Introduction to Pipleline Pigging

Responding to the demand for general information about pigging, PPSA has produced "An Introduction to Pipeline Pigging" to give an idea of the different purposes pigs can be used for and how they can be used more effectively.

With four main chapters ("Why pig a pipeline?", "Designing a pipeline for pigging.", "Equipment description and uses", and "Pigging a pipeline.") and five appendices, the book is an introductory source answering many pigging questions which begin "How do we.....?".
