Pig Valves

pig valves

Pig Valves are designed first and foremost as a state of the art Shutoff Valve. Each aspect of the valve is engineered to perform under the harshest conditions. The valve is designed as a trunnion mounted ball valve. As indicated from the name, the valve completely shuts off the flow of the piping and can be used as a single block and bleed or double block and bleed valve. For certain applications a by-pass can be installed.

The Pig Valve is bi-directional and can be used as both a launcher and a receiver. The valve can use most types of pigs including Bullet, Scraper and Spherical pigs, all in one configuration. Hills Flow Control, Inc. Valve performs 100% pressure testing on all of our Pig Valves. Designed in accordance with ASME B16.34, API, and NACE requirements.
