Argus has long been recognized as the industry leader in pigging valves, with products used in oil and gas pipelines in countries around the world.
Argus ball vales and pigs have bi-directional capabilities, and allow the use of pigs from other manufacturers. The pigs range in size from 2" (DN50) to 6" (DN400) with pressure ratings ranging from 150-1500 ANSI.
Advantages of Pipeline Pigging With Argus
Engineered and manufactured using the finest materials and the most advanced equipment, Argus proudly displays their quality craftsmanship though this range of superb pipeline pigging valves. By facilitating asset integrity, users can optimize gas and oil production. Advantages include:
Valves are superiorly constructed with a forged 3-piece body design.
Easy to use, the seat life promotes easy operation, with the extension of the trunnion-mounted ball.
Double block and a bleed construction facilitates the receipt and launch of spherical, bullet and scraper pigs.
Environmentally superior to pigging traps and tees.
With a standard temperature range of -50ºF to +250ºF (-46ºC to +121ºC), it is designed to suit NACE, low temperature gas and liquid applications.
The construction uses A350-LF2 low-temperature forged steel to ensure the integrity of the pig valve, while API 6D and ISO 9001:2008 certifications secure uncompromised quality.
Improved Benefits of the Automatic Pig Launcher
Argus pigging valves are easy to use, while at the same time having a reduced environmental impact. With increased convenience, safety and effectiveness, it offers a variety of benefits compared to conventional barrel-style pig launchers and receivers.
The integrity of Argus piping valves guarantees optimal pipeline performance and an optimal flow line.
