Ice Pigging was recently used to commission six pipes carrying water, steam and condensate that connect to the CHP plant at a major whiskey distillery in Speyside, Scotland.
The heating pipework was producing discoloured effluent of 400NTU pre-Ice Pigging. A large amount of deposits had been removed with the ice and the pipe was thoroughly cleaned. Post-ice led to a major reduction in turbidity and very positive results with improved flow rates for the six pipes.
In total, 5070m of pipeline was cleaned with such positive results that the project manager overseeing the operation had this to say:
“Just wanted to take the time to extend our thanks to the team that attended site to complete the ice pigging works. They worked tirelessly in conditions that were less than ideal and went over and above to get the job completed in the required time frame. Please pass on my thanks to all involved with these works.”
As Mark Twain once said, “Too much of anything is bad, but too much of a good whiskey is barely enough.”
