PE Launches AMPL - Automatic Multiple Pig Launching System

(January 23rd 2008)

PE Launches Automatic Multiple Pig Launching System

PE will be launching AMPL, our newly developed Automatic Multiple Pig Launching system at the Pipeline Pigging & Integrity Management Conference / Exhibition being held at The Marriott Westchase Hotel, Houston on the 12-14th February 2008.

AMPL has been designed to minimise the number of times a pig launcher door has to be opened to access pipelines for pigging.

AMPL is particularly beneficial for unmanned platforms, isolated launch sites, subsea pigging or high frequency pigging. It also greatly reduces the potential for accidents to personnel operating the trap. Launchers using AMPL do not normally require modifications and no external power supply is required to launch the full series of pigs.

AMPL substantially reduces the cost of launching pigs, provides Health, Safety and Environmental benefits, and allows resources to be utilised for other operational requirements, making pipeline pigging more efficient and effective.

Visit us on stand 303 to see a fully animated process demonstrating the AMPL system.
