DCD (16-48″)

DCDdrawing pipeline pig apache pipeline products

Effective batching and separating capability is the name of the game for the Series DCD pig.
Every pig in the series is equipped with two sealing discs and two Series C Cups. These multiple sealing components
create a positive seal between dissimilar fluids, while simultaneously providing a bigger surface area. As a result, its
sealing capacity, and overall batching and separating capability is greatly improved.

Designed to negotiate 1.5D bends, the Series DCD pig moves reliably through piping systems.

Features & Benefits:

  • The DCD pig is configured to offer a sealing arrangement that is used to separate dissimilar fluids, and to lightly scrape pipelines during longer distance operations.
  • Every Apache DCD 16”- 48” pig is manufactured with by-pass ports. These ports feature threaded plugs that can be removed, should by-pass be required. By removing the by-pass plugs, a portion of product flow is redirected through these openings. The debris is suspended in the turbulent flow and transferred ahead of the pig.
  • Standard bumper noses cushion the pig and help to protect in-line auxiliary equipment, preventing damage.

Options Available:

  • Circular flange brushes or block brushes in the following types and trim materials:
    1. Trim types – flat wire or pencil.
    2. Trim material – carbon steel, stainless steel, plastic, or tin-coated.
  • Transmitter housing to accommodate electronic tracking equipment.
  • CARVER discs.
  • Aluminum gauge plates in slotted or standard styles.
  • Magnets can be used to either collect ferrous and other construction debris, or they can be used to provide a change in magnetic field required by non-intrusive pig signaler detection devices.
  • Rattlers.
