Title (EN) A TUBE JOINT AND A METHOD OF BONDING TUBES
(FR) RACCORD DE TUBE ET PROCEDE DE SOUDAGE DE TUBES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention is a method of bonding a first fluid conduit (14) to one or more other fluid conduits (12) or elements such as an electrode (92) or heating element. The method comprises positioning a first fluid conduit (14) substantially in contact with the other fluid conduits or elements (12) wherein a bond region (16) is created. The bond region is wetted with a liquefied thermoplastic polymer (34) which is then subsequently cooled forming a substantially fluid tight bond between the first fluid conduit (14) and the other fluid conduits or elements (14).
(FR)L’invention concerne un procédé de soudage d’une première conduite de fluide (14) à une ou plusieurs autres conduites de fluide (12) ou éléments tels qu’une électrode (92) ou un élément chauffant. Le procédé comprend la mise en place d’une première conduite de fluide (14) sensiblement au contact des autres conduites de fluide (12) ou éléments pour créer une région de soudage (16). La région de soudage est mouillée à l’aide d’un polymère thermoplastique liquéfié (34) qui est ensuite refroidi pour former un soudage sensiblement étanche aux fluides entre la première conduite de fluide (14) et les autres conduites de fluide (12) ou éléments.
