The technical FIELD

The subject of this invention is a high-strength threaded pipe connection, with exceptional sealing properties and intended to be used essentially in all industries.

The LEVEL of TECHNOLOGY

Threaded pipe connections, which connect the joints of pipes and which provide a seal between them to prevent leakage fluid from the pipe, has been used for centuries in step threading made as close as possible to step the internal threads. Most of the threads currently in use in pipe joints are tapered, so the pressure on the border between threads increases with each added twist to such a degree of tension, which is considered sufficient to prevent loosening and leakage of fluid from the pipe. If the pressure at the boundary is too low, it will lead to a weakening of the thread and leakage, if it is too high, this may cause a plastic deformation of the truss element, i.e. the end with an external thread, or female element, i.e. the end with internal thread, so that the suitability of a thread may be in question. With increasing pipe sizes and pressure of the fluid gradually changed material is s pipe, since bamboo and turning to wood, copper, iron, steel, and sometimes to high-strength, high-temperature alloys with the need to preserve the strength and integrity, which in turn requires an increase in radial threaded tension and pressure at the boundary between adjacent turns of the thread. In the framework of this proposal:

- angle thread profile is measured in a plane coinciding with the axis of the pipe, the gap between the working party thread and a plane perpendicular to the axis of the pipe,

- rod element is a tubular element with an external thread,

- the female element is a tubular element with a mating internal thread intended for connection with the core element,

- one thread corresponds to one revolution of the thread

- step corresponds to the axial length of the thread as you move forward in one revolution,

negative side surface of the thread corresponds to the side that faces to a greater extent in the direction of the hollow profile,

positive side thread surface corresponds to the side that is facing more towards the top of the profile,

thread hook type is a thread with a negative angle profile

- the expression "the invention" means the subject of this is awci.

Historically, the threaded rod element was carried out with the same taper and step, and that coupled with her thread female element, while in U.S. patent No. 4974882 name watts was not informed that the external thread can run on a cone with a smaller slope than in the case of an internal thread, to ensure arise at the time of Assembly, the maximum radial interference fit between the mating threads at the end of the threaded connection of small diameter, which facilitates the Assembly of the rod and the nesting of the elements, enhances the strength of the threaded connection and contributes to its density.

In U.S. patent No. 6976711 name Sivley reported change step in your profile and/or the step of the rear profile of the paired thread rod and nesting of elements, so that the steps in the workflow thread profile and steps back thread profile is equal to the average step at a selected distance from the end of the threads, and the steps in the workflow thread profile and the rear thread profile differ from each other by at least some portion of the length of the thread", but in the mentioned patent is not informed about the change step, the outer thread concerning a pitch of the internal thread and no mention of any inconsistency step, which arises due to Poisson's ratio in the Assembly of outer and inner threads. Whereas in the Iman patents No. 04-1039, - 1040 (Invitroge v. Clontech Lab), patent No. 6976711 does not apply to prior art, since it does not mention about the problem or its solutions. According to the applicant, and according to the information available to it, does not currently have any information about the implementation of corrective operations, providing intimate contact between mating threads or compensating the inconsistency of their steps, caused by radial tension.

To demonstrate some of the problems solved by this invention, figure 1 shows the first type of damage is often encountered in the prior art, for example in a round pipe threads 8 threads per inch standard API specification 5B, when the Assembly of the breeding element 57 and the rod element 50 causes compression of the specified core element in the radial direction, causing the elongation in the axial direction, and also extends the socket element in the radial direction, causing the shortening in the axial direction, the difference in lengths presses the rear side 52 of the threaded rod member to the back side 53 of the female thread element with the angle of 30°, resulting radial component of the axial force moves the end surface 54 of the truss element inside and removes it from contact with the adjacent inner is her thread 55, that weakens the connection, as in this case, the contact is fewer turns of thread, opposing axial loads, and, furthermore, it opens a spiral channel 56 from leaking between the mating threads.

