Given that anomalies are a fairly common feature of a pipeline, it’s reassuring that pigs mounted with Series M UT cups are engineered to elongate and can traverse pipeline anomalies of up to 20% without damaging the pig. This means that runs go as planned, without delay.
To enhance the cup life, conical cups are available with a variety of wear-resistant additives. In fact, Apache developed a proprietary chemical resistant urethane to help protect against conditions, such as hydrogen sulphide, encountered in severe environments.
