Sphere Release Fingers / Mechanisms

The Pipeline Engineering Sphere Release Finger enables a multi-loaded sphere launcher to sequentially launch spheres without opening the launcher. This saves the time taken to de-pressurise and re-pressurise the system after each launch. When fitted to receivers, they allow the controlled and safe unloading of multiple spheres one at a time.

Sphere Release Mechanisms can be either manually or power operated and are generally suitable for sphere sizes 4" to 54". The release mechanism design will either incorporate a release pin / finger or a flap arrangement.

For a multiple sphere launching capacity the launching vessel can be designed to contain up to 10 individual spheres with the launch of each controlled by a pair of release pins or flaps.

Sphere Release Mechanisms are designed to order and often form part of an integrated sphere launcher or receiver contract.
