Aluminium Pigging Tools

Our customer had an urgent requirement for the fabrication of sets of pigging tools , pigging is an expression used in the oil industry for putting various types of tooling through pipework which in this case was 36″ diameter.

We duplicated pigging trolleys that are used to internally high pressure water blast lenghts of pipe, the “pigs”  are aluminium frames that run on several nylon wheels, the frames are manhandled into position on a dummy section of pipe that locates on the end of the pipe being worked on. 

We also made up some access platforms for the pigging to take place on the back of transport trailers.
