Title (EN) CONNECTION FITTING FOR A FLEXIBLE PIPE AND ASSOCIATED ASSEMBLY METHOD
(FR) EMBOUT DE CONNEXION D'UNE CONDUITE FLEXIBLE ET PROCÉDÉ DE MONTAGE ASSOCIÉ
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a connection fitting for a flexible pipe (10) for transporting fluid. The flexible pipe (10) comprises at least one tubular sheath (20) and at least one layer (24, 25) of tensile armour arranged on the outside with respect to the tubular sheath (20), the layer of armour (24, 25) comprising a plurality of wire-like armour elements (29). The fitting comprises at least one end portion of each armour element, an end dome and a cap fixed to the end dome, the end dome and the cap defining between one another a chamber for receiving each end portion, the receiving chamber being filled with a filler material. The filler material is an epoxy resin comprising carbon nanotubes chemically bonded to the epoxy resin. Such a fitting has improved axial tension recovery and reduced risk of fatigue failure.
(FR) L'invention concerne un embout de connexion d'une conduite flexible (10) de transport de fluide. La conduite flexible (10) comprend au moins une gaine tubulaire (20) et au moins une couche (24, 25) d'amures de traction disposée extérieurement par rapport à la gaine tubulaire (20), la couche d'armures (24, 25) comprenant une pluralité d'éléments d'armure (29) filiformes. L'embout comporte au moins un tronçon d'extrémité de chaque élément d'armure, une voûte d'extrémité et un capot fixé sur la voûte d'extrémité, la voûte d'extrémité et le capot délimitant entre eux une chambre de réception de chaque tronçon d'extrémité, la chambre de réception étant remplie d'un matériau de remplissage. Le matériau de remplissage est une résine époxy comprenant des nanotubes de carbone liés chimiquement à la résine époxy. Un tel embout présente une reprise en tension axiale améliorée et un risque de défaillance en fatigue diminué.
