The new pigging station enables LINEG’s managers to inspect and clean the installed pipeline from the top of the terrain with a pig. All this is made possible by one of the most modern pigging stations, which allows those responsible for sustainable water management to protect both the environment and the budget at the same time.

In Glattfelden, a problem with deposits in the pipes has arisen. Patrick Frei, the municipality’s wastewater treatment supervisor in charge, decided to clean the pressure pipe and relies on the gentle pigging process. The biggest problem with pigging is that the pig has to be inserted into the pipeline, which means that the existing pipeline has to be dismantled and opened. This is a laborious process, which Frei was able to improve significantly with the Quick-Pig pig trap.
The Quick-Pig pig trap requires significantly less coordination and fewer trades compared to a manhole solution. This allows for minimally invasive integration into pipeline systems, even at a later date. And for the operator, the Quick-Pig scores with very safe working from the top of the ground.

Pigging a pipeline must become easier and safer! Without a complex manhole, without time-consuming ventilation of the manhole, directly from the street, made of PE 100 and corrosion-free. With these requirements, Hamburg’s municipal drainage system (now Hamburg Wasser) approached Reinert-Ritz GmbH from Nordhorn. The fittings manufacturer developed a station that enables fast, safe pigging without a manhole and has been used successfully in various projects to date.
