Pigging Solutions

A pigging system is a closed, self-cleaning piping system that transfers both liquid and solid bulk products between points in a process. A pigging pipeline is cleaned in place by using a pig, a cylindrical device with wiping features slightly bigger than the inside of the pipe. As the pig moves through the pipeline, its wiping features cleanse the pipe’s inner walls. Pigs are typically made from elastomers that are resistant to the products being transferred.

Petrak Industries, Inc. provides efficient pigging solutions that transfer multiple products within one pipeline with little product loss and no cross-contamination. Just one Petrak pigging pipeline can lower pipeline-building costs by replacing several system pipelines without compromising production schedules and product quality.

Fully automated and easy to use, a Petrak pigging system with built-in pipeline cleaning controls the pigging sequence by tracking the pig’s location in the line. You no longer have to flush a pipeline to clean it before transferring a product, which can lean to line-flush build-up. Petrak piggable transfer systems leave minimal residue in the pipe and eliminate spillage in the plant.
