PIPELINE PIGGING

Montauk Services is one of North America's most experienced pigging and testing companies. Pigging effectively cleans and removes debris from the interior of pipelines using a foam device propelled by normal flow. This technique is especially effective for long runs and larger diameter pipelines. Pigs have the ability to navigate short radius elbows, tees, and most types of valves.


OUR SERVICES

For over 37 years Montauk Services has been trusted by municipalities to assess issues and safely solve them quickly and economically. In most cases, pigging restores pipelines to the original condition.

Integrity Tool

integrity analysis

Due to aging infrastructure, municipalities will benefit from evaluating the integrity of their pressure lines before a failure happens. Montauk technicians are experienced at running new age tools to diagnose problems in pipelines. Smart pigs with sensors gather data about pipeline wall conditions and anomalies in steel, cast iron, and ductile iron piping.

pig tracking

Pig tracking is essential to any pigging operation. It allows Montauk's technicians to verify speed, location and retrieval time which is important in all systems. Transmitters and receivers are utilized from Pipeline Inspection, Comtel and Envirocal. On longer runs, specialized above ground markers will indicate pig passage time and GPS location. The information is processed through iridium satellites and relayed to technicians via smart devices.
