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:

Improving sustainability

Improving sustainability in paints and coatings production is a key driver to many companies to implementing HPS pigging technology.

HPS pigging systems for paint and coatings companies improve environmental sustainability by reducing solvent and water usage, along with reducing product waste, cutting energy used in processing, and lowering waste treatment and waste transport.

Many of the latest HPS pigging innovations have first gone into the paint and coatings sector. For example, our dual pig system can save paint companies significant amounts of water or solvents. Our max yield valve saves both water and product and improves the overall efficiency of paint and coatings production. We have other innovations to improve environmental sustainability as well.
