Title
(EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR INSPECTING A THREADING OF A TUBULAR CONNECTION USED IN THE OIL INDUSTRY
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIF D'INSPECTION DU FILETAGE D'UN RACCORDEMENT TUBULAIRE UTILISÉ DANS L'INDUSTRIE PÉTROLIÈRE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention concerns a device for inspecting a threading (fc) of a tubular component for the exploration or working of hydrocarbon wells, the device comprising a threaded support (14) which can cooperate by makeup with the threading (fc) of the tubular component, means (12, fs) for blocking the advance of the threaded support (14) during makeup with the threading (fc) of the tubular component, a longitudinal rail (2) fixed to the means (12, fs) for blocking the advance of the threaded support (14) and extending in a direction belonging to a plane passing through the axis of the threading of the treaded support (14), means (9) for inspecting the treading of the tubular component (fc), and means (4) for longitudinal guidance in order to guide the means (9) for inspecting the treading in translation along the longitudinal rail (2). The invention also concerns methods using the device.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif d'inspection du filetage (fc) d'un composant tubulaire utilisé pour l'exploration ou le fonctionnement de puits d'hydrocarbures. Le dispositif comprend un support fileté (14) pouvant coopérer par vissage avec le filetage (fc) du composant tubulaire, des moyens (12, fs) servant à bloquer la progression du support fileté (14) lors du vissage avec le filetage (fc) du composant tubulaire, un rail longitudinal (2) fixé aux moyens (12, fs) servant à bloquer la progression du support fileté (14) et se prolongeant dans une direction appartenant à un plan passant par l'axe du filetage du support fileté (14), un moyen (9) servant à inspecter le filetage du composant tubulaire (fc), et un moyen (4) de guidage longitudinal servant à guider le moyen (9) pour inspecter le filetage en translation le long du rail longitudinal (2). L'invention concerne également des procédés utilisant le dispositif.
