"a glycol based, solid gel pipeline pig."
Alchemy GGPP (Glycol Gel Pipeline Pig) is a solid gel pig which can be used in temperatures of less than 30 deg C to pig out lines and create temporary barriers for pipelines. The gel pig is manufactured in a former which is sized for the internal diameter of the pipeline. The pig and former are delivered to the pipeline site where the gel pig is inserted into the pipeline. The pig can be propelled with water, methanol, monoethylene glycol or gas. At the end of the pipeline the pig can be removed or sent to the production stream where it will dissolve with heat and low pH. This type of pig is also used to create sections of liquids within pipelines. Alchemy GGPP is resistant to biodegradation and so is ideally suited to projects where the time scale of deployment is not assured. The product is normally stable for up to 6 months in its original packaging. Alchemy GGPP is made in various diameters to suit pipeline requirements.
