Case Study:
Pigging of Slurry Pipeline

Pigging of Slurry Pipeline

iNPIPE PRODUCTS™ was approached to look at progressive cleaning of an 8” mine slurry pipeline used for transporting rock waste with water and cement to refill areas of the mine following ore extraction. Below ground refill being substantially less expensive than above ground disposal and much more environmentally friendly.

Previous line blockages had interrupted production and the pipeline had been cleaned in short sections using expensive water jetting.

Bespoke tools were designed, manufactured and supplied by iNPIPE PRODUCTS™.
