Types of Cleaning Pigs
Magnet Brush Cleaning Tools (MBCT)
used to clean the pipelines using strong and flexible steel brushes supported by powerful magnets to improve cleaning performance.
Profile Tools (PR)
equipped with Aluminium discs to identify any critical obstruction in the pipeline to ensure the inspection tools can be run safely.
Bidi Brush Cleaning Tools (BBCT)
used to clean the pipelines using strong and flexible brushes. These pigs are equipped also equipped with polyurethane guiding and sealing discs configured in a manner allowing pigging operations in case the flow is reversed.
Cup Brush Pig (CBT)
equipped with steel brushes supported by springs and softer polyurethane cups. Used for lighter duty cleaning purposes being also more flexible tool.
Bidi Cleaning Tools (BCP)
general purpose cleaning tools equipped with polyurethane guiding and sealing discs configured in a manner allowing pigging operations in case the flow is reversed.
Scrapper Cleaning Tools (SCT)
used for heavy-duty cleaning of pipeline inner surface, normally from scale or solid mineralized sediments. These pigs are equipped with scrapper steel blades.
Batching Pigs (BP)
function as moving seals in a pipeline to separate two different products into batches for transportation in the same pipeline. Various design solutions are available.
Cup Pigs (CP)
supported and driven by cups made of a resilient material such as neoprene or polyurethane. At least one of the cups forms a piston-like seal inside the pipeline.
Foam Pigs (FP)
produced from polyurethane foam with a coating of various types. These tools are compressible, expandable, lightweight, and flexible. Foam pigs can negotiate multiple diameter pipelines, abrupt bends and practically any possible pipeline obstructions. They are used normally for pipeline proving and initial cleaning. Various coatings and PU densities are available.
Heavy Duty Magnet Brush Tools (HDMBT)
used to perform challenging cleaning tasks such as removal of black powder from gas lines. These tools are specially designed to travel long distances picking up large quantities of debris by brushes and magnets and carrying them to a receiver.
Bidi Magnet Cleaning Tools (BMCT)
designed in the manner similar to general BiDi tools enhanced with permanent magnets to pick up ferrous debris.
