Product recovery systems are used for the ejection of viscous / flowing products from pipelines without mixing with any other media. This is especially required for high quality products in the food and beverages industries, as well as, pharmaceutical and personal and health care industries.
The pigging process can be implemented with different degrees of automation. That is why the portfolio of GEA Tuchenhagen offers three different product recovery systems:
1. Automatic product recovery systems
Due to the complete automation of the process, the pig can push out and be cleaned without manual action. The entire process takes place solely in the pipeline.Special features
2. Semi-automatic product recovery systems In contrast to the automatic product recovery systems, with the semi-automatic product recovery systems the pig is inserted and removed manually. Pushing out of product and returning of the pig then takes place automatically.
3. Manual product recovery systems In the manual product recovery system, the pig is manually inserted into the pipeline and at the end removed manually. The pig runs in only one direction.
