If your business or public operation depends on delivering product via pipes to your customers, you may already know some of the hassles of maintaining a pipe network. To be able to get clean produce to your clients time and time again, you are going to need to ensure that your pipes are doing the job they are set up to do. That is, to reliably let liquid or gas filter through without interruption. However, pipeline maintenance is essential if you want to continue supplying a fantastic service to your customers.

Pipeline CleaningRegular Inspections

Pigtek supply pipeline pigs, trackers and accessories to help ensure you can keep on top of your pipe network. Previously, it was incredibly difficult to tell whether or not pipelines needed cleaning, repairing, or replacing altogether. With the advent of tracking technology and bespoke pig design, we’ve been able to help firms make sure their lines are completely clear, clean and free from any issues.

The key to keeping a pipeline well-maintained is to ensure that it is regularly inspected. A pipeline inspection may be something as simple as a dry run for a pig, or to track a bespoke pig as it travels along your network. If it isn’t travelling fast enough, or if it doesn’t emerge at the other end of the chain, you know that you will need to take further action.

Why You Should Always Undertake Pipeline Maintenance

If you fail to look after your pipes, you are going to run the risk of your product sticking along the way. Dirt, debris, sludge and breakages on the line can all impact on how quickly your product can be delivered. If it isn’t delivered on time, or at the capacity your clients require, you are going to be letting them down. This is going to be a black mark on your reputation, and one which may well push custom down.

Do be careful to undertake a full pipeline inspection every so often. There doesn’t even need to be any existing problems with your line. In our collective opinion, it is healthy for a business to make sure that their pipes are clean, clear and fit for purpose.

What’s more, failure to properly maintain a pipeline could lead to cross-contamination of product being delivered. For example, if you are providing clean water, you are going to need to make sure that there is nothing hiding in the pipes. That includes anything which could potentially harm anyone drinking at the other end. Once again, failure to act could have a large knock-on effect on your reputation. No matter what you do, this isn’t ever going to be something you want to risk.
