English term or phrase:spool piece
Procédure de sécurité à appliquer avant de pénétrer dans un "espace clos" (Pas plus de contexte.)
Remove a valve, ***spool piece***, or expansion joint in piping to, and as close as possible to, the confined space, and blank or blind a pipe or duct at the nearest accessible point to the confined space.
Explanation: " A spool piece is a smallish length of pipe used for two purposes:
* To connect two pipeline systems
* To handle thermal expansion (When a gas is heated, its molecules move faster. This causes a pressure increase which, if not constrained, causes the gas to expand over a larger volume)" http://thaijournal.wordpress.com/2007/03/20/spool-piece-inst...
