Abstract

This work presents an innovative technology that uses water ice to clean water conductions: Ice Pigging. This technology has been developed by University of Bristol during 10 years, having been applied successfully, in collaboration with Bristol Water.

Ice Pigging is a rapid and simple technology that improves other conventional technologies applied thanks to the facility of use, cost reductions, a more efficient result and a low interruption of supply to clients.
