Cleaning pipe lines with ice

One of the more recent development in the applications of ice is Ice Pigging. Aqualogy (, the exclusive provider and developer of this technology, has a network of licensed partners, providing this service all around the globe. Ice Pigging is a highly effective and low risk pipe line cleaning technology. The Netherlands has about 117.000 kilometers of drinking water pipelines, which have to be cleaned from time to time. With ice pigging, a combination of water and ice is pumped into the pipe and forced along inside in order to remove sediments and unwanted deposits. It combines the benefits of the two traditional methods, flushing with water and forcing a solid object trough the pipe, without any of the drawbacks. Recom’s ice machines are perfectly capable of producing the right type of ice for this technique and together with the customer, we engineer the perfect solution for every situation.
