Sorry.... this question seems to be puerile...... since 10" - 16" - 24" - 40" - 24" - 12" pipe that too with few hundred meters of pipe in between installed without any flanges and with no consideration at all for maintenance & cleaning..... huh
expecting something more from others...

[PipingDesign] Cleaning of the Fuel gas pipe

Hello all,

A problem looks like this :

There is a 10" pipe expanded to 16", then 24", then 40" and reduced back to 24" and then 12". (Please don't ask me, why?) There are a few hundred metres of pipe in between each expansion/reduction of this Gas pipe. The pipe is already installed with no pig launching/receiving stations (not of any use anyway, since you cannot use a single pig for this purpose). There are no flanges in between.

Can anybody propose a solution to clean the pipe - other than cutting ! We cannot pig it, or air blow it at such varying pressures/velocities.

With best regards,
Jaydeep Naha
