KMAX Introduces Multi-Body Cleaning and Gauge Combo Pigs

Our 3 inch and 4 inch cleaning and gauge combo pigs

Our 3 inch and 4 inch cleaning and gauge combo pigs

Introducing our new multi-body cleaning-gauge combo pig. KMAX has once again made small diameter inspection easier by streamlining preliminary ILI procedures. This unique approach to cleaning will save operators both time and money in preparation for smart pigging.

Why multi-body? The answer is simple, using a multi-body tool opens a plethora of possibilities that cater to each pipeline’s unique cleaning requirements. If the pipeline is relatively new and with clean product a simple two body pig will be perfect. For those sticky crude lines, we can easily add multiple cup bodies and multiple brushes to maximize cleaning power in one simple pass. Add on our gauge plate body and you have an all in one pre-inspection solution!

If you have a project coming up send us an email at for a customized solution!

Come See us at PPIM!

Come see us in Houston at the PPIM exhibition in booth 713 ! We will be showing off our 3 inch MFL/DEF combo tool as well as our brand new small diameter multi body cleaning gauge pigs!


Our small diameter inline inspection tools can’t be beat on collapsibility and flexibility you’ll be amazed at what our tools are capable of.  We have also gone one step further to minimize the challenges of small diameter pipeline inspection with our new multi body cleaning gauge pigs. This unique combination simplifies pre-inspection procedures and ensures the highest quality data during the inspection.  For more information please reach out here :   Or via email:

We hope to see you soon!

Our Maiden Voyage

After 3 years of design work, many design revisions, countless hours of testing, and a few all-nighters, KMAX Inspection’s maiden voyage proved successful in our first small diameter inline inspection. Our 3 inch tool proved to be ahead of the game as it found over 25 metal loss features in the .125 wall pipe with defects up to 60% metal loss, compared to only 1 defect of 30% metal loss found by the ultrasonic tool that inspected the same line in 2011.
