About: Articulated Pigs

Other potential deciding factors influencing pig design can be the amount of pig tracking equipment required; batteries necessary for location transmission can increase pig body size to the point where two modules can be required.

iNPIPE PRODUCTS™ has developed significant experience and a multitude of articulated pig body designs to overcome the pipeline feature constraints and provide the client with proven and durable solutions.

Clearly the design of the articulation joint and fixings relative to the pig body modules is critical and all designs are fully load tested to ensure safe and reliable performance; failure of articulation or fixing could result in modules separating and blocking the pipeline catastrophically.

Over the last 30 years the company has designed, tested and supplied a full range of articulated cup or disc pigs from as small as 6” up to 36” incorporating magnet pigs, gauging pigs, brush cleaning pigs and pin-wheel studded pigs together with the specified tracking and location methods.

Experience has proved that careful consideration is required with regard to weight and weight distribution to ensure that equal drive is always achieved, particularly with articulated pig design. Weight distribution is also critical to maintain sealing and to prevent seal damage or excessive uneven wear.
