Ice Pigging – Line cleaning for industrial customers

Ice Pigging is a highly efficient line cleaning and product recovery technique in which an ice slurry is pushed through production pipelines to clean pipes and recover product. It can be applied to a vast range of products within a number of industries and is adapted to give maximum benefits depending on the characteristics of the product in the pipe.

Efficient cleaning drastically reduces effluent volume, water consumption and energy use as a result of less hot water used for CIP (clean-in-place) flushing, enhancing a site’s overall efficiency.

The AQL500 Ice Pigging Machine

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.

Benefits:

•   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.
