That ’s because HPS has a proven track record of successful projects which deliver high return on investment (ROI), rapid payback, and that exceed client’s expectations. In addition, HPS has specialised in process pigging since 1995 and has worked with a wide variety of companies t hat manufacture food ingredients, beverages, chemicals, and so on. Asked why CP Kelco chose HPS, Tyson commented, “HPS ha d expertise in our product segment and demonstrated an understanding of what design elements were required for cGMP facilities. They were able to demonstrate their equipment to our technical team by facilitating a site visit with a customer with similar req uirements to ours.” The Solution Working closely with CP Kelco, HPS designed, supplied, implemented, and commissioned a single - pig pigging system. The bespoke pigging solution recovers up to 99.5% of product from the pipeline. If it wasn’t for pigging, th is usable product would be discarded as waste. Like most HPS pigging solutions, the system is fully automatic, meaning the HPS pig is sent and returned using PLC control. Special HPS pig - detection technology ensures accurate and reliable pig location and subsequent control by the HMI/PLC. The pigging system is fully compliant with cGMP.

They wanted to incorporate liquid product recovery (pigging) in to their process. The length between the processing areas is 900 feet . Therefore, the company estimated that if they didn’t have a pigging system , they would lose roughly 1200 gallons of useable product each cycle . CP Kelco had used pigging before, but not a system provided by HPS, and the system had been demolished over 10 years ago due to changing business conditions. The previous system was a manual one - way system, where operat ors would have to remove the pig from the receiver and bring it back to the launcher. The footprints of the launch and receive stations were also q uite large, taking up valuable workspace. So , Tyson Richart, Engineering Manager at CP Kelco , approached HPS to discuss using process pigging to recover usable product, instead of sending it to waste. They also wanted to use pigging t o improve their manufacturing and production processes. It was critical that the pigging system was fully compliant with c urrent Good Manufacturing Practices or “cGMP” . Tyson explained , “The previous pig system was a one - way system with a city water propelled launcher an d a receiver at the other processing area. At the conclusion of the pig transfer, operators would have to remove the pig from the receiver and bring it back to the launcher”. “The length between the processing areas is 900 feet and it was estimated that ab out 1200 gallons of product would be lost without a pigging system.” CP Kelco, San Diego, California, USA

S ummariz ing the project , Tyson said : “Overall, the project was a success. The lead time of HPS was about half of their competitors which allowed us to get the system up and operational to meet our business needs. HPS provided technical support in a timely fashion to help ensure issues were resolved quickly and that the system had flexibility for future potential changes.” When asked if he would recommend HPS to other companies, Tyson replied : “Yes. HPS was able to help us customize our design based upon our processes. They worked hand in hand with us to help us understand the trade - offs of the different design elements.”

HPS provided a full service – from design and supply of a system to implementation, commissioning, and customer support. When commissioning was complete, HPS engineers ensured employees under stood how the system worked and were fully aware on how to operate and maintain the equipment properly and safely . The Results The primary aims of the project were to increase product yields and reduce product losses. The pigging system recovers up to 99.5% of product from the pipeline. If it wasn’t for pigging, this product would be wasted. Because the HPS system is bi - directional, it enables CP Kelco to experiment with different cleaning techniques of the pipeline , since they have different utilities present in each of the processing areas. Tyson commented, “We have been able to recover all the product from the pipeline as we had anticipated. The bi - directional system has allowed us to experiment with different cleaning techniques of the pipeline since we have different utilities present in each of the processing areas.” In addition to recovering massive amounts of product, the HPS solution is flexible, and extremely space efficient. Tyson explained, “Our previous experience was with pig systems that had launchers and receivers with large footprints. The HPS system is compact and lightweight which allows us to consider this system in areas where we previously did not have space.”
