and hygienic requirements
- Hygienic (sanitary) fully detectable pipeline pigs manufactured from food grade silicone polymer which meets the requirements of FDA regulations
- Significantly faster changeovers and improved product quality
- Higher capacity and increased production flexibility
- Reduced risks of cross contamination
- Reduced waste and waste processing, decreased water and cleaning chemical usage
- Plus much more
The pigging system recovers approximately 200 kilograms of good product per run that would otherwise go to waste or become effluent.
IMPROVING SUSTAINABILITY IN FOOD PROCESSING
Environmental sustainability in food production and processing is a priority for nearly all companies and organisations in the sector.
HPS pigging systems significantly improve the sustainability of food companies that pump or process liquid or ‘wet’ product. This is because they reduce water and CiP chemical usage, shorten rinse cycles and save product. Pigging also speeds up changeovers so saves energy. And because there is less waste to start with, waste treatment and transport costs are much lower.
HPS continues to develop ways to help food companies increase their environmental sustainability. If you want to know how to increase the sustainability of food processing using pigging technology please contact HPS.
