Title
(EN) PIVOTING RING SEAL
(FR) JOINT ANNULAIRE PIVOTANT
Abstract
(EN)
The instant invention provides for a pivoting ring that can be used as a seal for an inflatable member. The pivoting ring seal offers a mechanical action which acts to tighten with increasing inflation and/or expansion of an inflatable member. As the inflatable member increases in pressure and/or size, one side of the ring is lifted and pivots around a fulcrum in the middle of the ring seal causing the opposite side of the ring seal to decrease in diameter. The pivot ring causes the opposite part of the seal to tighten about an inner member allowing for a higher-pressure seal. In addition to a higher pressure seal, the working length of the inflatable member can be adjusted by moving the ring along the length of the inflatable member.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une bague pivotante qui peut être utilisée en tant que joint pour un élément gonflable. Le joint annulaire pivotant a une action mécanique qui agit pour serrer avec l'augmentation du gonflage et/ou l'expansion d'un élément gonflable. Alors que la pression et/ou la taille de l'élément gonflable augmentent, un côté de la bague est soulevé et pivote autour d'un pivot au centre du joint annulaire, amenant le diamètre du joint annulaire du côté opposé à diminuer. La bague de pivotement amène la partie opposée du joint à se serrer autour d'un élément intérieur réalisant un joint à plus haute pression. En plus d'un joint à plus haute pression, la longueur de travail de l'élément gonflable peut être ajustée en déplaçant la bague le long de la longueur de l'élément gonflable.
