OEL advanced and versatile Electromagnetic (EM) Pipeline Pig Monitoring System will operate as a pig locator or as a pig signaller in pipelines onshore and offshore. The system can be used to find lost and stuck pigs, to confirm a pig has left or arrived at a required location, to count the passage of pigs and can also be used to monitor the movement of a pig.
The system will operate effectively to monitor pigs in buried pipelines, pipelines carrying gas and in pipeline bundles where acoustic pingers are either less effective or ineffective.
The system consists of three main components: the transmitter which is fitted within the body of the pig, the receiver and the antenna. The OEL EM Pipeline Pig Monitoring System can be adapted as necessary to operate in hazardous areas.
