Title
(EN) DIVERTING PIGS IN A PIPELINE OR PIPING SYSTEM
(FR) DÉFLECTION DE RACLEURS DANS UN SYSTÈME DE PIPELINE OU DE CANALISATION
Abstract
(EN)
A pig diverter (10) comprises a hollow housing (24) having a flowline inlet port (30), a flowline outlet port (32), a pig entry opening (34) and a pig exit opening (36), all communicating with the interior of the housing. A tubular pig holder (44) enclosed by the housing is pivotable between a receiving position and a launching position. In the receiving position, the pig holder is aligned with the pig entry opening to receive a pig (22) and effects fluid communication between the pig entry opening and the flowline outlet port. In the launching position, the pig holder is aligned with the pig exit opening to launch a pig and effects fluid communication between the flowline inlet port and the pig exit opening.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un déflecteur de racleur (10) qui comprend un boîtier creux (24) comportant un orifice d'entrée de conduite d'écoulement (30), un orifice de sortie de conduite d'écoulement (32), une ouverture d'entrée de racleur (34) et une ouverture de sortie de racleur (36), communiquant tous avec l'intérieur du boîtier. Un support tubulaire de racleur (44) enserré par le boîtier peut pivoter entre une position de réception et une position de lancement. Dans la position de réception, le support de racleur est aligné sur l'ouverture d'entrée de racleur pour recevoir un racleur (22) et permet une communication fluidique entre l'ouverture d'entrée de racleur et l'orifice de sortie de conduite d'écoulement. Dans la position de lancement, le support de racleur est aligné sur l'ouverture de sortie de racleur pour lancer un racleur et permettre une communication fluidique entre l'orifice d'entrée de conduite d'écoulement et l'ouverture de sortie de racleur.
