Van der Ven is engaged in in-line inspection of pressure pipes. Through an intelligent PIG (*), thousands of measurements are carried out in the pressure pipes from the inside, giving a good picture of the residual life of the pipe and the possible expansion possibilities for the future. For the pumping station in Geleen we supplied, among other things, DN 900-1000 and DN 1000 - 1200 mm grades, as well as a valve DN 900, and some standard piping.
Within the framework contracts 'Piping and Pumping stations', after a period of preparation and getting to know each other, several projects were started, this is one of them. The next project we are working on together is the renovation of the transport pipeline Daalakker - RWZI Roermond. Read more at 'External website'.
(*) PIG (Pipeline Inspection Gauge).
Pigging is the general term used in the industry when referring to objects that are sent through a pipe. In the early years of pipeline cleaning, a pig, also called 'mole', meant a large sponge. This sponge was then sent through the pipeline with the normal liquid or gas pushed through the pipe. These 'sponges' are usually made of foam rubber. However, more and more other types of cleaning PIG's come on the market (source).
