“Ice pigging is a brilliant concept of special pipe cleaning problems. Not only removing sediment but also removing the bio-film! After Ice Pigging, the PVC pipes we had pigged looked like new inside.”
Mario Wildschut, Distribution Engineer, Oasen
THE PROJECT - DRINKING WATER
After several successful pilot Ice Pigging trials, Oasen were very pleased. It was decided to use Ice Pigging to clean the water mains network in Zwijndrecht. 120,000m of PVC pipe was cleaned with random camera inspections being performed both before and after the operation to ensure the success of the cleaning process.
Over time, sediment and bio-film tend to accumulate in drinking water pipes meaning that periodic cleaning is usually undertaken.
