A viscous gel can be used for;
Each project is assessed for 8 factors that influence the total gel volume to be used. We can supply viscous gels in;
Typical properties of a viscous gel are;
Depending on the pipeline and the application one or more viscous gels can be utilised, each performing different duties. Each pipeline is assessed on a wide number of criteria to determine the optimal gel viscosities.
Gel technologies provide an efficient solution to increasing production (increased bore) and extending pipeline life (limit corrosion) by debris pick up.
Specifically targeting pipelines that require a low volume of cleaning material, low stress, fast solution for debris removal. Gel pipeline cleaning opens up a significant number of systems that are old or have never been cleaned or operate with a low pressure requirement.
Typical benefits of a gel pig include;
Gel Pig can be be extracted through a smaller outlet than the pipeline by increasing the line pressure causing the pig to shear. Gel Pigs can be made to soften specifically for small diameter removal.
We can advise on the best disposal route for your gel pig after your project.
Easy to load & launch as all gel pigs come in a preformed canister that can be matched to your pipeline specification.
