New White Paper Explores Evolution of Pig Signallers and Shift to Non-Intrusive Technology  

Posted on: October 12th, 2023 by tore_admin No Comments

We are delighted to announce the release of our latest white paper – “Non-Intrusive Pig Signallers – An Opportunity” – which is featured on the Pipeline and Gas Journal website.  

The paper explores the evolution of pig signallers and why non-intrusive signallers are safer, more environmentally friendly and provide enhanced operational efficiency when compared to intrusive models.  It also looks at the different technologies available and outlines why selecting the optimal solution for each pipeline is key – there should not be a one-size-fits all approach. 

You can download the white paper for free by visiting the Pipeline and Gas Journal website and gain a deeper understanding of why non-intrusive signallers are the way forward.
