Pipeline Test Loop

PigLaunch

RCI has a test loop for pipeline pigs. The loop comprises three separate launchers (8”, 10”, and 12” diameters) that feed into a 12” receiver, providing 300 feet of testing distance.

Within the line itself, there are a variety of turns, bends and diameter changes that simulate the conditions a pig might have to navigate in an actual pipeline. A combination of pressure transducers and flow meters connected to a computer system allows for data acquisition and analysis.

Space is available for additions and modifications to the existing lines.
