Title (EN) INSULATED FLUID CONDUIT
(FR) CONDUITE DE FLUIDE ISOLÉE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides an insulated fluid conduit useful in facilities in which a hot fluid susceptible to one or more deleterious phase changes in response to heat loss to a cold environment is transported. Such conduits may be particularly well suited to improve thermal control in sub sea hydrocarbon production operations. The fluid conduit includes an inner first insulating layer containing a first polymer matrix, and a first phase change material undergoing a phase change at Ti. The fluid conduit includes an outer second insulating layer containing a second polymer matrix, and a second phase change material undergoing a phase change at T2, wherein Ti is greater than T2. One or more barrier layers inhibit migration of the phase change material from the insulation layers and into the environment. In one or more embodiments, the phase change material is present as a micro encapsulated phase change material.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une conduite de fluide isolée qui s'utilise dans des installations dans lesquelles un fluide chaud, sensible à un ou à plusieurs changements de phase nuisibles en réponse à la perte de chaleur dans un environnement froid, est transporté. De telles conduites peuvent être particulièrement bien appropriées pour améliorer une régulation thermique dans des opérations de production d'hydrocarbures sous-marines. La conduite de fluide comprend une première couche isolante interne, contenant une première matrice polymère, et un premier matériau de changement de phase subissant un changement de phase à Ti. La conduite de fluide comprend une seconde couche isolante externe, contenant une seconde matrice polymère, et un second matériau de changement de phase subissant un changement de phase à T2, Ti étant supérieur à T2. Une ou plusieurs couches barrières inhibent la migration du matériau de changement de phase depuis les couches d'isolation et dans l'environnement. Dans un ou plusieurs modes de réalisation, le matériau de changement de phase est présent sous forme de matériau de changement de phase micro-encapsulé.
