Title (EN) BALL JOINT FOR PIPE CONNECTION AND PIPE CONNECTION
(FR) JOINT À ROTULE POUR RACCORDEMENT DE TUYAU ET RACCORD DE TUYAU
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a ball joint (1) for connecting two floating pipes, said joint comprising an inner shell part, an outer shell part and a clamp (50) with segments (60, 70, 80) that are moveable in a common plane (C) between an open position in which at least one of the shell parts is moveable into and out of the clamp, and a clamping position in which movement of both shell parts along the longitudinal centre lines is prevented. The ball joint is provided with a remote controlled actuator (40) for driving movement of the segments between the open and closed position, without requiring nearby personnel to keep the shell parts aligned. The invention further relates to such a clamp and to a method of connecting such a ball joint to two pipes.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un joint à rotule (1) destiné à relier deux tuyaux flottants, ledit joint comprenant une partie coque interne, une partie coque externe et une pince (50) pourvue de segments (60, 70, 80) qui sont mobiles dans un plan commun (C) entre une position ouverte dans laquelle au moins une des parties coque est mobile dans et hors de la pince, et une position de serrage dans laquelle le mouvement des deux parties coque le long des lignes de centre longitudinal est empêché. Le joint à rotule est pourvu d'un actionneur (40) commandé à distance destiné à entraîner un mouvement des segments entre les positions ouverte et fermée, sans qu'il soit nécessaire qu'un personnel situé à proximité maintienne les parties coque alignées. L'invention concerne en outre une telle pince et un procédé de raccordement d'un tel joint à rotule à deux tuyaux.
