Launchers & Receivers
Vertical • Horizontal • Sloped • Automated
Pipeline Equipment, Inc. has extensive experience designing and fabricating Pig Launcher and Receiver systems. We offer many configurations including horizontal, vertical, or sloped ranging from a simple launcher and receiver to complete skid mounted units with all valves and associated piping. Each configuration is designed to meet the customer’s specific application in compliance with applicable codes and material specifications.
Most pipelines must be pigged to either clean the pipeline for flow improvement and corrosion control, batch different products, displace certain products, or inspect the line for integrity assurance. The primary purpose of a pig launcher and receiver is to allow the launching or receiving of a pipeline pig without interrupting the flow.
