Cup Pigs

Standard Cup Pigs
Designed for cleaning, batching and gauging, IK’s cup pig is still a universally popular style of pig. The cup design is derived from the hydraulic piston seal and aggressively scrapes the pipeline bore while maintaining a good seal.
The range is comprehensive 2” through to 56” with 2, 3 or 4 cup models and a variety of body constructions available.

In sizes 2” up to 14” a spindle (bolt) body can be offered or alternatively, the complete range up to 56” can be supplied as a multi bolt design.

Conical Cup Pigs
These pigs are especially suitable when encountering pipe ovality and varying pipe wall thickness. Designed for cleaning, batching and gauging, IK’s conical cup pigs allow
maximum flexibility while maintaining a positive seal.

The range is comprehensive 2” through to 48” with 2, 3 or 4 cup models and a variety of body constructions available.
In sizes 2” up to 14” a spindle (bolt) body can be offered or alternatively the complete range up to 48” can be supplied as a multi bolt design.

Other design options include the attachment of gauging plates, cleaning brushes, transmitter housings and magnets (for debris collection).

All IK’s pigs are supplied with polyurethane bumper noses as standard.
All IK’s pigs are designed to pass minimum 1.5D radius bends and negotiate full bore branches.
All multi bolt pig body assemblies are welded to code standard BS EN ISO 15614-1:2004+A1:2008. NDT testing (MPI) of the welds can be performed if requested.
