Multiple durometers are also available for specific applications. Cups and discs can be made out of urethane, neoprene and nitrile. The cups and discs are available in a full range of diameters up to 56". 

 

 

Brushes are used for cleaning the interior of the pipeline where wax, sand, paraffin, sludge, mud, millscale or debris are present. Drinkwater Products provides a full assortment of brushes to fit steel-mandrel and solid-cast pigs. Brushes are generally carbon steel flat wire. Stainless steel and prostran are available upon request.

Urethane blades provide the tough scraping action necessary to remove soft internal deposits.

Gauging plates are used for checking out-of-round pipes, dents or anomalies in the line. The most common material used is aluminum but steel is also available. For added information, slots can be cut into the plate to allow for better knowledge of the damaged area. Gauge plates can be made to any requested OD and to fit any steel body bolt hole circle pattern.

Magnets are often mounted on the body of the pig to pick up any metallic debris that might be in the pipeline. Drinkwater Products offers several varieties of magnets that can be fitted to most pigs.

Drinkwater Products can design pig baskets to your specifications. These pig baskets catch pigs as they enter the receiver barrel and help prevent the pigs from going down your bypass line.

Drinkwater Products sizing rings are built from lightweight, durable aluminum. The inside diameter is machined to a specified size to allow the operator to easily check and reproduce the proper inflation sizing of pipeline and prover spheres for use.

At the time of an order, the customer will need to furnish the nominal pipe inside diameter and percentage interference. For example a 8" Standard Wall Pipe = 7.981” ID, with a 3% interference, yields a desired sizing ring diameter of 8.22”. Or, if the actual internal diameter of the ring is known, the finished part can be cut to the specified size.

Sizing rings are available for the full range of inflatable spheres.

Pipeline Pigging Dust Bags eliminate environmental pollution arising from pigging a pipeline with nitrogen or air by catching pipeline pigs, dust particles, mill scale and other construction debris. The dust bags can contain objects as small as 5 microns. The heavy-duty polyester felt has good abrasion resistance and is secured around the discharge pipe with a draw-string type closure.

PigginPoles (standard set) consist of three sections pinned together for a total length of 18'. One end of the pole has a four-inch round ram, making it easy to seat the pig, and the other end has a hook for easy pig retrieval. Optional handle makes handling the pigs even easier.
