Portable Pig Launchers

A cost effective, flexible and temporary means of pigging pipelines, particularly during pipeline construction.


The portable temporary pig launcher locks onto the outer surface of the pipeline, allowing it to be used on any pipeline of similar O/D regardless of wall thickness. Utilising posi-seal technology, the device can be installed and operated quickly using a set of tyres inflated with water. The tyres allow a greater tolerance for pipes that may be corroded or dented.
