Optimal, rapid cleaning and prevention of cross-contamination, all this combined with high cost pressure in the food and pharmaceutical industries with ever smaller batch sizes, this is the reality of all manufacturer.

Only the use of pigging system allows you to safe money in production!

The URESH pigging system (patented, EHEDG certified), specially developed for hygienic and aseptic processes, offers an optimal, flexible and unique solution for the production process of liquid and pasty products. Loss-free product output from pipes, minimization of cleaning and production costs, product and process safety, as well as increased plant availability are some of the advantages offered by an URESH pigging system.

We have tailored our pigging symposium together with proven experts specifically for users from the hygienic food processing and pharmaceutical industries.
