Choose from Air, Nitrogen, or Liquid for Pig Propulsion
The Isolated Pig Launcher is positioned just off the launching end of the transfer line and is isolated from the line by a piggable valve. It provides a “home base” for the pig and prevents pig exposure to the product during the transfer process. Since the launcher and pig are isolated from the product flow during transfer, it works well for clients who desire the flexibility to insert the pig in the launcher at any time during the transfer process. It is particularly well suited for use with agressive products that may damage pig materials.
The pig launcher is uniquely equipped with the patented LQC® (Locking Quick Connect) quick access safety closure, pig relax chamber, and side entry pig propulsion fittings.
The LQC safety closure allows operators to gain access to pigs for routine maintenance in less than 15 seconds and will mechanically lock and remain sealed if an attempt is made to remove the closure when under pressure. This unique feature is only available from Pigging Solutions and allows operators quick and easy access to pigs while providing the utmost in operator safety and spill protection.
For effective product displacement and line cleaning, pigging systems require pigs to be compressed tightly in the transfer line. The Pigging Solutions launcher body design with the relax chamber allows the operator to easily remove and insert pigs without the tugging or stuffing needed by other types of pigging systems.
Side entry pig propulsion and vent fittings on the launcher body allow the LQC safety closure to be quickly removed by operators without the need for piping disconnections and waiting for busy maintenance personnel to perform this time consuming task.