Figure 2 shows a second type of damage is normal threads, such as round pipe threads 8 threads per inch standard API specification 5B, after exposure to the external pressure of the fluid acting on the perimeter of the socket element 61 and increases the annular compressive stress on the end surface 62 of the truss element due to the threaded tension arising from the Assembly. The interaction of forces causes the plastic deformation of the end of the rod element and the weakening of the contact between the internal thread 63 female element and related external thread 64 of the truss element, resulting after a reset, the external pressure remains open both axial and helical channel 67 leaks, preventing mates and tight contact of the threads under the action of the internal pressure of the fluid after still elastic socket element returns to its original diameter, and the truss element is deformed at its end surface, not because of the ring strain compression ratio has the highest value near the specified behavior of the displacement. Damage to the first and second type most likely to occur in compounds in which the thickness of the core element around its end surface is smaller than the thickness of the adjacent wall of the socket element.

Figure 6 illustrates the primary contact between the regular threads, such as round pipe threads 8 threads per inch standard API specification 5B, when the institution in the angular position, which provides the smallest angle 68 pressure for a thread of this type, formed between the axis of the pipe 25 and the vector 46 of force passing through the point 93 of mutual contact, and the lowest possible pressure angle equal to the angle 81 of inclination of the rear profile. These threads are back working surface 70 of the outer thread, the top 74 and the rear working surface 71 of the internal thread, angled 81. Figure 7 illustrates the primary contact between the outer and inner threads at their institution in the angular position, which provides a very wide angle of 79 pressure, which can lead to damage of the third type, in which the top 74 of the profile of the truss element is in contact with the top 77 of the rear profile of the breeding element and which occurs due to a too large angle 79 pressure, creating too much tension shear between paired rear profiles at point 82 mutual touch is directed and, the specified vector 76 forces. The rear surface of the truss element are surface 74 formed between the rear of the working surface 70 of the specified element and the top 74 of the outer thread. The rear surface of the female element are surface 75 formed between the rear surface 71 of the specified element and the top 77 of the internal thread. The surface 74, 75 may be arcuate, conical, or other shape provides maximum prevention of damage of sharp corners when you move that would have occurred in another form surfaces, are well known in the art. This refers to the trapezoidal thread API standard and other types of threads, having a cylindrical top with recesses between the side surface and the top. After the establishment of the truss element in the female element is usually performed his turn on the part of the turnover in the direction opposite to the screwing, in an attempt to reach the angular position corresponding to the minimum pressure angle for the design of the carving depicted in Fig.6. Depending on the angular position between the rod and socket elements in the establishment of the pressure angle may vary from a minimum angle equal to the angle 81 of the slope profile, up to an angle of almost 90°indicated in Fig.7. number 79 position. Increasing the pressure angle increases the specific the voltage collapse between the threads at the point 82 mutual touch, which increases the torque required for turning the rod element at the first element in overcoming the frictional forces resulting from the weight of the exciting tube. When increasing the pressure angle increases the force vector, and depending on the weight of the exciting pipe friction force can become so large that thread tear, davinciaudio skewed and/or blocked, which prevents the proper assembling the rod and socket elements. The smaller the tip radius and the faster the rotation is carried out in the reverse direction, the higher the probability that the inertia of the pipe during reverse rotation will cause the truss element will be the corner of a critical point before the force of gravity will cause it to lowering one coil to achieve the most advantageous position, but after the passage of the optimum position depicted in Fig.6, again there is a threat of damage to the third type within a distance of less than one orbit.

Used for many years a coupling joint with compressed ends, as a rule, possess a strength that constitutes 65% of the strength of the pipe, and in some cases up to 75% on the strength of the pipe body when executed on a certain thick-walled pipes. They can't show higher values, because the threaded connection is robotic not across the wall of the socket element, and ends in objetos part, executed on the same cone that thread, and this reduces the critical area of the cervix female element to a value of not more than 75% of the cross-sectional area of the pipe wall if the position of the threads is strictly regulated both in axial and in radial direction relative to objetos wall. However, such a strict positioning of the threads cannot be maintained during the application thread in the manufacturing process, so the resulting efficiency is known crimp connections, generally limited by the strength values that make up less than 75% of the strength of the pipe.

