Title (EN) SYSTEM FOR AND METHOD OF SEALING A FLOWLINE WITH A METAL SEAL AFTER HOT TAPPING
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ D'ÉTANCHÉIFICATION DE CONDUITE D'ÉCOULEMENT À L'AIDE DE JOINT MÉTALLIQUE APRÈS PIQUAGE À VIF
Abstract:
(EN) In embodiments, a hot tap clamping [0043] system comprises a clamp which fits over and secures against a pipe (1), an actuator interface (40), an actuator (13) operatively in communication with clamp, and a hot tap assembly (20). In a further embodiment, a system for sealing a flowline with a metal seal after hot tapping (1) comprises a sealer (401), a hot tap drill/plug running tool (402), and a metal seal plug (430) which is typically configured for use in sealing a flowline, e.g. pipe 1 (Fig. 1), with a metal seal after hot tapping where the metal plug seal is inserted into the pipe and engages with and seals as a hot tap.
(FR) Selon certains modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne un système de fixation [0043] de piquage à vif qui comprend une pince s'adaptant sur un tuyau (1) et se fixant contre ce dernier, une interface (40) d'actionneur, un actionneur (13) en communication fonctionnelle avec la pince, et un ensemble de piquage à vif (20). Selon un autre mode de réalisation, un système destiné à étanchéifier une conduite d'écoulement à l'aide d'un joint métallique après le piquage à vif (1) comprend un obturateur (401), un outil (402) de pose de foret/bouchon de piquage à vif et un bouchon d'étanchéité métallique (430), habituellement conçu pour étanchéifier une conduite d'écoulement, par exemple un tuyau (1) (Fig. 1), à l'aide d'un joint métallique après le piquage à vif, le bouchon d'étanchéité métallique étant introduit dans le tuyau et entrant en prise avec le piquage à vif et le rendant étanche.
