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.
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.
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.
Features & Benefits:
- Lightweight – no metal components.
- Can be launched in most common pigging valves.
- Standard hollow core to house an electronic transmitter.
