RC PIGOUT-404 is a unique blend of fast-acting solvents, dispersants, and emulsifiers designed for the removal of hydrocarbon deposits from pipelines. Used as directed, RC PIGOUT-404 will remove organic deposits, and assist in the removal of solids and particulate matter, including iron sulfide, which could severely affect pipeline production. RC PIGOUT-404 will also lubricate pipeline to prevent pigs from premature wear.
