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 abrasive types such as Hard Scale used for the heaviest types of cleaning applications, such as fly ash, encrusted salt crystals, and solidified sulfur.

Foam pigs are extremely functional pigs designed to be used for pipeline cleaning, scraping or drying. A Foam Pig with polyurethane coating can be used for dewatering a short pipeline. The design consists of a flexible, bullet shaped polyurethane foam cylinder and the rear is concave to allow more pressure to be exerted. This creates a tighter seal against the pipe wall and helps prevent by-pass of the propelling agent, eliminating product contamination.
