Locating pigs with/Certainty
What is Pig Patrol?
An evolutionary shift in pipeline pig location and transit verification. Pig Patrol location method utilises a small sealed radioactive source that is designed specifically for each programme. It is contained and attached to each pig. This allows for accuracy of location within centimetres as well as verified transit during launch and receival. Pig Patrol is fixed to the external pipe location of interest to monitor the passage of each pig.
Question: When a pigging programme is planned what degree of certainty do you need when tracking the location and transit of every pig?
Answer: Whether to safeguard assets or to optimise efficiency, to meet regulatory compliance or for safety and environmental considerations pigging is crucial; knowing their location is an absolute.
Eliminate/the risk of lost pigs
Pig Patrol informs asset owners about their pipelines performance and condition to promote optimisation and availability. Delays and related costs incurred locating lost or stuck pigs can be onerous, these can also be reduced significant with the consistent and low risk reliability of Pig Patrol. The question to ask is -
