Cleaning the Pipes

Whilst pipelines come in all shapes and sizes, so can pigging equipment – and one of the main reasons we are approached for business is to ensure that pipe networks can be thoroughly cleaned and inspected.  A clean pipeline is one which is safe and efficient to use – one which will allow product to flow freely and to the end user without risk to their health and to their expectations.  Every pipeline or network, no matter how long or complex, should be regularly pigged – and we have the custom design solutions to always ensure that businesses have the right tools and techniques to do so.

Magnetic Cleaning Pig Benefits

Magnetic cleaning pigs are particularly useful at making sure that a pipeline is thoroughly cleaned and cleared, and there are several reasons for this.  Standard cleaning pigs are ideal for small jobs or for those which require only a minor sweep through – whereas our more intensive magnetic models will really go the extra mile to ensure that anything and everything left behind is scooped up and taken out of the equation.  Magnetic cleaning pigs are fantastic aids to pipelines in need of thorough cleaning, or those which may have metal or ferrous debris clogging the way – these could range from leftover welding rods or unnecessary leftovers from construction.  You may even find that pipelines corrode over time – or that certain items have left unhelpful deposits along the way.


Debris Removal

No matter the need or reason, magnetic cleaning pigs are high-powered debris removal experts – a simple pig launch will ensure that even the most difficult of metal deposits and more besides are picked up and captured for disposal at the other end of the pipe.  Magnetic cleaning pigs offer, arguably, a more thorough and intensive clean than standard pigging techniques, and are particularly recommended for any pipelines at risk of heavy soiling, debris or leftover material.  This is thanks to their increased magnetic field, which will allow them to attract and collect nuisance objects as they efficiently travel throughout the pipeline.
