CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Process Pigging Systems has unveiled a new line of pigs for cleaning sanitary tube process pipelines. Constructed of medical grade silicone, the bi-directional pigs can be used with various diameters of pipeline. According to the company, the pigs achieve product recovery rates of 99+%, and can negotiate 90-degree 1.5 diameter elbows. Available in most sanitary tube sizes and some schedule pipe sizes, the pigs can be steam cleaned to over 120º C between batches without degradation

Pigs are propelled through the pipeline by compressed air, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, water or the next material to be used in production. According to the company, this form of pigging commonly provides product recovery of 99%, allows faster product change-overs, reduces water consumption by up to 50%, and allows companies to reduce CIP chemical consumption by up to 30%.
