Pigging technology – the need for quality products

Recently BUTTING received its largest order in the company’s history to date in the field of pigging technology, from a German manufacturer of fittings for pigging systems. We were given the order to produce pipes and elbows according to DIN 2430 to complete a paint factory in India.

BUTTING will manufacture a total of more than 7 000 m of pipes and 230 elbows of material 1.4307. The processor of stainless steel will supply the piggable components in sizes from DN 40 to DN 100 by the end of this year at the latest.

Pigging technology has succeeded in establishing itself more and more in the chemical industry in recent years. “The benefits of piggable pipes speak for themselves: only very slight mixing in the paint area and a distinct reduction in expenditure on the cleaning process,” is how Gordon Behne, of Pipe Technology Sales, explains the increased use of piggable systems. There are very special requirements on the welded components of pigging technology: very small deviations in the internal diameter, minimal wall thickness tolerances, smooth surfaces and weld seams without elevations. As a manufacturer, BUTTING guarantees the implementation of these high quality requirements.
