    Product Recovery (Pigging) Case Study – Coca-Cola Enterprises

    About Coca-Cola Enterprises Sidcup Coca-Cola Enterprises Sidcup factory started production in 1961. Today, it employs around 280 staff,

    has six manufacturing lines and produces over 42 million cases of drinks every year. It produces

    many of the most popular Coca-Cola drinks including Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola Life, Coca-Cola Zero

    Sugar, Diet Coke, Dr Pepper, Sprite, Schweppes, Powerade, Lilt and Fanta.

    Project Background Coca-Cola Enterprises is one of the company’s largest bottlers in Europe, and their Sidcup facility in south-east London is their second biggest site in the UK. The company approached HPS to discuss using pigging to increase product yield, reduce effluent, speed up changeovers and improve product integrity during clean in place (CIP).

    Summary • HPS designed, supplied and implemented three fully-automatic pigging systems at

    Coca-Cola Enterprises, Sidcup, Kent, UK

    • The 2″ diameter systems deliver product from any one of four tanks to a filling machine

    • During clean in place and sterilisation all pigging system product contact surfaces are

    cleaned as part of the cycle

    • The systems resulted in a 4% increase in product yield

    • This equates to the equivalent of 48,000 extra cans per week of the popular soft drink

    • Using pigging also helps towards the company’s sustainability goals.

    Why Coca-Cola Enterprises Chose HPS as their Pigging Systems Provider HPS has a strong reputation as the world’s leading hygienic and sanitary pigging systems specialists, and has a proven track record of successful projects which deliver high return on investment (ROI), rapid payback, and that exceed their client’s expectations. In addition, HPS has worked with a wide variety of companies that manufacture soft drinks, juices and other beverages. These include other Coca-Cola processing and bottling plants in the UK and elsewhere. So, Coca-Cola knew they could rely on HPS to deliver high-quality, effective and reliable product recovery (pigging) solutions.

    The Solution HPS designed and supplied three Fully Automatic Filling Pigging Systems for Coca-Cola Enterprises in

    Sidcup, UK.

    The 2″ diameter systems deliver product from any one of four tanks to a filling machine. For

    example, canning Line 6 (150ml cans), transfers concentrated syrup from any one of four supply

    tanks. The design incorporated pigging from the last

    tank, past all other tanks to accommodate the

    flexibility of using any one of the four tanks to serve

    the line. Syrup is pigged into a balance tank which

    has high and low level sensors. Should the high

    level sensor activate during pigging the propellant

    behind the Pig, nitrogen in this case, is vented

    behind it. Once the low level signal is received the

    propellant is opened again to allow the pig to

    proceed (gently) to the balance tank.

    During clean in place and sterilisation, the pig, pig

    housing, launch valve and receive return station are

    cleaned as part of the cycle. The final rinse water is pigged out of the line so that the next syrup is

    transferred to the balance tank without any risk of dilution.

    The Results The primary aims of the project were to reduce product waste, increase yield, speed up product

    changeovers, and reduce effluent and other waste to help towards sustainability.

    The three pigging systems make significant product savings, and they have improved process efficiency and waste reduction through highly effective product recovery.

    Effluent is reduced because nearly all product is now canned and not lost to drain. Changeovers are much faster because there is no waiting on product to drain from the line. Product integrity is also improved because CIP water does not come in to contact with product at start up.

    Importantly, product yields have improved significantly and have shown an increase of approximately 4%. This is the equivalent of 48 000 extra cans per week.

    “The HPS systems resulted in a clear Increase in Product Yields, equating to 48 000 extra cans per week”
