Pipeline Pigging System
Crucial Part of Your Pipeline Operation Integrity; Safe, Reliable and Sustainable
Pipeline pigging systems are the heart and soul of any pipeline. They are the crucial part for the operation. Pipeline pig stations are used for pipeline inspection, cleaning, maintenance and help flow of multiple products at the same time.
Due to the increasing safety, environmental and operational cost, pipeline operation is more expensive than before. Todays’ pipeline operators are looking for more reliable, safe and sustainable solutions.
Thanks to 40 years of experience, ERGIL provides unique solutions for pipeline pigging stations.
Modular Skid Pig Launcher & Receiver Systems
ERGIL’s modular pigging stations provide all you need on a single skid. ERGIL designs mobile or permanent frames with adjustable height mechanisms, so moving from one place to another and using it for multiple pipelines is possible. They are easy to transport from one location to another. Modules can be designed as per the shipping method (sea, road and even air) and the system can be customizable as per working environment to protect against rush weather effects or robbery. Traditional pigging system contraction is costly, takes time, and safety concerns are high, however ERGIL’s mobile modular skid pig launcher & receiver plug and play systems can reduce your project cost and time drastically in addition to eliminating site accidents. Contractors do not need to deal with site installation of such complicated systems.
ERGIL provides custom-made modular skid systems that are consist of;
- Pig Launcher & Pig Receiver
- Pig Trolley & Jib Crane
- Quick Opening Closure
- Pig Signallers
- Valves, Gauges, Indicators
- Control Panel
- Interlocking Mechanism
- Skid Mobile or Fixed Frame & Components
- Adjustable Legs
- Lightning & Earthing
Certified High Pressure Pig Launcher & Receiver
ERGIL has been designing and fabricating engineered to order high pressure vessels since 1982. Pig launcher & receiver is the most important part of the pigging system. Designing and manufacturing high pressure pig launchers & pig receivers requires certain specialization that has to be accredited by industrial authorities. ERGIL designs and manufactures pressure vessels up to 690 bar with maximum thickness 150 mm. Our fabrication facility and personnel are certified with ASME U, S, R, NBR, GOST, AD 2000/ISO 3834, EN 1090-1, EN ISO 3834-2, & DNV GL + ABS Marine Welding Class Program and capable of designing and manufacturing as per ASME, EN, GOST & as per end user requirements; such Shell DEP.
Quick Opening Closures & Interlocking System; Safety is Our Top Priority
ERGIL’s RX Closure is highly used with not only pig launcher & receivers, but also with various kind of pressure vessels; such as filters, separators, coalescers, autoclaves … etc RX Closures are highly respected in oil, gas, chemical and marine industries thanks to its safety mechanism. Bayonet type closures come with triple safety mechanisms and additional interlocking if required. It can be manual or automatic to minimize operational accidents.
It plays a crucial safety role for pig launchers & receivers’ operations. High pressure is very risky to handle. Closure itself should not be opened under pressure and avoid any incident. RX Closures are designed to withstand high pressure - as per customer requirement - and does not leak, because of unique seal lip design.
For better safety operations, ERGIL offers a complete closure and valve interlocking system that works as per required sequence. System helps anyone to open a pig trap closure or valve when the system is pressurized; therefore, forces the operator to follow a certain order. We work closely with your valve suppliers and make sure they consider interlocking system requirements. Our dedicated supervisors install and test interlocking systems in-house or at your site.
Fully Automated Systems
Are you interested to control your pigging operations automatically and monitor operations from your control room? System can also be monitored and controlled from our smart App and send SMS or e-mail notifications.
ERGIL provides full automated pig launcher and receiver systems that can be integrated into your existing control system. Having an automated system helps you to reduce man power manual help, accident risks and equipment hazards.
ATEX certified SCADA control panel
Skid system comes with an ATEX certified SCADA control panel, hydraulic controlled automatic quick opening closure and pig trolley. System works with Modbus communication or similar protocols allowing remote reporting of all events. Quick opening closure opens automatically when there is no pressure in the pig trap, then the pig trolley places the pig inside the quick opening closure and QOC closes automatically. Once, the system analyzes safety requirement and pressure ratings through sensors and actuator pressure relief valves, launches the pig and finally the pig indicator sends a signal to the control room, when it passes through the scrubber. Control unit captures the real time data. Besides traditional models, wireless controlled data transfer is also available upon customer request.
ERGIL skid pig launchers & receivers are designed to protect the environment. Skid acts like a contamination basket and collects unwanted pipeline dirt and oil, so they do not spill and harm the soil or sea water for off-shore applications. Baskets can be easily transferred to the recycle area.
