Pipeline Pigging Technology (2nd Edition)


File Size: 11.13 Mb

Description
THIS SECOND, completely-revised, edition of Pipeline Pigging Technology is essentially a compilation of selected papers presented at the conferences organized by Pipes & Pipelines International and Pipe Line Industry in the UK and the USA between 1988 and 1991. The book is thus a successor to the first edition, published in 1987, and brings readers up-to-date with the rapidly-developing technology of pipeline pigging.

Although the international pigging industry has unquestionably made major advances in its scope and expertise over the intervening years, it is nevertheless apparent that the comment made in the earlier book - that there is a general lack of knowledge about the use of pipeline pigs of all kinds - is still relevant today. Not only have the conferences at which these papers were presented produced questions such as 'How do I interpret the results of this intelligent pigging inspection?', but they also continue to produce the most basic of pigging questions such as 'Should I use discs or cups?' or 'Will foam pigs or rigid pigs work the best in this application?'.
