The invention concerns a tubular stiffener (16) made from a polymer material and intended to be installed around a portion of flexible conduit (10) for transporting hydrocarbons for limiting the curvature of said portion of flexible conduit. Said flexible conduit (10) supplies heat energy to said tubular stiffener (16) when said flexible conduit is transporting hot hydrocarbons, said tubular stiffener (16) being suitable for dissipating the heat energy supplied by said flexible conduit (10). Said polymer material is filled with nanoparticles in order to be able to dissipate the heat energy.


The pipe comprises: - at least one tubular sheath (20) delimiting a passage (11) for the circulation of the abrasive material; - at least one tensile armour layer (34, 36) arranged externally with respect to the tubular sheath (20), the armour layer (34, 36) comprising a plurality of filiform armour elements (44). The pipe also comprises an internal protective layer (40) arranged inside the tubular sheath (20) in the circulation passage (11), the internal protective layer (40) comprising an elastomer matrix (50) and a longitudinal reinforcing assembly (52) embedded in the matrix (50).


The clamping device (18) comprises at least four clamping components (30A to 30C) and connecting elements (32) comprising, for each clamping component (30A to 30C) at least one elastic tightening member (76) connecting a supporting member (40) of the clamping component (30A to 30C) with a supporting member (40) of a first adjacent clamping component (30A to 30C) and at least one elastic tightening member (78) connecting the supporting member (40) with a supporting member (40) of a second adjacent clamping component (30A to 30C). Each elastic tightening member (76, 78) comprises an elongated part and two end stops, each end stop cooperating respectively with a supporting surface (40), each elastic tightening member (76, 78) being longer than the transverse extent of a central lumen defined by the clamping components (30A to 30C), and protruding beyond the supporting members (40) connected by the elastic tightening member (76, 78).

A burner apparatus includes a fluid-based flame stabilizer for discharging a stabilized flame therefrom, a burner tile, and fuel lances associated with the burner tile. Each of the fuel lances has a discharge nozzle. A Coanda feature having an internal Coanda surface directs a portion of the stabilized flame from the passage defined by the burner tile at the discharge end of the primary flow passage toward at least one first fuel lance of the plurality of fuel lances to cross light the at least one first fuel lance. In another embodiment, a method of combustion includes supplying a first gaseous fuel to fuel lances of a burner apparatus and igniting and sustaining combustion of a gaseous fuel by cross lighting at the discharge nozzles of the fuel lances by flow from the fluid-based flame stabilizer along a Coanda surface of a Coanda feature toward the discharge nozzles.