In the report of the American petroleum Institute (API) reported that 90-95% of the problems in the deep wells caused by a leaking pipe threads, and protocols ANI records exist on a large number of experiments, by which attempts were made to find out the cause of the leaking pipe threads during operation. For a long time in ANI mistakenly believed that all pipe threads API specification 5B, covered with sealing grease API 5A2, ensure integrity, as evidenced by the fact that the tolerances and dimensions of the threads 5V, and used sealing lubrication API 5A2 essentially has not changed since then, as they were approved in 1939, and prior to issuance of the 1995 U.S. patent No. 5427418, which was the proposed solution to this problem. At the moment the applicant is not found in the prior art sources, wherever it was reported that when the Assembly is mated threads of equal axial length of the step, damage-prone first, second and third types, and also pointed out the solutions to these problems, resulting in the identification of the essence of the problems and proposed solutions identified in this application are advanced to the prior art.

Description of the INVENTION

The present invention describes a method of preventing damage of the first, second and third type, and describes the new tube design, which essentially ahead of the prior art. When assembling threaded pipe connection rod element is screwed into the female element, this increases the radial interference fit between the mating threads, which reduces the diameter of the truss element and increases the diameter of the socket element, and in accordance with Poisson's ratio of the change in diameter causes a lengthening of the rod element and the shortening of the breeding element in the axial direction, leading to inconsistencies between the inner and outer threads, which initially have equal spacing. The degree of inconsistency depends on the thread diameter, thread pitch, radial tension and adjusted the rate of the Poisson for the pipe material.

Damage of the first type can be eliminated by performing an outer thread with a pitch smaller than the pitch of the inside thread, to ensure the elongation in the axial direction of the rod element and compression in the axial direction of the nesting element during Assembly, so that the final Assembly step of the outer thread was essentially equal step related internal thread to ensure better compliance profiles of these threads, which increases the structural strength of the connection and sealing of threads for lighter fluid and fluid under higher pressure. To achieve the above improvements either the outer or inner thread can be executed with a constant pitch, and the other thread made adjustable step, the step of threading will be lower step of the internal thread. At a given value of the Diametric interference fit between mating threads per unit of diameter adjustment per unit axial length is equal to the specific diametrically the tension multiplied by the Poisson's ratio. For example, if you want to collect with tightness 0.75 mm (0,030 inch) pipe threads, having a nominal diameter of 25 cm (10 inches) and Poisson's ratio of 0.28, specific diametrical tension will be equal 0,030”/10”=of 0.003 inch (0.075 mm) per inch is iameter, and the adjustable length between the mating rod and socket elements will be equal 0,0030”×0.28 in=0,00084 inch (0.02 mm) per inch of axial length. In this case, if the thread is made with a nominal pitch of 6 mm (1/4”), the adjustment step is equal 0,00084/4=0,00021” (0,0005 mm), and all the adjustment can only be applied to one of the paired threads or split between threads, for example can be extended step internal thread on 0,00007” (0,002 mm), and the step of threading to shorten to 0,00014” (0,004 mm). The invention can be performed with varying degrees of accuracy depending on the operational requirements of the threads, and price restrictions.

In the case of a significant difference in the specific radial tension along the axis of the mating threads, which occurs between the inner and outer threads executed at the same cones, and/or when the outer thread has a more gentle taper than the internal thread may be the preferred variable pitch adjustment, depending on the requirements for precision landing between mating threads for specific cases of use. The fit is perfect, if step changes with each turn of the thread, but if you do not require very high precision, the step may vary stepwise or in a few turns of thread, which roughly corresponds to the ideal change in W is ha on stage.

