Knock out debris with our turnkey deposit removal and maintenance program
Wax. Iron Sulfide. Rust. Massive crystalized hydrates. Your oil, gas, or water pipelines are under constant threat of build-up and blockage from a variety of debris that can restrict throughput and hinder ILI data surveys. Invacor’s Pipeline Cleaning service clears this debris to keep product flowing smoothly and reduce your operating and maintenance costs.
We offer two pipeline cleaning methods for both online and offline pipes:
Mechanical cleaning with pipeline pigs is a cost-effective solution capable of cleaning up to a mile of pipeline in a single run. Our process utilizes progressive pigging, or gradually increasing the diameter and style of pig to prevent it from being stuck or the pipeline becoming completely jammed. At the same time, our extensive experience working with the top pig manufacturers allows us to limit the amount of equipment required, which helps keep down costs and downtime.
In many cases, chemical cleaning is a necessary alternative or supplemental procedure to mechanical cleaning. To help you determine what type of cleaning product is best for your project, we factor in the deposit characteristics and how much there is, the design of your pipeline system, cleaner cost, environmental impact, and more. With more than 300 proven products from major brands, including custom blends, we can perform chemical cleaning on either pre-operational/pre-commissioned pipes or pipes already in use.
