The AQL500 is a factory ready and fully automated Ice Pigging machine that operates on a continuous basis, capable of delivering “always-ready” ice for the purpose of Ice Pigging of liquid products and food stuffs in enclosed pipes.
• The ice can flow through and clean diameter changes, sensors, valves, inline mixers and pumps.
• Ice Pigging is a highly effective pipeline cleaning method compared to water flushing which causes mixing that must be discarded as waste.
• Efficient cleaning drastically reduces effluent volume, water consumption and energy use as result of less hot water used for CIP flushing.
• Ice Pigging can achieve 70-90% pure product recovery where higher rates are possible in situations where some product dilution is acceptable.
• More effective cleaning significantly decreased cleaning time and fluid volume.
