Title (EN) FLUID CONTAINER
(FR) RECIPIENT POUR FLUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) A fluid container (1) for containing a fluid under pressure, comprising a tubular member (2) closed by a closure member (3), said closure member (3) having a tubular part (34) extending generally axially within the tubular member (2) to form at least one peripheral space (G) between the closure member (3) and tubular member (2), the space being sealed from the inside of the container and having at least one vent passage (5) leading from the space to outside the container (1). This construction enables radial pressure inside the container (1) to assist in providing a strong joint. The container (1) may include a pressure-relief safety device in the form of at least one frangible wall portion (R) of said tubular part (3A), said frangible wall portion (R) being arranged to break in the event that the pressure in the container (1) exceeds a predetermined safety limit.
(FR) Récipient (1) pour fluide, destiné à contenir un fluide sous pression et comprenant un élément tubulaire (2) refermé par un élément de fermeture (3), ledit élément de fermeture (3) comprenant une partie tubulaire (34) s'étendant de manière généralement axiale à l'intérieur de l'élément tubulaire (2) pour former au moins un espace périphérique (G) entre l'élément de fermeture (3) et l'élément tubulaire (2), l'espace étant hermétiquement fermé par rapport à l'intérieur du récipient et comprenant au moins un passage d'aération (5) faisant communiquer l'espace avec l'extérieur du récipient (1). Cette structure permet à la pression radiale à l'intérieur du récipient (1) d'aider à produire un joint résistant. Le récipient (1) peut comprendre un dispositif de securité de libération de pression sous forme d'au moins une partie de paroi cassable (R) se trouvant dans ladite partie tubulaire (3A), ladite partie de paroi cassable (R) étant conçue de façon à se casser dans l'éventualité où la pression à l'intérieur du récipient (1) dépasserait une limite de sécurité prédéterminée.
