The aim of this section of the website is to provide examples of pig simulation and the implementation of pig design techniques. The examples presented are based on real-life scenarios which Pipeline Research Limited have provided solutions to aid the decision making process.
The first example is taken from an analysis of the motion of a pipeline dewatering train. In the course of the analysis work it was shown that the last dual diameter pig (run in gas) in the train could possibly reverse into a wye piece downstream from the reducer:
