Annular blowout preventer
A large valve, usually installed above the ram preventers, that forms a seal in the annular space between the pipe and well bore or, if no pipe is present, on the well bore itself. Compare ram blowout preventer
RAM- The closing and sealing component on a blowout preventer. Rams are of three types: blind, pipe, and shear. Pipe rams, when closed, have a configuration such that they seal around the pipe; shear rams cut through drill pipe and then form a seal. Blind rams seal on each other with no pipe in the wellbore.

My first thought was "blowout preventer", as found at wellheads, but if we are in a factory (assuming this is "usine" and it is a manufacturing plant, rather than the gas plant itself), then this is unlikely.
It seems strange that they should used "obturateur" rather than "vanne", for example, but then again, maybe they didn't want to be restrictive by choosing one of clapet, vanne, valve, robinet, etc.
Also wonder if they are referring to blind flanges.
A few more words on either side of this passage might help.
