What is Pig Tracking Equipment?

Pipeline pig tracking equipment allows pipeline operators and maintenance crews to identify the location of pigs as they traverse through the line.   Pig tracking is considered best practice during commissioning of newly constructed lines, or maintenance on a line that is rarely pigged, or never previously pigged.

What Are The Benefits of Using Pig Tracking Equipment?

A pig that has been stuck in a pipeline can cause operational risk to the pipeline.  Tracking equipment allows operators and service personnel to respond quickly to pigs stuck in the line, minimizing the risk of damage.  Using tracking equipment also eliminates wasted time spent trying to locate the pig manually, which results in a dramatic reduction in cost.
