Intelligent Cleaning of Pipelines
Pigging isn’t just an art. It is a combination of experience, appropriate technical design, knowledge of the pipeline, meticulous planning and management.
To keep a pipe clean will require regular maintenance therefore a pigging program will need to be designed.
Inline uniquely offers a complete range of services to compliment the supply of cleaning pigs.
Every pipeline and product it carries is different. Combinations of pipe size & age, product, velocity, temperature and endless other variables all give rise to a unique set of circumstances. To put together a cleaning plan or longer term maintenance program, knowledge of the design and operational information including any historical data for pigging, is essential. By carrying out further analysis of the pipeline, by running pigs with onboard electronics, the line can be cleaned and at the same time a complete evaluation of the condition and results recorded. This information is extremely important to have prior to running Intelligent Pigs.
To maintain the pipe in good condition an ongoing maintenance program can be implemented.
