Pipeline Consulting Services

Pipeline pigging is necessary to keep your pipelines free of sediments and debris as well as prevent corrosion and leaks. Pigging regularly and correctly is essential for maintaining maximum flow of product, extending the life of the pipeline, and preventing environmental disaster. But while the benefits of pigging are clear, it’s not always obvious what type of pig should be used. There are many critical factors to be considered when selecting a pig. The physical characteristics of the pipeline, such as minimum bend radius, types of valves, and changes in pipeline diameter will determine the geometry of the pig. The contents of the line will determine what materials should be used, and will also indicate what types of sediment are present. The history of the line - knowing what types of pigs have been run, and how often they've been run (if ever) - will play an important role in developing a pigging program. Selecting the incorrect pig can have disastrous results.
