Title

(FR) SYSTÈME DE MESURE DE DIMENSIONNES EXTERNES DESTINÉ À DES ÉLÉMENTS TUBULAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
The disclosure relates to an outer dimension measurement apparatus for tubulars. The apparatus includes a first wheel and a second wheel, which may be applied to different sections of a tubular. The ratio between the outer dimensions of the different sections may be estimated based on the relationship between the rates of rotations of the first and second wheels when the tubular is rotated. The apparatus may include a tubular rotation sensor that, with either the first wheel or the second wheel, may be used to determine the outer dimension of the tubular at the point along the tubular's length when the respective wheel is applied. The methods include estimating a ratio between outer dimensions of sections of a tubular and estimating the outer dimension of the tubular at a specific point along its length using embodiments of the apparatus.

L'invention concerne un appareil de mesure de dimensions externes destiné à des éléments tubulaires. L'appareil comprend une première roue et une seconde roue, qui peuvent être appliquées à différentes sections d'un élément tubulaire. Le rapport entre les dimensions externes des différentes sections peut être estimé sur la base de la relation entre les vitesses de rotations des première et seconde roues lorsque l'élément tubulaire est mis en rotation. L'appareil peut comprendre un capteur de rotation d’élément tubulaire qui, à l’aide soit de la première roue, soit de la seconde roue, peut être utilisé pour déterminer la dimension externe de l'élément tubulaire en un point sur la longueur de l'élément tubulaire lorsque la roue respective est appliquée. Les procédés consistent à estimer un rapport entre des dimensions externes de sections d'un élément tubulaire et à estimer la dimension externe de l'élément tubulaire en un point spécifique sur sa longueur à l'aide de modes de réalisation de l'appareil.
