Ice Pigging - an overview
Ice Pigging utilises the special properties of an ice slurry manufactured by Nivalis designed and built machinery. The ice that is produced has an additive to maintain the freezing point below zero (usually around -5 degrees Celsius). There are many options when it comes to this additive. This ice slurry is delivered to our customers' systems providing greatly enhanced cleaning, and allowing our manufacturing customers high product recovery rates.
In order for us to present the benefits of Ice Pigging that are specific to the customer, we need some information exchange. We can then calculate the volumes of ice required. Our ice flows as a liquid through bends and changes in diameter and valves and pumps, but we still need to know some information about the customers pipe layout.
Once we understand the benefits, we can then look to present what type of Ice Pigging solution best suits the needs of the customer.
