Pig Launchers and Receivers

Pipeline Inspection Gauges (Pigs) are used to perform a functions within a pipeline, such as cleaning, inspection and separating different types of fluids within the pipeline. Pig Launchers and Receivers are the entry and exit points of the pigs into and out of the pipeline.

Design and Engineering

Lyall's Pig Launchers and Receivers are custom designed and fabricated to meet the needs of the specific application. Launchers can be traditional horizontal fully skid mounted with all of the valves required for launching or receiving a pig or can be a simple barrel-only design that can be mounted to existing valves already installed on the pipeline. Our patent pending vertical launchers and receivers are designed with a smaller footprint that enables use of multiple units per wellhead.  All components and materials used in the fabrication of the pig launcher and receiver are fully customizable including valves, closures, signals, etc. To prevent costly problems, Lyall will create manufacturing drawings and CAD models of all components to catch potential dimensional problems before fabrication.
