Pig locators are devices by which the pigs inside the pipes can be detected. Different circumstances like dented pipes bend inside the pipe, a two-sided pipe, a trap made by a metallic object inside the pipe, thick deposits inside the pipe, pipes under tension and many more conditions can cause a pig to be trapped inside the pipe. Therefore, there is a need for a device to detect a trapped pig inside the pipe for whatever reason. Pig locators are the devices which are specially designed for such application. This device can detect the pig inside the pipe through the electromagnetic waves which are being emitted from a transmitter that is being placed inside the pig.
