Automated Transfer Systems

A very popular product is our Automated Transfer System utilizing AB6 Pigging technology to recover the lost product in the product line. We've installed several systems from a simple single pigging line systems to a multiple line systems with complex flow panels and integrated CIP systems. Our systems are saving customers a lot of money with very short ROI.

Stages of the Transfer System

Watch a short video that goes through the different stages of a pigging system.

In this video you'll see

  • Selecting and deselecting the source tank

  • Starting a transfer from the source tank to the destination tank (hopper)

  • At the end of the transfer, the pigging system is started, pushing the pig with air.

  • Once the pig reaches the receiver, the pig is sent back to the launcher.

After the transfer and pigging, a CIP is needed.

In this video you'll see

  • Operator verifies that the hoses are connected in the correct location and the CIP chemicals are ready to be charged to the CIP tank.

  • CIP is started, which adds hot water to the CIP tank.

  • Once the CIP tank is full, the CIP solution is recirculated through the transfer lines. 

  • Depending on the CIP recipe the process will need to recirculate the CIP solutions through the lines for a set of time at a set temp and flow rate.
