Pig Launcher and Receiver

 Pig Launcher & Receivers (Scraper Traps) for cleaning, geometry and intelligent pipeline inspections are the devices used to launch and receive the tools (Pig) which travels inside the pipeline for the before mentioned purposes by means of the same fluid in pressure operating in the conduct. Being the petrochemical industry one of the most popular applications, safety is the biggest concern therefore Non Destructive Examinations as well as anti-spark and many other characteristic are well developed since the design stage.
