Pig Launchers/Receivers, also known as Scraper Traps, are generally located at terminal points and at compressor stations along the pipeline and provide a safe and efficient means of inserting and removing various types of pipeline pigs. They are available as skidded packages with manual or automated launching systems.
R&H works with Taylor Forge Engineered Systems to supply Launcher / Receiver systems for a wide range of applications. Taylor Forge has many years of experience building scraper traps from the most basic designs to skid mounted systems for offshore platforms operating at pressures up to 15,000psi. For these higher-pressure units, Taylor Forge can utilize their own proprietary high strength, low alloy material to provide the most cost effective design. Valves and instrumentation can be incorporated in the skid mounted system to reduce field labor and minimize cost. In many cases, Taylor Forge can utilize their extruded outlet capability resulting in a safer, more cost-effective product. Years of experience in the engineering and design of launchers and receivers, along with proprietary materials and specialized manufacturing processes make Taylor Forge the obvious choice for this critical equipment.
