Securing system for cable and tube in tubular column
A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230304360A1) describes a securing system designed to secure a cable to a tube for various applications in the oil & gas, energy, or storage industries. The system includes a bearing surface and an outside surface, with the bearing surface turned inwardly to create an inside housing for the tube, and the outside surface turned outwardly. The system also features a tube fixing mechanism that can be in an open or closed state. In the closed state, the tube fixing mechanism fixes the securing system on the tube, with the tube housed inside the inside housing. The tube fixing mechanism is mobile relative to the tube in the open state. The tube fixing mechanism consists of a band that extends along a longitudinal axis, radially around the tube, and forms the bearing surface.
Additionally, the securing system includes a cable securing mechanism with an outside housing for securing the cable. The outside housing has an opening on the outside surface to receive the cable inside. The tube fixing mechanism comprises a central body, and the band has a first terminal end fixed to the central body and a second terminal end mounted on the central body in a mobile manner between a closed position and a remote position.
The patent also describes various components and features of the securing system. For example, the first terminal end of the band includes a first terminal sleeve housing a first shaft that fixes the central body to the band. The second terminal end of the band includes a second terminal sleeve housing a second shaft. The central body includes a locking mechanism that brings the second terminal end of the band and the central body closer to each other in the closed state. This locking mechanism consists of a locking lever pivotably mounted on the central body, which can rotate between an open and closed state. The locking lever is pivotably mounted on a rotational shaft parallel to the longitudinal axis of the tube fixing mechanism. A pretension screw is used to lock the rotational shaft and the shaft together in the closed state.
Furthermore, the central body may include at least one terminal sleeve configured to house the shaft. The outside housing of the cable securing mechanism includes at least one longitudinal groove parallel to the longitudinal axis, which can house at least one cable. The locking lever has an inner surface facing the central body and the outside surface of the tube in the closed state, with a grabbing surface designed to clamp the cable. The cable securing mechanism also includes a holding mechanism to maintain the locking lever in the closed state.
Overall, this patent describes a securing system that provides a reliable and efficient way to secure a cable to a tube in various applications within the oil & gas, energy, or storage industries.
