Foam Pigs & Spheres
Similar to many other applications, the advantages of using plastic materials for pigs were apparent even before the materials were themselves completely developed.
- Low cost
- Reduced sticking risk
- Low maintenance
- High tear and wear resistance
Spheres are one of the oldest, most well known and widely used pigs. They are almost exclusively used as sealing pigs. Inflatable spheres are available.
A spherical shape is ideal for an automated system because of the ease to roll. Numerous spheres can be loaded and then launched at predetermined intervals. Specially designed flow tees for the spheres are also available on request.
