Overview

A leader in scraper trap technology and fabrication for many years, Taylor Forge Engineered Systems has been one of the foremost suppliers of scraper traps (also known as launcher and receiver traps or pig traps) throughout the world.

Scraper traps are typically located at compressor stations and terminal points of the pipeline. During construction, temporary scraper traps can be located at convenient intervals in order to clean construction debris from the new pipeline. Scraper traps can be designed to accommodate scraper pigs, sphere pigs, “smart” pigs or any combination of the three.

Traps can be supplied to any degree of packaging and fabrication required. The basic component is the barrel, or body, which is manufactured from either rolled & welded plate or from seamless pipe with an attached reducer section. Branch outlets are typically supplied using integrally die-formed extrusions. All barrel openings are either beveled or flanged and are shipped ready for final installation.
