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.
High value engineering
Specialist and high tolerance manufacturing applications are extremely well suited to Ice Pigging. Lower "re-work" reduces costs significantly.Learn more about high value engineering
Automotive and supply chain
When working to extremely high quality standards, Ice Pigging reduces the risk of product contamination.Learn more about automotive and supply chain
Maritime and ship systems
The marine environment is very challenging and time in port is lost time. Ice Pigging is quick, enabling cleaning in short time windows.Learn more about maritime and ship systems
Ice Pigging is used in ships and sub sea vessels to improve asset life and "platform availability"Learn more about defence
Surface coatings, paints and pigments
Paints and pigments lines can be very difficult to clean and reduce cross batch contamination. Ice Pigging offers a solution!Learn more about surface coatings, paints and pigments
Pure water loops require extremely high levels of cleanliness in this heavily compliance focused sector. Nivalis can support in ensuring bio free water loopsLearn more about pharma
Personal care and cosmetics
Nivalis have a great deal of experience in FMCG manufacturing. Hygienic "in factory" equipment allows automatic product recovery of multiple production lines.Learn more about personal care and cosmetics

Ice Pigging is used in some niche applications. Companies looking at best available technique (BAT) contact us with applications where Ice Pigging can add a lot of value.Learn more about other industries
Ice Pigging helps you reduce waste across product, water and chemicals.
Much improved pipe cleanliness, and because Ice Pigging is quicker, system availability is better too.
Ice Pigging is carried out at low-pressure and often cleans in a single pass. Ice then goes to drain or waste and then melts!
Because Ice Pigging is more effective, you have to clean less often. And when you do, it’s quicker.
Comparison of pipe cleaning methods
The comparative image showcases different pipe cleaning methods, with ice pigging clearly emerging as the most successful, as it effectively removes stubborn deposits and restores the pipes to a pristine condition.
Ice Pigging is now in use in 15 countries
50 years. The combined experience of Ice Pigging within the Nivalis team
Over 10,000 tonnes of ice have been produced by Nivalis Ice Pigging
Read more about how we helped companies like Toa Grout
For a decade, we have been supported by the engineering team at Nivalis, ever since we introduced Ice Pigging for water and wastewater pipes in Japan. This includes Ice Production Units, Delivery Units and Flow Analysis Units, custom-made for our operational environment. Their engineering and design are backed by profound knowledge of the Ice Pigging technology and their specialist support for equipment has been always prompt, dedicated and professional.Keiji Yuki, Ice Pigging Department Manager: Toa Grout Kogyo - Japan
How we work
We’ve been at the forefront of Ice Pigging technology for over a decade.
Because we’ve been involved in developing the Ice Pigging technology since the start, the our team have designed and developed many different types of Ice Pigging equipment over the years. Some of our equipment has been in operational use for over ten years. Whether it is our EHEDG designed hygienic equipment or our more robust maritime sector larger containerised systems, the Nivalis engineering team produce reliable equipment to exacting standards.Learn more about Nivalis
We work with you the way you want, whether that’s designing a complete system, providing Ice Pigging as a fully run service, or working with your existing contractors. Alternatively, you may just require one of our standard NIV500 machines. These machines are in use in factories in Europe, USA, Canada, and the Middle East. We haven't stopped learning and are open to new challenges in new and diverse sectors.The benefits of Ice Pigging
We tend to work with people for a long time, so we value the relationships we have with them. We are a small independent business, focused on delivering solutions and improvements for our customers. We are approachable and open in our discussions and suggestions.Meet the team at Nivalis
