Ice pigging is a technique to clean pipes in which a mixture of water ice ("slurry") is pumped into the pipe and, forced by pressure, removes sediment and other obstructions to leave it clean.
The technique has been used to clean pipes from 6mm to 700mm in diameter and we provide consulting services to discuss if larger diameters can be reached for special projects.
We provide this specialized service in cleaning pipes to a wide variety of industries around the world while we offer the sale of Ice Pigging equipment for use in various applications. The technology is based on taking advantage of the complicated properties and incomparable benefits of the "slurries". The "slurry" is a semi-solid product pumpable as a liquid, a quality that makes it unique, but also acquires properties of a solid when a "pig" of "slurry" is formed inside a pipe. Ice Pigging is highly effective and with an exceptionally low risk to clean pipes.
It is a relatively fast process that leaves the walls of the pipes intact, which makes this technique ideal for applications such as food and drinks, water and water treatment and associated industries. Ice Pigging is currently accepted as the most cost-effective method to clean pipes in many countries around the world.
