Acu-Tech sells a large range of related HDPE pipe ancillaries, including Foam PIGs. A PIG in pipeline terms refers to a ‘Pipeline Intervention Gadget’, which passes through a pressurised pipeline to clean out the inside. The flexible foam construction allows PIGs to negotiate tight bends, reducers, valves and pipe of different dimensions.
Foam PIGs are used after the pipeline is fully sealed, to remove sand, dust, debris, welding shavings, and other contaminants which are inside the pipeline. This removes the environmental risk of contamination entering into the water system. By regularly sending PIGs along your pipeline, you can potentially increase the pipeline carrying capacity, reduce pump pressure and therefore power requirements. PIGs also give confirmation of pipe and flow integrity, and reduce contamination when an old pipeline is reused after being out of service.
