New pigging installation at Akzo Nobel Baltics AS

Akzo Nobel Baltics AS, located in Rapla/Estonia, produces, among others, paints and varnishes for lumber preservation.

Recently three pigging lines DN50 were installed that connect the product storage area with the filling area.
The main goals were to considerably reduce the amount of cleaning water to be treated in the sewage treatment plant and to avoid cross contamination issues between different products.

I.S.T. Molchtechnik GmbH delivered the piggable valves, flanged piggable pipe sections as well as the main electrical cabinet, local remote operating panels and the software.

Testing and commissioning took place in December 2023 and the pigging lines are now operating in the day-to-day business. 

We thank Akzo Nobel Baltics AS for the friendly partnership in this project and the permission to publish this project summary.
