Many configurations are available to accommodate the demanding pipeline requirements found in today’s pipelines.
The optimum speed for pigs is approximately 3 to 5 feet per second. Over the years this has proven to yield the best results for pigging operations. Pigs can be used at lower speeds (even as low as 1 foot per second) but it must be understood that the pig will experience a "stop & go" effect, which could allow the pig to become stuck.
