Smart Pigging & Engineered Solutions

The industry focus on unpiggable pipelines is rising. Even with enhanced technologies, many pipelines remain ‘unpiggable’ due to various reasons. Such pipelines not cleaned for long time or never cleaned makes it a challenge to do intelligent pigging.
LIN SCAN Advanced Pipelines and Tanks Services

LIN SCAN has a designer approach to un-piggable lines and working closely with the operational and maintenance groups; we have pigged many “unpiggable” pipelines. The key to success in pigging the unpiggable lines is due to the additional pre-planning, such as working out an inspection strategy, considering special tool development, and investigating the need for pipeline preparation. Pre-planning considers not only the access, but the interval needed for each inspection, as well as consideration of special tool configuration. LIN SCAN with its vast and diversified experience is ready to take up more challenges.

Multi diameter pipelines are no more considered as unpiggable lines. LIN SCAN provides tailor made solutions for its clients having multi diameter pipelines.
