The Speed Control Pig (SCP) Tool is designed to clean high velocity pipelines without costly interruptions in the flow of the line. The SCP will effectively clean pipelines without the need to sacrifice reliable gas delivery to the downstream client base or losing transportation revenue by reducing normal gas flow volumes or gas velocity. This pig is a smart cleaning tool that can provide a vehicle or platform on which to accomplish other tasks. It can be used to focus inspection resources where they are needed. SCP tool is an integrated pipeline cleaning and inspection tool on which sensors can be mounted to monitor changes in operating conditions and gather other useful data points.
– Transmitter for ease of tool tracking
– Dual odometers for accurate distance measurement to points of interest
– Data logger records pipeline slope, pressure, temperature and tool orientation
– IMU (inertial measurement unit) detects roll, pitch, yaw, and vibration
