GEA Process Engineering Eco-Icepush ice pigging service

Friday, 23 May, 2014 | Supplied by: GEA Process Engineering Pty Ltd


GEA Process Engineering introduces Eco-Icepush - a method of purging process piping systems. Ice pigging forces an engineered two-phase ice slurry through process pipework to recover valuable product. Because the ice is kept in a fluid state, it has the ability to reach every part of the system - even small, complex geometries. The sharpness of the ice as it passes the pipe inner surface recovers and separates product and significantly reduces effluent.

Benefits are said to include: increased product yield through clear product separation and better product recovery; there is no problem with complex geometries and difficult pipeline configurations; if the ice pig were to get stuck, it will simply melt; it acts as a highly efficient pipeline cleaning system compared to water flushing; reduced effluent; improved OEE.

Typical applications include: the reduction of white water in dairies; better product recovery and cleaning in brewery, juice and beverage plants; and many similar applications in the food, health and personal care industries.
