Sweco Fab., Inc. designed and fabricated pig launchers and receivers with closure for a crude export pipeline in Mexico. These units were custom designed per ASME CODE B31.3 and weigh 2,400 lb. They are 120″ in length and have 12″ dia. minor barrels and 18″ dia. major barrels. The barrels are fabricated from API 5L Gr. B pipe, the flanges from SA105 and the closures from carbon steel. The launchers are designed for operating temperatures that vary from -20°F to 212°F at 943 psig. They were radiography tested and hydro-tested at 1,415 psig for two hours.

Piping Engineering Training – The PT&P Process Webinar
Join us for introductory training on various types of pipe supports, expansion joints, vibration solutions, dynamic restraints, and more. We will discuss manufacturing systems for mass customization, volume production, rapid delivery, flexibility, and corrosion management. We will also go over pipe stress, material properties/selection, and contact corrosion. Learn about our workflows, turnaround strategy, and see real issues covered in some of our case studies. Lastly, view a new technology hitting the industry with data and examples.
This presentation has been given by PT&P to over 30 operating plants this year and refined with the input of Fixed Equipment Engineering, Maintenance, and Inspection teams. The PT&P expert will draw on this experience to provide practical insights into the challenges facing operating plants in their piping systems.
