IK is a leading foam pig manufacturer in Europe, from our UK facility we are able to manufacture over 30 different styles of foam pig with sizes ranging from ½” to 64” :
• Low density: 24 - 32 kg/m³
• Medium density: 80 – 112 kg/m³
• High density: 128 - 160 kg/m³
Foam are versatile, flexible and often suited to pipeline systems where pigging has not taken place before. Foam pigs can perform excellent on bore restrictions and significant changes in pipe ID.Foam Pigs - Click for more detailed information
Intrusive Pig Signaller
Scraper Passage Indicators, or pig signallers as they are often called, are installed onto launcher and receiver units to confirm the launch or arrival of a pig. They can also be installed at any point on the pipeline to indicate that the pig has passed a specific point or pipeline feature.Intrusive Pig Signaller - Click for more detailed information
Achieving positive isolation before carrying out hot work on pipelines carrying hydrocarbon resources has proved difficult in the past, the use of air bags and compression plugs being common practice. At best they are unreliable and cannot guarantee a safe working environment for this application; subsequently IK is pleased to announce the launch of its Twin Tyre Multi Plug.
Once installed the Multi Plug offers double isolation via its 2 independent inflatable tyres, a pressure test cavity between the tyres which allows the operator to prove positive isolation is achieved and a centre bypass facility which allows any activity downstream to be monitored. The Multi Plug also has a second function available; when the welding area has cooled the plug can be repositioned with the pressure test cavity covering the new weld, reactivated the plug can then be used to hydrostatically test the new weld to a maximum pressure of 30 bar.
Operational benefits are considerable:
Straight forward and simple to install and operational in minutes.
Positive isolation is always achievable.
No requirement for specialised tools to operate.
Available sizes ½” to 36” – larger sizes available on request.
Installed correctly the Multi Plug will withstand a minimum of 3 bar back pressure.
Tools are available for sale or hire.
Specially designed polyurethane tyres allow greater radial clearance and will seal in most badly pitted and oval pipes.
Centre bypass port allows operator to monitor downstream conditions.
All tools are certified prior to dispatch.

Polyurethane is an extremely versatile material, offering the elasticity of conventional rubbers combined with the toughness and durability of metal.
Here at PEI we are able to offer finished products in a wide range of colours and Shore hardness (55°A through to 95°A). Initial tooling costs are kept low because of our ability to machine or fabricate the moulds within our Newton Aycliffe facility.
Products available include:
Pig Launcher Trolley’s main function is to insert 28” dual module articulated pigs into an oil export system pipeline between an offshore installation and Onshore shipping facility. Main focus of design is reduced operations cost and increase HSE.Pig launcher trolley - Click for more detailed information