In addition, the proposed connection provides the ability to prevent damage of the second type. Preferably use threads hook type with additional adjustment step in the interval between the end of the rod element and its middle which is added to the above described adjustment of step with the provision in the assembled state of axial tension in this part of the truss element or for simple closure of paired threads, or for clamping provided in combination with the effect of radial pressure on the border, which may occur between the mating threads. It is well known that a negative angle of inclination of the working thread profile hook type prevents "bounce" outer thread of the internal thread in the case of exposure to high drive forces generated in the connection, but so far no reports that the step threading shorter compared to the step related internal thread, as described above, can provide a bond of paired threads of a hook type regardless of the radial tension of the thread. This creates a tensile force in a truss member between its front surface and the middle part to ensure increase in both radial and axial pressure on the page between mating threads. Bulletin S (4.2) ANI reported that "internal pressure leak resistance is equal to the pressure on the border, but only the pressure at the boundary created by a circumferential compression rod element, and not reported any other way to create or maintain pressure on the border. Adjust the length of the step between the inner and outer threads required in specific cases of operation to ensure the establishment of such a load at a negative angle of inclination of the working profile, which is sufficient to maintain a tight connection rod elements and associated internal threads without using radial threaded preload can be calculated for various angles of the profile and diameter of the thread for any combination of rated pressure of internal and external fluid and/or mechanical loads, but the principles that are reported in this document remain unchanged. Calculations and tests show that for the operation of suitable working thread profiles made parallel to the rear profile, however, it should be understood that other combinations of angles of inclination of the thread profiles is also within the scope of this invention. The calculation by the finite element method (FEA) showed that during operation of the proposed connection with compacted all his strength composition is yet at least 95% of the strength of the pipe, and pressure test proved that thread will keep the integrity in the event of impact pressure, withstand design when the wall thickness of the connection.

The pressure at the boundary between the inner and outer threads, caused by the radial tension of the thread during Assembly, as a rule, is the largest in the middle of the linked threads, which usually is the thickest connection of the walls of the rod and socket elements; therefore, when using this particular tension rod element coils, located in the middle, preferably do not have specified additional adjustment step to provide maximum axial stress in the middle part of the rod and socket elements when they are assembled, in consequence of which thread exactly mate and fix the truss element preventing relative axial movement together with a female element, while maintaining tension in a thin part of the truss element and preventing the loosening of a threaded fit. Thus, the turns of the truss element, located between its front surface and the middle part are connected with adjacent turns of the female element in the tension acting on negative working profile thread hook type, whereas in other on the managing threads are detected using paired coils, located in the middle under the greatest pressure on the border, which keeps a tight threaded connection, even if a truss element near its end becomes plastically deformed under conditions of regional compression, for example under the action of pressure of the external fluid medium, since the paired coils threading remain in close contact in case of further pressure of the internal fluid. Specified additional adjustment step can be performed for all coils, coils, located only between the front surface and the Central part of the core element, or only some of the coils closest to the end surface of the rod element, in case are assumed to be small workloads. Ideally, but not necessarily, the pitch adjustment of the thread preferably is a maximum at the end surface of the rod element and decreases towards his neck, so that at the time of Assembly, all paired coils, essentially, have equal spacing, while the coils of the core element between its front surface and the middle part are tensioned. For some cases of operation it is desirable that the coils of the truss element, located between the middle part and neck were a little constrained with toronyi work profiles to ensure sealing when the counter-pressure of the external fluid medium and/or corrosion. However, you can use other methods of adjusting the thread pitch without deviating from the essence of the present invention. After Assembly of the pressure fluid and the operating load can cause additional compression and/or stretching of the United thread, but the original ratio steps in the assembled state remains constant, because the rod and socket elements are expanded and compressed together and to the same extent. Therefore such compounds can be used in columns expandable pipes, because, when the inner and outer threads together expand or contract diametrically tension remains constant, and therefore the set difference of the axial step constant.

