In the food and beverage industry, pigging refers to the practice of using devices known as ‘pigs’ to perform various maintenance operations on a pipeline, such as cleaning and inspecting. Many traditional systems use a standard pig (or pipeline inspection gauge) that’s forced through piping systems to scour any residual product from the inner walls of the pipes to recover product and prior to cleaning. At FDT, Steffen Rathmann, worldwide sales director for GEA Process Engineering, juice and beverage industry, introduced the company’s innovative new pigging technology called Eco-Icepush.
