TYPICAL PRE-COMMISSIONING PROCEDURE FOR NEW PIPELINES

1. PRE-SWEEP

 Pre-sweep pipeline to remove debris from the line. Use a 5lb poly pig such as a Bullet-Nose Poly Pig, or a Wire Brush Poly Pig.  

2. GAUGE PIG

 Run a Gauge Pig with sizing plate to check for dents and ocalities. We recommend a Multi-Disc Bi Directional Steel Mandrel Pig. 

3. FILL THE PIPELINE

 Fill the pipeline using a bidirectional pig, such as a Double-Dished  Poly Pig or a Foam Disc Poly Pig. This will allow one to utilize the  same pig for Dewater Operations. 

4. CLEAN AND DRY

 When clean and dry operations require a 1/4" Dust Penetration and Dew  Point, a series of Total-Wire Brush Pigs and Bare Foam Swabs are  required. For best results use a descant dryer in your air spread.