The radial width of the pipe wall, required to run a cylindrical thread, is less than the radial width of the pipe wall, required to run a conical thread of the same depth, so application of the present invention, for example, in thin-walled tubes may maintaining the sealing contact of the mated threads with a radial screw tightness or without him, which is sufficient to maintain a tight threaded fit, and also to hold the threads in the desired assembled position, provides a seal when the counter mechanical effort.

In practical use the ke this invention can be applied to threads of different shapes, having a positive or negative angle thread profile, but preferably the rear profile with a small positive angle, and business profiles with a small negative angle, however, the invention can also be applied in the case of threads not hook type, for example all threads 8 threads per inch according to API specification 5B, to ensure prevention of damage to the first, second and third types. For the implementation of this invention can be applied to various forms of threads of a hook type and thread in the form of a wedge, but if you need higher performance, preferably the use of open threads in the form of a wedge, made in accordance with U.S. patent No. 6578880 and No. 6682101. Now I understand how to create and maintain intimate contact between mating pipe threads with a radial threaded preload or without it and therefore, to obtain reliable threaded pipe connections, designed for any industrial or household maintenance, improve safety, reduce costs and better protect the environment in case of leakage of hazardous fluid and a sudden and complete failure of the mechanical connector, which often occur when using conventional threaded pipe connections.

Another feature of this and the finding, which can be used in combination with other described features to enhance the efficiency of the connection without using the double box joints or disembarking pipe ends, is to create a compressed nesting element, the critical area of the cervix which is the selection of up to 100% of the cross-sectional area of the pipe body, and an associated threaded connection takes place essentially from the outer diameter of the truss element to the inner surface of the crimping. According to the applicant, and on the available information, threaded pipe connections, such as pipe connections with trapezoidal thread API for a long time used the rise of the thread on the neck of the truss element, but the rise of the thread inside the crimped socket element was not reported. The proposed compressed socket element contains the upper conical portion which tapers inward in a direction from the end surface of the specified element down to the bottom of the conical part, is made along the length of the cone having a smaller slope and passing inwards towards the pipe body. Alternatively compressed socket element may contain an intermediate part located axially between the upper and lower conical parts having in this case a cylindrical shape and is and is performed on a more gentle taper, than the upper and lower parts. And in that and in other case to accommodate the paired rod element, such as element 11, is shown in figure 3, the coils of the nesting element is made in the upper part with the rise within the inner diameter of the crimping next part, whether lower or intermediate portion. Thus, in the absence of the need of the landing tube, providing a thicker wall socket element in comparison with the wall thickness of the pipe, a critical cross-sectional area wall socket element reaching the choice up to the value of the cross-sectional area of the pipe and providing compounds which can be as strong as the pipe body. Preferably the internal diameter of the crimped socket element at sbeg his thread is made large enough to provide sufficient radial width around the inner diameter of the pipe to position the end surface 14 of the truss element, the width of which is sufficient to support the turns of the truss element and the resistance forces applied during installation. In the case of applications that require pipe connection having a strength less than 100% of the strength of the pipe, the proposed connection can be made with the durability factor of 75% to 100% of the strength of the pipe body, EPA is the what's on the inside of the pipe with a smooth end strength values of the nesting element can be below 65%.

An additional feature of the present invention ensures the proper place and screwing the external and internal threads with a minimum expenditure of time and effort without damaging the threads, which is achieved by limiting the pressure angle that occurs between paired rear profiles of connected threads, to values which are less than 80°, as shown in Fig, but preferably the pressure angle is not more than 60°, the minimum pressure angle equal to any used angle of the rear profile. The pressure angle is an acute angle between the pipe axis and the line of action of the forces drawn through the point of mutual contact of the threads perpendicular to the line of contact between the turns of the external and internal screw threads in the regulations of the institution. The line of action of forces determines the current position and direction of force of resistance is transferred between the paired rear side surfaces and usually occur under the weight of exciting pipe.

