Metal Detectable Pipeline Pigs

Metal Detectable Pipeline Pigs

Food Approved Product


Metal detectable pipeline pigs are manufactured from a blue food approved silicone rubber and can be supplied in both vane (as picture above) and spherical designs. Silicone rubber has excellent heat resistant properties and our metal detectable rubber compound contains additives which are detectable by the majority of metal detection scanning equipment. This reduces the risk of product contamination sometimes caused by worn pigs. For optimal performance our metal detectable pipeline pigs are manufactured to suit the pipework inside diameter. Standard food approved pipeline pigs can also be supplied.

Application: Pipeline cleaning in food and hygienic applications where a detectable pig is required.
