Argus Pig Valve

The Pig Valve is considered one of the best pigging valves available utilized extensively on oil pipelines and gas flow pipelines around the world. This is an excellent alternative to the conventional pigging method and provides safe, operator friendly pig launching and receiving.

The Pig Valve is a full bore double block & bleed valve with a truncation mounted ball allowing for extended seat life and time saving quarter turn valve action. This design also allows for most Polly-pigs and Spheres to be launched from the pigging valve as well as custom Solid-Cast Turbo-Flow pigs.

The Pig Valve is currently available sizes 2″ through 12″ in ANSI 150 up to 1500 with multiple and automated launching options for most valves.

Argus has long been recognized as the industry leader in pigging valves, with products used in oil and gas pipelines in countries around the world.

Argus ball vales and pigs have bi-directional capabilities, and allow the use of pigs from other manufacturers. The pigs range in size from 2″ (DN50) to 6″ (DN400) with pressure ratings ranging from 150-1500 ANSI.

Advantages of Pipeline Pigging With Argus Pig Valve

Engineered and manufactured using the finest materials and the most advanced equipment, Argus proudly displays their quality craftsmanship though this range of superb pipeline pigging valves. By facilitating asset integrity, users can optimize gas and oil production. Advantages include:

  • Valves are superiorly constructed with a forged 3-piece body design.
  • Easy to use, the seat life promotes easy operation, with the extension of the trunnion-mounted ball.
  • Double block and a bleed construction facilitates the receipt and launch of spherical, bullet and scraper pigs.
  • Environmentally superior to pigging traps and tees.
  • With a standard temperature range of -50ºF to +250ºF (-46ºC to +121ºC), it is designed to suit NACE, low temperature gas and liquid applications.

The construction uses A350-LF2 low-temperature forged steel to ensure the integrity of the pig valve, while API 6D and ISO 9001:2008 certifications secure uncompromised quality.