Embodiments of the INVENTIONS

The preferred embodiment of the present invention is shown in figure 3, which shows the nesting element 1 having an internal thread 2 with a constant step 3, the end surface 4, the middle part 5, the neck 6, a positive rear side surface 7 of the thread, negative working the side surface 8 of the thread, cylindrical top 9 and the cavity 10 of the profile of the specified thread. The female element is assembled with the core element 11, which is made on the tube 28 and having an external thread 12, is made with a variable axial Sha is ω 13, the end surface 14, the channel 21, the middle portion 15, a neck 16, a positive rear side surface 17 of the thread, negative working side surface 18 of the thread, cylindrical top 19 and the cavity 20 of the profile of the specified thread. The step of threading the end surface is made shorter than the step related internal thread, and increases with each round in the direction from the end surface of the female element to his neck, so when you increase threaded preload during Assembly the length of the truss element is increased, and the length of the nesting element is reduced in accordance with Poisson's ratio up until in winchendon state, all paired lengths of the steps will not be essentially equal.

If there is a need to increase or better maintaining pressure on the border of threads about the core element, then the Assembly of the two elements to truss element can be applied axial tension in the area between its end and the middle part by the additional step reduction of the outer thread of the specified length. The thick connection of the walls of the rod and socket elements are usually located in the middle of the United threads, and the thick walls, in turn, create the greatest pressure on the border between the mating threads, so the angle of sadnes the thread profile is preferably small enough in the case of threads, located in the middle part, to strong fastening rod element and prevent its axial movement relative to the female element by ensuring a tight connection that can withstand the pressure of the fluid and prevent loosening of the thread. Adjust the length of the step between the inner and outer threads required to create such a load at a negative angle of inclination of the working profile, which is sufficient to maintain a tight connection turns of the truss element and associated coils of the breeding element without the aid of radial threaded preload can be calculated for various combinations of angles of the profile and diameter of the thread, but the principles that are reported in this document remain unchanged. The value of the initial load under axial tension in the truss member between its front surface and the middle part ensures the preservation of the close contact of paired coils in the elastic or plastic stretching or compression under the action of pressure of the external fluid medium. This invention allows to reduce circumferential compression in the beam element about its end surface in comparison with compression observed without the use of the invention for maintaining a tight connection that can withstand fluctuations in the high pressure the Oia and/or high temperature internal or external fluid within the allowable values, which occur simultaneously or sequentially. When you select the corresponding positive angle of inclination of the rear thread profile, you must consider at least the operating load, pipe size and wall thickness, pipe material and the tightness of the thread. To apply this invention in practice requires the use of relatively large negative angles worker thread profile to preserve the connection threads with any combination of allowable internal pressure and the external fluid and mechanical loads. Calculations and tests show that satisfactory are working profiles having a negative angle of 7° and is made parallel to the rear side surfaces having a positive angle of 7°, however, it should be understood that other combinations of angles of the thread profile is also within the scope of this invention.

In a preferred embodiment, the compressed socket element shown in figure 4, contains the pipe 44, the upper part 32 of the crimping at the first element 27 having an end face 38, the inner conical surface 36 and the outer conical surface 37, and the lower part 43 of the crimp having an inner conical surface 34. Obitaemyy end 38 machined with providing education end on which ernesti 39 female element, and the outer diameter of the specified element machined to obtain a diameter of 40, the size of which is large enough to perform it tapered coils 29 of the internal thread and provides sufficient operational strength of the end wall of the nesting element. The coils of the socket element extending from its end surface 39 to rise 45, going from the inner surface 34 within portion 43 after butt diameter 41, so that the critical area 26 formed between the specified sbeg 45 and the outer surface 48 of the part 43 may have the same size as the area 30 of the cross-section of the pipe body. Now it is clear that the turns of the internal thread can be machined in the area of the crimp to ensure that critical areas of the rod and socket elements having to select the same size as the cross-sectional area of the pipe required to perform panopreter connection with objitem nesting element. The ability of the lower part 43 to contain the pressure of the fluid may be a bit smaller in comparison with the same capacity of the pipe body, because after crimping in the outer direction relative to the initial size of pipe specified part has a lower "ratio of wall thickness to outside diameter compared with the pipe (however specific the strength of the part 43 is increased when it is hardening in the process of crimping, when this part becomes more uniform in thickness and, in addition, is short enough to rely on the adjacent overlying and underlying less strenuous pipe walls), and also because when computing the allowable pressure of the fluid in the pipe according to API assumes that the pipe wall is only 7/8 of the nominal pipe wall. Thus, if the inner diameter of the crimping exceeds the internal diameter of the pipe not more than 14%, then there is no need to reduce the allowable load values on the nesting element relative to the tube. Diameter 41 is made large enough to ensure that the radial width around the inner diameter 31 of the pipe, sufficient to accommodate the end surface 14 of the truss element.

