RusselSmith’s subsea pig tracking system delivers 100% accurate, safe and reliable location of lost or stuck pigs in pipelines.
The aim of every pig run is to complete the required task and restore the pipeline to its original operating condition in the shortest time possible. A stuck pig can always cause delays which will result in downtime and higher projects costs. So it is important to be able to track pigs through pipeline systems using a reliable and accurate system.
RusselSmith’s pig tracking device is a quick, reliable and highly effective way to track and accurately locate pigs in subsea pipelines. Our pig tracking systems enables the operator to identify the exact location of a pig during an inspection or cleaning activity as well as the speed of the pig. This information can then be used to minimize the risk of damage and maximize throughput.
Our pig tracking system is deployed to the monitoring location underwater by our remotely-operated vehicles (ROVs). The system has the ability to keep track of the number of pigs which have passed the monitoring location of a pig.
Stuck pigs with no tracking devices attached to them can also be located easily.
