The Pig-Valve Pigs are specifically designed for use in pig launching and receiving valves. They are available in open cell polyurethane foam, solid cast urethane or even solid steel body with polyurethane wear parts. To handle the varying pipeline applications these pig are available in multiple configurations included cup & disc, bi-directional and wire brushes.
Pig-Valve Pigs are made of the highest quality polyurethane elastomer available and feature one-piece solid polyurethane construction so no assembly is necessary. Our Pig-Valve Pigs are engineered for longer wear and abrasion resistance. They are versatile and an be run in LPG, crude oil, natural gas, saltwater and product lines as well as liquid removal.
Pigging refers to the use of Pipepline Inspection Gauges (PIG’s) to execute a variety of operations within a pipeline, for example cleaning or inspecting piepelines or extracting any left over product. This is done by inserting the pig into a Pig Launcher Valve which then insert the PIG into the pipeline. The pig then travels through the pipeline until it reaches the pig receiver.

- Mainline Pipeline
- Oil & Gas Transmissions
Pigging has in the past mainly been used to clean large diamter lines in the oil industry. More recently the use of smaller pig’s has been increasing as processing plants are looking for increased efficiency. Control Seal manufacturs Pig Launcher/Receiver Valves from 2” up to 42” and from 150lbs up to 1500lbs.
