Standard Caliper Pig


PIL Caliper Data Sheet 010612

The PIL Caliper tool was conceived and engineered to provide the industry with a simple and robust, single-body caliper tool solution across the full range of sizes, from 6” to 48”. The tool’s rugged technology is equally valuable onshore and offshore, for the identification of geometrical anomalies which could affect the integrity of the pipeline.

PIL’s standard caliper pig was developed specifically for use in the commissioning of new pipelines. It was the first multi-channel caliper tool to be used in this role. The first tools were operational in 2003 and, since then, the design has been refined and improved to match the changing demands of the industry, particularly towards use in deep water applications. The design exhibits a high degree of reliability under arduous operating conditions and has an extensive track record.
