plug trap

Pipeline plug - Patent 5293905
The pressure of the flow in the pipeline then propels the plug to a downstream located plug trap (not shown) as is well known in the art. ...

Or could it be a pig trap? This seems a much more common expression.
Don't know the Russian for pig in this sense, but here are some definitions of pig:

# A device placed inside a pipeline that is used to clean or scrape residues from the inner wall of the pipe.

# Internal Pipeline Inspection / Cleaning Device

# A device with optional elastomer cups inserted into a pipeline to perform any one of a number of functions: cleaning, displacement, batching, or internal inspection. It gets its name from the squealing noises the pipeline pigs made when first used.
