The article analyzes the forces acting on the inline cleaning units of new design, operating on a bailer principle. In this case all cleaning products are collected in the internal cavity of the cleaning unit, which eliminates the formation of the ground plug and can significantly reduce the friction of the cleaning unit on the inner surface of the pipeline. The moving of the cleaning units of the given design within the space of a curved steel pipeline is investigated, the solution of the obtained equations and their analysis related to pipeline submerged crossing are shown.
