Coated Foam Pigs

Coated Foam Pigs

Type

Coated foam pigs are used for regular wiping and general cleaning.  Medium Density foam pigs are generally used. The pigs are constructed from an open-cell polyurethane foam with a durable polyurethane elastomer coating in a variety of patterns and finishes.

Coated Foam - Criss Cross - Coated foam pigs are used for regular wiping and general pipeline cleaning. Models are available in light, medium, and heavy density foam. The pigs are constructed from an open-cell polyurethane foam with a durable polyurethane elastomer coating in a variety of patterns with criss-cross being the most common.

Plastic Bristle - Plastic bristle foam pigs are used for cleaning plastic pipes (PVC, fibreglass, HDPE) as well as internally coated steel pipe. The bristles are aggressive enough to clean most buildups, but not harmful to the pipe’s integrity. Models are available in light, medium, and heavy density foam. The pigs are constructed from an open-cell polyurethane foam with a durable polyurethane elastomer coating in a criss-cross pattern and embedded with plastic bristle straps.

Wire - Used for maximum cleaning applications for build-up removal. More abrassive types such as Hard Scale used for the heaviest types of cleaning applications, such as fly ash, encrusted salt crystals, and solidified sulfur.

Silicon Carbide - Silicon carbide foam pigs are used for cleaning lines with high-level hardness buildup as well as rust and mill scale. The abrasive compound can be in loose grit form or in a heavy-duty strap. Models are available in light, medium, and heavy density foam. The pigs are constructed from an open-cell polyurethane foam with a durable polyurethane elastomer coating in a criss-cross pattern and silicon carbide material in loose grit or strap form.

Foam Disc Pigs - Foam disc pigs are an excellent pig for all types of batching and product removal applications. Models are available in medium and heavy density foam. The unique design offers multiple discs for unsurpassed sealing capabilities. Alternate variations of this pig include rear sealing cup, as well as special lengths and diameters for unique applications, including dual-diameter.

Stud - Our "Stud" or Decoking Pig removes the hardest coke and encrustations from the pipe making it a great choice for pipeline cleaning. The tungsten steel studs scrape or break the coke layers loose while the water flows around the pig to create a low / high pressure turbulence. This action flushes loosened deposits from the cleaning studs ahead of the pig. 

 

3 Density Grades Available:

  • Light @ 15Kg/M3
  • Medium @ 80Kg/M3
  • Heavy Density @ 128Kg/M3
