CCI is now a distributor for Pigs Unlimited, who currently manufactures all styles of pigs (foam, steel, and solid-cast) as well as spare components (cups, discs, and brushes). Their main goal is to provide our customers with the most complete line of pigs and pigging products.
Since their conception, pigs have been cleaning pipelines in the oil and gas industry for well over one hundred years. Now, pigs have branched into other industries, such as municipalities, power plants, mining, refineries, chemical plants, pulp and paper mills, food and beverage, and cosmetic and pharmaceutical. Also, over the years pigs have evolved from basic “plugs” to being fairly sophisticated pipeline cleaning devices. Standard sizes range from 2″ to 48” (but larger sizes can easily be designed and manufactured), and they can be manufactured in varying lengths, diameters, styles and configurations to best suit the customer’s application.
Of the many pigs they offer, their line of foam pigs, with sizes ranging from 2″ to 48″, are available in standard designs of bare swabs, criss-cross, wirebrush, silicon carbide, plastic bristle, and total-wire designs. Their foam mixing and pouring machines allow us to offer light, medium, and heavy densities, as well as, special densities for unique applications. Their abrasive series of foam pigs for cleaning applications, include standard carbon steel wire, stainless steel wire, silicon carbide (in loose grit or bonded strap), and plastic bristle for internally coated lines and various plastic pipe types (PVC, fiberglass, HDPE).
Their line of solid-cast pigs include cup-type, disc-type, combination cup-and-disc type, as well as, modular pigs with all individual components of the pig being manufactured from polyurethane. All styles of their utility solid-cast pigs are able to accommodate brushes for cleaning applications and transmitters for tracking applications.
As for steel-mandrel pigs, they manufacture sizes ranging from 2″ to 48″ nominal pipe diameters with configurations including, but not limited to, two-cup, four-cup, two-disc, four-disc, conical-cup, multi-disc, articulated pigs, and pigs with wire brushes or paraffin-removal blades. These pigs can also be equipped with gauging plates, magnets for ferrous debris pickup, and transmitter cavities. They also offer special designs for unique applications.
Complementing our line of steel pigs, Pigs Unlimited International, Inc. is the only full-line pig manufacturer that builds replacement pig brushes in-house. These include carbon steel, stainless steel, and prostran for internally coated lines and plastic pipes. Various design types are wire-wheel, circular-hub, wrap-around, and spring-loaded. Replacement brushes can be manufactured for use with their steel pigs or
for other manufacturer’s pigs.
As a standard, their field-proven cups, discs and other polyurethane spare components are manufactured to an 80 Shore A durometer. However, varying durometers can be supplied for other specific customer applications. In addition to their standard polyurethane, other compounds for spare-component construction include neoprene, epdm, buna-n, hypalon, and viton for extreme high-temperature and low-temperature applications, or for special chemical-resistant requirements.
Besides their standard line of pipeline pigs, they also have the capacity and willingness to manufacture specialized products under contract where required by client companies. Some of these include special pig designs where either private labeling is desired or special designs for applications requiring a new design style of pig.
Additionally, they offer pigging-related products, such as launchers, receivers, pig trackers, pig detectors, closures and pigging valves, as well as, other products directly related to pigging operations.
