Title
(EN) FLOW MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS AND RELATED METHODS FOR OIL AND GAS APPLICATIONS
(FR) SYSTÈMES DE GESTION D'ÉCOULEMENT ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS POUR DES APPLICATIONS DE PÉTROLE ET DE GAZ
Abstract
(EN) A flow management system includes an expandable device configured for attachment to a wall surface of a conduit and being adjustable between an expanded configuration and a collapsed configuration, an electric actuator in fluid communication with the expandable device, and a control module. The control module is configured to control the electric actuator to flow a current to the expandable device to expand the expandable device for compacting a flow blockage within the conduit to create a channel adjacent the flow blockage and to terminate a flow of the current to the expandable device to collapse the expandable device for opening the channel to a fluid flow within the conduit.
(FR) Système de gestion d'écoulement comprenant un dispositif extensible conçu pour être fixé à une surface de paroi d'un conduit et pouvant être réglé entre une configuration étendue et une configuration repliée, un actionneur électrique en communication fluidique avec le dispositif extensible, et un module de commande. Le module de commande est conçu pour commander à l'actionneur électrique de faire circuler un courant jusqu'au dispositif extensible afin d'étendre le dispositif extensible pour compacter un blocage d'écoulement à l'intérieur du conduit afin de créer un canal adjacent au blocage d'écoulement, et de mettre fin à une circulation du courant jusqu'au dispositif extensible afin de replier le dispositif extensible pour ouvrir le canal à un écoulement de fluide à l'intérieur du conduit.
