Hello, what would happen if a pig was put in the pig launcher backwards e.g. instead of the cone or bullet shape end inserted first it was the flat shaft that was put in first? It's a 4" rubber pig with 3 cups (or cylindrical rings in series around the shaft and about 10" long. Would it stay stuck in the pipeline until you push gas in the next junction upstream of it to go back into the launcher? Is there any other solution you guys could recommend? Thanks a bunch.
