Lost or stuck pipeline pigs can result in extensive down time and significant additional expense.
For this reason, pigs are frequently monitored with pig detectors during launch and receipt and when passing points in a pipeline that are deemed to pose a risk such as a valve, river crossing or other feature.
This could be the case for all sizes and locations of pipelines regardless of whether managing a pipeline onshore or subsea, a buried pipeline, pipelines of varying wall thickness or a pipeline with geometric or operational challenges.
Pig detection may also be necessary from a remote location and as such effective data communication is vital.
Online’s range of non-intrusive pipeline pig detectors are easy to install and maintain with no welding or penetration required and no risk of interrupted production.
