An important part of Pig Launcher & Receiver design is the access hatch, or more commonly referred to as the Quick Opening Closure. This component enables operators to access to the vessel for the purpose of inserting or removing Pipeline Pigs and is critical in terms of safety, operability and reliability. HORIZON is the Authorised Distributor in Australia and New Zealand for Stark Solutions range of Quick Opening Closures. For more information please go to our Quick Opening Closures webpage.
Pig Signallers are also an integral component in Pigging Systems as they provide an effective method of determining a Pig’s location.
