Appearing in Food Manufacture’s online publication was SUEZ’s Ice Pigging machine, the AQL500. The article highlights the hygienic machine’s potential for major savings among Food & Beverage manufacturers, how the ice navigates through complex pipework and the 5 years of development that it took to reach where it is today. Today, during product changeover, large quantities of water may have to be used to clear pipes of product, resulting in wastage of high-value product while also creating large amounts of effluent to treat. With Ice Pigging, factories can recover the majority of product left in a pipeline and in doing so improve the production efficiency of the plant, reduce water consumption and reduce effluent produced.
The AQL500 was recently launched in February 2016 and is now available across Europe. The machine is designed for permanent installation into a production facility where it will provide ‘ice pigs’ on an automated basis.
