HPS and the BCF
Improving Efficiency, Sustainability and Productivity
HPS is an associate member of the British Coatings Federation. We joined the BCF because our liquid product recovery (pigging) technology is in wide use in the paint and coatings industry.
HPS pigging technology significantly increases yields and capacity, while reducing contamination risks, cutting waste, speeding up changeovers, decreasing downtime, and improving environmental sustainability.

paint and coatings
HPS high-performance pigging solutions are used throughout the world with water-based paints, solvent-based paints, varnish, pigments, coatings, plus many more.
Pigging is mainly used for recovering product rather than sending it to waste. However, with the introduction of stricter biocide regulations, it is increasingly being used to help prevent contamination and cross-contamination.
Either way, paint and coatings companies that invest in HPS technology get a rapid payback and high ROI.
As well as the UK, we also work with many paint and coatings companies in the USA, Australasia and many other countries.
With over 25 years’ experience in paint processing, HPS has earned an enviable reputation for providing industry proven pigging and liquid transfer systems that offer exceptional technical capability and optimum performance.
Our solutions have helped leading brands such as Ronseal, Kelly-Moore Paints, AkzoNobel and Benjamin Moore to quickly and efficiently transfer raw product into mixing tanks, avoid cross-contamination after changeovers, speed up processing and recover significant amounts of useable product.
transforming paint and coatings processing
HPS has helped many paint, pigments, coatings and varnish manufacturers realise significant benefits from pigging systems, liquid transfer solutions and process automation.
hps proven technology
Our solutions satisfy the highest quality standards. Importantly, because our systems are specially designed for hygienic applications, we help reduce the risks of contamination. This is particularly important to paint companies that are reducing the use of biocides, while at the same time need to avoid expensive and damaging product recalls.
The fast operation of HPS systems, combined with larger diameter process pigs specifically designed for paint processing, ensures highly efficient, reliable and cost-effective operation.
HPS pigging and liquid transfer solutions offer significant benefits to manufacturers of paint, pigments, coatings and varnish:
- Reliable Prevention of Contamination and Cross-Contamination
- Minimised Product Waste and Higher Product Yields
- Reduced Product Hold-Up Pockets
- Fully Detectable Pigs Made of Solvent Resistant Materials Specially Designed for Paint Processing
- Faster Changeovers and Reduced Labour-Intensive Cleaning Processes
- Unique Minimal Dead-Space Valves
- Reduce Water and Chemical Waste
- Lower Associated Waste Disposal Costs
- Highly Efficient and Cost-Effective: Payback Typically Less than 12 months
- Improved Safety and Reduced Connection Errors
