Title (EN) QUICK CONNECTION MATING PART COUPLER
(FR) COUPLEUR DE PARTIES APPARIEES A RACCORD RAPIDE
Abstract:
(EN) A coupler body (12) with a socket (44) therein is attached to nuclear steam generator tools to be mated with an arm (22) of a remotely controlled manipulator. A plug (16) for insertion in socket (44) is mounted with a ball detent lock actuating air cylinder (18) on L-shaped bracket (20) attached to the end of arm (22). Cam surfaces (62) on body (12) and (64) on bracket (20) align the plug (16) and socket (44) for insertion to mate and couple the tools and arm (22).
(FR) Un corps de coupleur (12), dans lequel se trouve une prise femelle (44), est fixé à des outils nucléaires de production de vapeur, à apparier à un bras (22) d'un manipulateur télécommandé. Une prise mâle (16) destinée à être insérée dans une prise femelle (44), est montée à l'aide d'un cylindre à air (18) actionnant une serrure à détente sphérique, sur un support (20) en forme de L fixé à l'extrémité du bras (22). Des surfaces à came (62) situées sur le corps (12 et 64) se trouvant sur le support (20) alignent la prise mâle (16) et la prise femelle (44) afin de procéder à une insertion, de manière à apparier et accoupler les outils et le bras (22).
