Pipeline cleanliness improves product quality, operating efficiency and mitigates debris-inflicted damage to plant such as compressors. From the day the pipeline is constructed it will need cleaning with pigs to remove weld slag, hydro test water and general construction debris such as welding rods. As a pipeline ages, debris such as scale, wax and other deposits will accumulate. Operational and product conditions that encourage corrosion can affect the useful life of the pipeline and affect system integrity.
Knowledge of what is in the pipe, the rate of debris deposition of debris, where the problems originate, together with an understanding of the general pipeline design is invaluable for developing an effective cleaning & maintenance program. Major failures can be avoided with regular maintenance.
Extreme Flow Pipeline Pigs
In large pipelines with ultra high velocities, operators are reluctant to reduce flows down for pigging, as this results in a reduction of revenue generating delivery. We have designed bypass pigs specifically for these circumstances which can react to changes in speed and automatically slow down or speed up.
New Pipeline Construction Cleaning
Inline Services manufactures pipeline pigs designed for new pipeline construction, cleaning and commissioning.
Liquid Removal Pigging
Corrosion is inevitable within a pipeline, however taking a proactive approach to preventative maintenance can save you thousands, if not millions of dollars in repair, replacement, or environmental clean-up costs.
Black Powder Pipeline Prevention
Inline Services has designed pipeline pigs that aid in both the prevention and removal of black powder.
Pipeline Wax Removal Pigs
Crude oil and gas condensates contain varying amounts of wax or paraffin.
Pipeline Corrosion Control Pigging
Inline provides a number of aggressive pigs for use in pipeline corrosion control, including brush designs to address pitting caused by bacterial corrosion.
Routine Pipeline Pigging Maintenance
Maintaining a routine pigging program will keep a pipeline in good condition, maintain optimal flow and reduce damage to plant and avoid eventual failures.
Pipeline ILI Pre Clean
We specialize in gathering intelligence about the internal condition of the pipeline and determining efficient maintenance programs.
