New Equipment

October 2016

B&B Pipetools

The new B&B 6K Mega Roller is an increased capacity pipe roller designed for heavy duty jobsite use. The oversized 6X3 inch wheels are a urethane over steel design offering numerous advantages over our competitors in this product price point category. They allow ultra smooth pipe rotation via heavy duty sealed bearings, and urethane coating allows carbon pipe rotation, as well as contamination free exotic pipe rotation. The unique head design also allows the removal of the wheels, transforming to a V head stand restricting pipe rotation. The robust construction and design is head and shoulders above other similar products on the market. sales@bbpipetools.com

Inline Services

Inline Services has new Tracking Equipment that can be used to monitor a pig’s location or movement throughout a pipeline. The pig tracking equipment consists of Receivers, Geophones and Transmitters. Receivers are used to reveal distinctive pulsing patterns of passing pigs. Geophones detect low sounds helping to indicate where the pig is in the pipeline. The transmitters are available in standard or custom types and operate by emitting electromagnetic fields at low frequencies (between 15 and 30Hz). Using these devices will help to greatly reduce the search area in the event a pig becomes stuck or lost in the line. www.inlineservices.com
