Pyrophoric Dust Removal

Presence of dust is a common problem of gas pipelines as it affects the gas purity, causes extensive erosion growth in pipelines and piping and may lead to blockage of filters and failure of other downstream facilities.

Presence of dust is a common problem of gas pipelines as it affects the gas purity, causes extensive erosion growth in pipelines and piping and may lead to blockage of filters and failure of other downstream facilities.

Removal of significant amount of dust is a serious challenge as abrasive nature of dust particles causes accelerated wear of polyurethane discs and cups thus reducing the cleaning pigs performance.

We developed a range of cleaning pigs with supporting wheels to shift the load from the cups and discs to ensure that cleaning effect is preserved for the whole run duration.

We also use a specifically casted extra-durable self-lubricating consumable parts made of heavy-duty polyurethane to withstand the wear. We adopt these cleaning pigs by installing strong magnets to carry the ferrous debris and front nozzles designed to remove any dust buildup that may clog the pig in the pipeline.

However in certain cases the dust cannot be cleaned by pigging methods. Then we suggest our cyclone solution.

We are happy to announce that LIN SCAN has been acquired by PIPECARE Group AG.
