Miaskit End Closure

At each 30-300 km gas and oil pipelines are equipped with pipeline pigging stations for launching and receiving of pigs and diagnostics of pipelines. The stations are closed with closures called end closures in oil and gas industry. A score of serious and minor accidents, even with victims, happen annually due to unreliable and insufficiently safe design of the used closures.

Efforts made by Makeyev SRC resulted in the development of exceptionally safe and easy in design Miaskit end closure for launching and receiving traps of intratubular devices.

As against clamped, sectorial, and bayoneted closures the Miaskit closure has a self-sealing design, t.i., a closure/ body joint is getting more sealed under pressure as the working gas presses against the joint. The design eliminates any depressurization, injuries or accidents, if service personnel act in any wrong way.

The Miaskit closure is notably safer, more reliable in sealing, simpler in design and cheaper.
