PIPELINE PIGS
All Urethane

Apache Pipeline Products manufactures several versions of all urethane pigs for purging, cleaning or displacement and batching of different products. They are made from high quality Reliathane and have no metal parts. They are flexible, light-weight pigs that provide maximum cleaning of pipelines and are able to traverse tees and full opening valves.

PURGER

PURGER I™ SOLID CAST 2 – 36″ (51 – 914 MM)

The Purger™ Series pig is an incredibly tough, all-urethane pipeline pig that requires absolutely no maintenance and is an excellent pig for product evacuation. The Purger I™ is an extremely efficient batching, cleaning and displacement pig. Its multi-disc design ensures that sealing elements are always centered in the pipeline, resulting in consistent wear over time.

Designed to negotiate 1.5D bends, the Purger I™ moves reliably through complex lines.

PURGER VP VALVE PIG 2″ – 12″ (51 – 305 MM)

Looking for a way to optimize your pipeline maintenance program? Apache has the answer. It’s called the Purger VP™, and it’s the latest addition to the Purger™ Series of solid-cast urethane pigs. The “VP” stands for “valve pig.” This means that it is specially designed so that it can be launched and received by nearly any pigging valve on the market today. As it moves steadily through the line, clearing away troublesome debris and residue, rest assured that the line is being thoroughly cleaned, and the Purger VP will arrive in the receiver on schedule.

Designed to negotiate 1.5D bends, the Series Purger VP™ moves reliably through piping systems.

HURRICANE

HURRICANE LP LEAD PIG 3″ – 12″ (76 – 305 MM)

SEE HOW IT WORKS

Stop corrosion in its tracks. That’s what we set out to do when we developed the Hurricane LP-FP double-pig train method. As every pipeline engineer knows, coating the interior of the line with a quality corrosion inhibitor is one of the best ways to keep it from corroding. The challenge? How to apply inhibitor in a controlled manner.

THE LP ROLE
The Hurricane Lead Pig (LP) acts as the lead pig of a double-pig train. It carries inhibitor or biocide treatment, allowing minimal by-pass. The inhibitor is contained between the LP and the Hurricane Filming Pig (FP) pig. As the train moves through the line, the FP leaves a film of inhibitor on the pipe wall. Similar in appearance to the Hurricane Filming Pig, the Hurricane LP is manufactured with 72 durometer urethane and has a rear hollow cavity. The Hurricane LP-FP method: the ideal solution for controlled, efficient pipe wall filming.

Designed to negotiate 1.5D bends, the Lead Pig moves reliably through piping systems.

HURRICANE FP FILMING PIG 3″ – 12″ (76 – 305 MM)

SEE HOW IT WORKS

Stop corrosion in its tracks. That’s what we set out to do when we developed the Hurricane LP-FP double-pig train method. As every pipeline engineer knows, coating the interior of the line with a quality corrosion inhibitor is one of the best ways to keep it from corroding. The challenge? How to apply inhibitor in a controlled manner.

THE FP ROLE
The design of the dual-durometer Hurricane FP is truly unique. It features a hollow front mandrel with two port holes in the center of the mandrel. This allows the inhibitor to travel to the front hollow mandrel and through the two port holes on either side of the mandrel. The inhibitor is then trapped between the front conical cup, and back two soft discs to leave a film of inhibitor on the pipe wall. The Hurricane LP-FP method: the ideal solution for controlled, efficient pipe wall filming.

Designed to negotiate 1.5D bends, the Filming Pig moves reliably through piping systems.

TORNADO

TORNADO I (2″ – 4″) (51 – 102 MM)

Never underestimate the tiny Tornado I. Its compact size is a must for cleaning small diameter pipelines. The fieldproven Tornado I effectively cleans small diameter lines, such as those found in crude oil gathering systems. Time and time again, flow rates rise after being cleaned with a Tornado I. How is this possible? The unique cup design permits this pig to travel through short radius bends. The Tornado I is designed for use in both non-metallic pipe and steel lines. Its strength lies in proving a line in a pipe network prior to operational pigging, as opposed to clearing solids or aggressive cleaning.
