Isolation Plug Positioning

CHALLENGE SOLUTION

The operator of an oil line had a requirement to replace a 36” gate valve on a valve station.  The clearance between the overall length of the plug and the flange faces of the two valves was extremely tight at just over 4” total, meaning the plug had to be positioned within 2”.


Online Electronics proposed the use of the ID5000 ACTIVE Ultrasonic ATEX topside pig signaller /locator to give an indication of pig’s location.
