Apache Pipeline Products distributes soluble pipeline pigs that are designed to clean out paraffin deposits and other unwanted accumulations that decrease flow in your pipeline.
Soluble pigs are available for both oil systems (oil soluble) and water systems (water soluble). The pigs will dissolve in your oil tank or water tank so there are no disposal problems.
The number of pigs to be used is based on:
THE LENGTH OF PIPE
AMOUNT OF ACCUMULATION
TEMPERATURE OF FLUIDS
AND OTHER FACTORS
|SIZE||SCH. 40||SCH. 80||CASE QTY|
The advantage of the ball pig is its ability to go around 90 degree turns that may cause rubber or plastic to become stuck.
The soluble pigs are very inexpensive when compared to conventional pigs or hot-oil treatments.
The oil soluble pigs come in both solid ball form or a cylinder shaped plug.
The water soluble pigs also come in a solid ball or a cylinder shaped plug. They contain a water soluble surfacant and corrosion inhibitor.
