Why does the Defence sector use Ice Pigging?
Ice Pigging is a quicker technique than the alternatives, it is safer and offers a "step change" in system cleanliness. It is cost effective, uses less water and is a transferrable technology which lends itself to be utilised in a number of different environments.
We have applied Ice Pigging in the Defence sector on an array of systems:
- Fresh water systems,
- Sea water systems,
- Fuel systems,
- Aviation fuel systems,
- Air systems.
WES - our partner for In-Harbour Chlorination (IHCR) applications.
WES are a long established process engineering company. The WES In-harbour chlorination rigs (IHCR’s) provide a single-unit containerised solution for control of microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC).
In-Harbour Chlorination is the standard operating procedure mandated by DefStan 02-781 to disinfect submarine reactor secondary sea water cooling systems (SWC) to prevent micro-biological fouling (leading to microbiologically induced corrosion—MIC) and macro fouling (partial or complete blocking).
