Frequently Asked Questions

How the name of pigging system comes into being?

Pigging system, also known as pipeline product recovery system, was once a concept in pipeline maintenance. And it involves the use of a device called a pig. To explain, it is used to clean the pipeline and recover products in the pipeline. Most importantly, this process is completed without disturbing the flow of products in the pipeline. In fact, pipeline pigs are used in many different industries. For instance, oil and gas, lubricants, chemical plants. And even aseptic applications, such as pharmaceutical or food. Of course, selecting the right pipeline pig for a application requires extensive experience. Given that the pig passes through the pipeline at a fast speed, and the friction with the pipeline usually makes a sound, which is a little like the cry of a pig, so it is also called a pigging system.

The working principle of a product recovery system

Pigging is to send a specially designed projectile into the pipeline, which is called a pig. Furthermore, the pig is usually driven by clean compressed air, or sometimes water and liquid products. Meanwhile ,when the pig passes through the pipeline, very little liquid can pass through the pipeline. As a result, the pig can safely transfer the liquid to the destination. On the other hand, the use of sanitary pigs can prevent products from being contaminated. That is to say the liquid remains in its original state. So, it can continue to be processed in the same way as the main part of the product. Generally speaking, pigging system is usually a permanent device and an integral part of production and operation.

Sanitary product recovery system types

Nowadays, most pigging systems are automatic, therefore, improving efficiency and reducing the chance of human error. Hyperfore also manufactures manual pigging system. The pig can be taken out manually at the receiving station. So it is suitable for operations with relatively less recovery frequency.

Manual launching station and manual receiving station

Hyperfore manual product recovery system includes a manual launching station, a manual receiving station. Nevertheless it is a econimical and efficient sanitary pigging system.

Automatic launching station and automatic receiving station

It is suitable for hygienic application. Such as in food, beverage, dairy, chocolate, candy, cosmetics, shampoo, detergent and other industries. Components of our hygienic automatic product recovery system are automatic launching station, automatic receiving station,etc. Another key point, it can recover more than 99.5% of the residual liquid during pipeline pigging.

Automatic sterile launching station

It is suitable for industries with strict requirenment for hygiene. For example, dairy products, wine, beverages, medicine and biotechnology industries. Hyperfore sterile product recovery system can be cleaned by CIP and SIP. The design of its launching station makes the whole product recovery system reach sterility level. That is to say, it is safe and relible.

Selecting the right pigging systems for the right production lines. Hyperfore is ready for professional advice.
