The Series UC3 pig is another great example of how Apache provides the pipeline industry with tools that get the job
Let’s face it, during the contruction phase, it can be a messy business, so it’s important that the pipeline interior be
kept clean throughout the process. Apache developed the Series UC just for this purpose. The Series UC is primarily
used for light cleaning during the construction phase and can be used in all phases of pipeline cleaning.
At times it’s necessary to clean a line more rigorously, which requires additional cups. With this in mind, the
Series UC is available in three versions. The two-cup design of the UC2 pig provides a basic level of light cleaning
capability. With each additional cup, the Series UC pig cleans more rigorously. Therefore, the UC3 three-cup and
UC4 four-cup design pigs are progressively more powerful cleaning tools. They are used to lightly clean pipelines,
and are typically used for longer distances.
Designed to negotiate minimum 1.5D and greater bends, the UC3 pig moves reliably through piping systems.
Features & Benefits:
- Every Series UC pig is equipped with Apache Series C cups. As with all of Apache products, the Series C cup was specifically developed to perform, efficiently and reliably. To enhance durability, it’s made from Reliathane, Apache’s special blend of wear-resistant polyurethane.
- The large wearing surface of the cup promotes longer life, while product pressure holds the cutting edge firmly against the pipe wall.
