What are Pipeline Pigs used for? 

    Pipeline Pigs (also known as Foam Pigs) can be used to clear debris and other solids from pipe walls or within the pipe itself. They can also be used to purge air from pipelines ahead of pressure testing, which ensures safe completion of the commissioning procedure.

    Typically, pigs are pushed through the pipeline using water or air, and captured at a designated point in the run. We can also supply Trackable Pipeline Pigs which can be traced through the pipeline using a Cable Avoidance Tool (CAT) and are an ideal solution for locating blockages without exposing an entire pipeline.

    Pipeline Pigs can be used in the water, construction, housing or energy sectors where pipeline integrity is important to site operations and safety.
