Title (EN) PIG LAUNCHER
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE LANCEMENT DE RACLEURS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus (10) for launching one or more pigs (5) for cleaning of production flow lines, or tubing, on the sea bed is shown. The apparatus includes a lifting frame (1) retaining a charging pipe (3) which is able to carry a train of pigs (5I-5JO) resting stand-by in the charging pipe (3), a plurality of valves (V1-V4) which on the one side is in fluid communication with the charging pipe (3), and on the other side is in fluid communication with a high pressure drive fluid different from the production flow, a connecting means (2) for connecting of the apparatus (10) to a closable pipe sub leading to the production flow line to be pigged, and an actuatable piston (4) which is able to displace the train of pigs within the charging pipe (3).
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil (10) servant à lancer un ou plusieurs racleurs (5) dans le but de nettoyer des lignes de production, ou des tubes d'écoulement, au fond de la mer. Cet appareil comprend: une structure de levage (1) retenant un tube de chargement (3) pouvant transporter un ensemble de racleurs (5I-5JO) demeurant en attente dans le tube de chargement (3); une pluralité de soupapes (V1-V4) qui sont en communication fluidique, d'un côté, avec le tube de chargement (3) et, de l'autre côté, avec un fluide pousseur haute pression, différent de l'écoulement de production; un moyen de raccordement (2) servant à raccorder l'appareil (10) à une réduction pouvant être obturée et conduisant à la ligne de production à racler; ainsi qu'un piston actionnable (4) pouvant déplacer l'ensemble de racleurs à l'intérieur du tube de chargement (3).
