Benefits of Pipeline Pigging
There are many benefits to Pipeline Pigging. Beginning with efficient and cost-effective means that removes foreign matter, loose debris, or corrosion products. In addition to removing harmful matter, this process is ideal for pipe flow integrity, which improves pipeline carrying capability and product recovery that minimizes waste. Pigging Services are performed on large bore and long distance piping systems using an assortment of pigs with exterior coatings such as wire brushes, to abrasives, polyurethane or soft foam. During the process, chemical cleaning chemistry and techniques are applied to the pigging process to remove heavy accumulation of oxidation, bioburdens or organic contamination. This Hydraulic or Pneumatic pressure then propels the Pigs through a system scouring the ID of the pipe walls, thus removing debris and accumulating trapped materials. Furthermore, tracking devices are also available to document position and speed of moving pigs.
