Advantages of using LEWA packages for pigging applications:
Pigging applications and service tasks in oil and gas industry
“Pigging” is a process in which highly viscous fluids are conveyed out of pipelines. The pig is a cleaning device that is pumped through the pipeline under pressure. Thus, contaminations are conveyed out of the piping.
In the oil and gas industry, usually pipelines with large diameters are in use. There, the pigging technology is not only needed for cleaning tasks. Furthermore, pigs with on-board cameras, ultrasonic or measurement technology are needed to verify the corrosion status of the piping for example. Additionally, some pigs are simply used to physically separate different fluids flowing through the pipeline.
LEWA offers customized packages which are designed for these so-called service tasks in oil and gas industry.
