Is there any way to remove residual product left in pipes after a batch operation?

 OEG Company in Osaka, Japan commercialized a device called Pushkun that runs through pipes and “pushes” out left over product. The system is particularly valuable in batch operations where product recovery is chief concern. The manufacturer claims that at one installation, the system paid for itself in four months through product recovery. System costs depend on the scale of the system, but are typically around $10,000 US (1998).

Yes good question sir, at my work place we use steam if residual content related to product and if it is only residual mass means we use methanol as washing solvent.

If there is any other process please note it in comment below thankyou.
