An all too common occurrence in the pigging industry is when a mechanical pig gets stuck in a pipeline. This can be due to a build of wax or debris in front of the pig, though disc wear on long pipelines or they can get stuck at tight bends.
Sometimes it can be back flowed but often a rescue pig is sent in to recover this stuck pig only to end up getting stuck itself. The resultant cost of mechanical intervention can be eye wateringly expensive.
By selecting SANCCUS gel pig or pipeline gel technology as the first option the client massively reduces the risk of a rescue effort.
