pig launcher vesselFB Group is presently constructing two pig launchers suitable for a pig length of 3,200mm.

Pig launchers are essentially vessels used for the launching of a pipe pig or a pig tool into the pipeline for cleaning or inspection purposes.

After being launched into the pipeline, the pig tool is pushed through the pipeline by a driving fluid. The pipeline is cleaned along the way by brushing action from the pig.

On the other end, the pig tool is received by a pig receiver. The pig receiver is also a vessel used for receiving the pipe pig tool. Pig launchers and receivers are designed to meet the specific requirements of a pipeline.