Figure 5 shows an alternative configuration of the crimping at the first element, in which the intermediate part 33 of the crimp connected with the upper part 32 at the location of the inner butt diameter 46 and the bottom 43 with the provision of sbeg internal thread 29 made in the element 27, to the point 42 on the inner surface 35 of the intermediate part, with the critical area 26 in this place and is cylindrical or has a flatter cone compared to parts 32, 43. Using the part 33 and the upper and lower the Yaya parts may have the same taper, as an internal thread, while the axial length of the intermediate portion is sufficient to allow threading again in case of damage of the element with the specified thread. Although described thread suitable for creating a tight connection that will withstand high pressure gas to the proposed compounds can be added lip seal on the pipe end with an external thread, made in accordance with U.S. patent No. 2766829 the author of this invention and is often called sealed with a metal contact, if required by the technical specifications of the user.

On Fig depicts the form of thread, made in accordance with this invention which is a modification of the standard thread and designed to prevent the possibility of formation of the critical pressure angle, shown in Fig.7. On Fig shows the rear side surface 70 of the outer thread at its entry into primary contact with the rear side surface 71 of the internal thread at the point 22 of mutual contact when the rod element in the female element, and in accordance with the invention, a portion 84 of the top of the General profile of the outer thread and the part 83 of the top of the General profile of the internal thread removed with the formation respectively of the peaks 90 and 91 to provide constraints in the La 92 pressure, formed between the pipe axis and the vector 24 forces, to the value not more than 60°, which is preferred, although this value may reach up to 80° for lightweight threads or decrease the value of the angle of inclination of the rear side surface of the thread. The surface 74, 75 are depicted as curved surfaces, but may have another shape, for example conical, or to be made in the combinations, for example in the form of arcuate surfaces extending from the rear side surface of the thread, touch the conical surfaces, which are adjacent with vertices 90, 91. The value of the obtuse angle 94 formed between the top 90 of the outer profile of the thread and the common tangent line 23, and an obtuse angle 95 formed between the top of the 91 profile of the internal thread and the specified tangent 23, are sufficient for effective responses to mechanical damage at the connection surfaces. The value of the obtuse angle 96 formed between the cavity 98 of the outer profile of the thread and the line 85, held tangent to the radius 86 of the cavity through the place of its connection with the specified cavity 98 is sufficient to provide for the reduction of stress concentration at the troughs of the outer profile of the thread to acceptable values in similar configurations, the hollow profile of the internal thread. In the absence of you is t meet the minimum clearances between peaks and troughs, necessary, for example, for maintaining a tight connection that can withstand very high pressure, depression can be made tangentially to the radius at the point 99 with the provision of the gap 97 between the top of the 91 profile of the internal thread and the next cavity 89 of the outer profile of the thread. Now it is clear how to limit the angle of pressure to ensure the prevention of excessive shear stresses arising between the threads when the pivotal element in the female element, as well as providing quick and easy insertion without damage and reduce stress concentration in the cavity.
