Tracking a Pipeline Pig Through the Process
Traditionally, pipelines and pipe networks have always been difficult to investigate and to clean. That’s even been the case for relatively small jobs! However, pigging has come a long way across the years, meaning that our team here at Pigtek are always happy to help bring a variety of pipeline pig essentials and technology to businesses and brands across the globe. Pigging allows for ease of investigation, repair and fault finding – as well as ease of deep cleaning and debris removal. But what happens if you need to retrieve a pig at a later date?
Keep Your Pipeline Pig operation running smoothly
Pipeline pigging, over the years, has been a little trial and error in some cases. Therefore, we’ve needed to develop and produce more and more intensive and comprehensive tools to ensure our customers get exactly what they need from each pipeline pig deployment. Pigging is now at a stage where tech deployed down a pipeline can now be easily tracked and monitored without hassle – and we’re pleased to supply a wide range of pigging essentials which come with all the best bells and whistles attached.
We make use of both acoustic and above ground magnetic tracking to allow our customers to keep close tabs on their pigs at all times during their deployment processes. This means that we are always in a position to support you with a pipeline pig that can be easily spotted along a pipeline without need for any extra hassle or complicated investigation. Getting a pig stuck could mean extra delays and problems for you and your business in the short term – which is why it makes sense to get started with pipeline pig options that can be easily retrieved along the way.
The Importance of Tracking when Pipeline Pigging
Carefully monitoring your pipeline pigs makes perfect sense. You’ll want to be able to look for your pig if you are in the process of removing a hidden blockage or troublesome debris, and as such, keeping tabs on your device means you can easily intervene at a later date if you need to. Our operators will be able to help you track and locate your pigs used based on magnet and/or acoustic tracking technology, meaning that we’ve more or less removed the heavy guesswork for you. It’s hard to believe that there was ever a time when pipelines were easy to monitor without this technology!
