Articulated pigs are designed for negotiating wye connections, bridging line features and pigging around tight bends. This type of pig is also highly efficient in long run dewatering operations and can be used for heavy duty cleaning operations.
Once used only when considered essential, articulated pigs are a well-proven design with many years of successful use. Propipe uses articulated joint designs that exceed force expectations and provide guaranteed safe performance.
With the ever increasing need to tie-in marginal fields to one main trunkline, wye connections are becoming common. Articulated pigs offer safe solutions to pass through wyes, whilst still negotiating tight radius bends.
Propipe has several proven joint designs and has used these on sizes from 6” up to 48” and over distances in excess of 700 km.
