Title
(EN) CYLINDRICAL MEMBER MAINTENANCE DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE MAINTENANCE D'ELEMENT CYLINDRIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A cylindrical member maintenance device is comprised of a housing (10) comprised of two hinged halves (11, 12) for being closed around a cylindrical member (13), such as a stranded steel cable. A rotary helical brush assembly (21) and a rotary longitudinal brush assembly (22) are positioned in the housing and rotatable about an axis of the housing. Each rotary brush assembly is comprised of coaxial split rings (23, 26) with rotary cylindrical wire brushes (25, 28) connected in between and which are independently rotatable about their own axes. Nozzles (29) are positioned on the inside of the housing for applying a cleaning fluid or paint to the cylindrical member. Apertures (32) in the housing are for connecting to a suction device for removing debris, cleaning fluid, and paint to avoid contaminating the environment. Loops (18) on the housing are for attaching to cables for moving the housing along the cylindrical member.
(FR)
Dispositif de maintenance d'élément cylindrique comprenant un logement (10) comprenant deux moitiés articulées (11, 12) étant fermées autour d'un élément cylindrique (13), tel qu'un câble d'acier toronné. Un ensemble (21) balai hélicoïdal tournant et un ensemble (22) balai longitudinal tournant sont positionnés dans le logement et peuvent tourner autour d'un axe du logement. Chaque ensemble balai tournant comprend des rondelles (23, 26) coaxiales fendues avec des balais (25, 28) tournants cylindriques de fil métallique, reliés entre eux et qui peuvent tourner indépendamment autour de leurs axes propres. Des embouts (29) sont positionnés à l'intérieur du logement pour l'application d'un liquide de nettoyage ou de peinture sur l'élément cylindrique. Des ouvertures (32) dans le logement permettent de connecter un dispositif d'aspiration pour le retrait de débris, de liquide de nettoyage et de peinture pour empêcher la pollution de l'environnement. Des boucles (18) sur le logement permettent la fixation de câbles, pour déplacer le logement le long de l'élément cylindrique.
