What is a Poly Pig? Industrial piping like used to deliver potable water, carry away waste water, and transport oil from a well to a refinery all develop varying degrees of build-up that can restrict flow and contaminate product.
A Poly Pig, which can be as small as a couple of inches or as big as 108" (9 feet) in diameter, is introduced to an isolated section of pipe through a launcher. Then either the normal flow of the pipe, or a tow cable carries the Poly Pig through the pipe, cleaning the inside walls as it goes.
Several passes with a series of Poly Pigs across a range of densities and abrasive coatings or specialty shapes, cups and brushes can be used to maximize the cleaning effect.
Piping System Cleaning by Professional Piping Services, Inc. can help maximize flow, minimize energy cost and ensure, when applicable, that the end product is free of contaminants.
