Pig Launchers and Receivers

Pig Launchers and Receivers are pressure-containing vessels or piping sections within a pipeline system used for pipeline maintenance, cleaning, and inline inspection. The primary function of a pig launcher and receiver is to allow operators to launch and receive pipeline pigs without disrupting line contents or interrupting and shutting down pipeline operations. Often called pig traps, pig launchers and receivers are available in various styles and customizable configurations depending upon application and customer requirements.
