Pipeline pigging lengthens the life of your pipelines
No pipelines last forever, no matter what you may put through them – whether you are supplying oil, water, or other product – and it is essential that all pipelines are inspected and maintained regularly both for safety and for business reasons – after all, a pipeline that does not provide product efficiently and safely is hardly going to be worthy of the customer’s interest at the other end of the chain. Maintaining a pipeline – ensuring that it was free from rust, internal debris, cracks, blockages or other erosion – used to be a fairly difficult process, certainly for longer or more complex pipe networks, where it was often impossible to detect where problems may have been occurring without dedicating much time, effort and wasted revenue. With the dawn of pipeline pigging, however, the process now runs a whole lot smoother.
Types of Pigs
Pipeline pigs can be used to maintain and monitor pipe networks in a wealth of different ways – not only can they be used to eradicate short-term problems, but they can also be utilised to help plot, plan and arrange for long-term treatments and analysis. If you are experience regular blockages, regular pigging will not only remove the offending debris, but can also identify why such blocking is occurring so often. Similarly, smart pigs – custom designed and built to analyse pipeline intricacies and problems further down the network – come in handy for ensuring that you can prolong the life of your pipes for as long as possible. After all, a pipeline that only works well in the short term is hardly going to be worth time and money invested. Pigging looks down the pipes to make sure everything is ticking over as it should be – meaning that it provides one less hassle and far less expense in the long term.
