Why Choose Rawhide Leasing for Natural Gas Pipeline Pigging

Over time, gas pipelines age and develop issues that can affect the flow of gas from the supplier to the customer. If you want to ensure your pipeline systems remain safe and efficient, consider natural gas pipeline pigging

What Is Natural Gas Pipeline Pigging?

Pipe efficiency depends on the condition of your lines. When pipes start to corrode or clog with dirt and debris, you may have a slowdown in gas transmission.

Pipeline pigging makes use of bullet-shaped devices, known as pigs, to scrub the insides of a pipeline and push debris along. This maintenance tool can also check the condition of pipes and catch problems, such as metal loss and deformation, before they worsen. 

Natural gas pipeline pigging involves the insertion of a pig by means of a pig trap, which consists of a launcher and receiver. The pig is pushed through the launcher and moves along the pipe until it arrives at the receiving station, where you can collect unwanted residue. There is normally no need to interrupt product flow in the pipe as this process takes place.

How Pipeline Pigging Can Benefit You

Pipeline pigs make sure your pipe is free from debris that may cause reduced performance and higher energy costs. Detecting signs of corrosion early on can help prevent cracks and leaks in your pipeline. 

Regular maintenance and monitoring with the help of natural gas pipeline pigging ensure steady product flow and optimal performance. If you start to notice issues like a decrease in product volume, it may be time for pipeline pigging.
