What We Do...

Nivalis Ice Pigging is used in a wide range of industries worldwide to keep industrial pipes clean and hygienic, and to increase product recovery.

Ice Pigging has been developed by the Nivalis engineering team since 2007. Ice, produced by Nivalis equipment, is able to flow like a liquid or move like a solid enabling: 1) Cleaning of pipework systems. 2) Product recovery and reduction of waste from manufacturing processes.
