INSULATED ELECTRICAL CONDUCTOR FOR PIPES Filed March' 8, 1940 Patented Nov. 10, 1942 UNITED STATES FATENT OFFICE INSULATED ELECTRICAL CONDUCTOR FOR PIPES 4 Claims.

This invention relates to insulated electrical conductors for pipes, and it has particular rerl erence to an apparatus whereby an electrical cir cuit may be completed between a drilling bit and the derrick floor and suitably insulated from the metallic parts of the drill stem, in a system such as described in my U. 55. Letters Patent No. 2,196,- 314, April 9, 1940, for Method of measuring the inherent terrestrial magnetism of the earths crust.

The principal object of the invention is to provide an electrical coupling through tool joints on a drill stern, by means of which electrical contacts may be during the normal operation of making up or breaking the tool joints when going in or coming out of the bore hole with the drill stem.

Another object is to provide an electrical coupling so arranged that a positive electrical connection wil be made between corresponding conductors when the pipe sections are made up to full shoulder.

Yet another object is to provide means whereby electrical contacts may be made and maintained between non-rotating conductors at the surface of the earth and corresponding conductors so positioned within the drill stem that they will rotate with the rotation of the drill stem assembly.

A still further object is to provide effective insulating means for the electrical contacts adjacent the tool joints, which means are resilient and hig ly eiiective in excluding liquids and other foreign material from the electrical contacts.

Referring to the drawing:

Figure 1 is a fragmentary View in vertical cros section of the means for making electrical contact from the wires through the box and pin of a tool joint,

Figure 2 is a view taken on th line 2--2 on Figure 1,

Figure 3 is a fragmentary view in elevation of the companion assembly to Figure l and,

Figure 4 is a view taken on the line 4-4 on Figure 3.

In continuing with a more detailed description of the drawing, it will be understood that by means of the structure herein described and illustrated, sections of drill stem may be made up or taken apart without additional effort, and the electrical circuits are substantially and effectively insulated and sealed throughout the drill stem from the effects of the metallic parts as well as the circulating medium. Moreover, the circuits herein described are insulated and are completed without the aid of the earth as a ground. The tool joint pin section and the tool joint box section assemblies are illustrated in Figures 1 to 4 and by means of the assemblies illustrated and to be hereinafter described, the various electrical circuits which include wires M and it are insulate-d, sealed and completed.

illustrated in Figure 1 an annular ring 5!, formed shown, serves to house the conducting wires of the circuits. These wires are electrically connected to metallic screws 52. The ring 5| is locked in a predetermined position relative to the tool joint pin section 4?.

An annular ring 53 is positioned within the box section of the tool joint, and is locked against rotary motion thereto in a predetermined position, but is free to move longitudinally thereto within fixed limits. Metallic screw 5d serve to make electrical contact with their respective wires of the circuits. The screws 52 and 5t serve to effect contact with conducting segments 55 and 56, reg ectively. These segments are embedded within the rings 5! and 53. The purpose of these segments is to provide ample contact in a predetermined position when the tool joint is made up to full shoulder.

The annular ring 53 is mounted above an annular ring 51, which ring is comprised of a resilient and insulating material. This ring further serves as a sealing means. Thus it is obvious that desired contacts may be made by the normal operations of screwin up the tool joint to full shoulder and the resiliency of the ring 5'! is effective in urging longitudinally the ring 53 which ring contacts under pressure the ring 5-! when the tool joint is screwed up to full shoulder.

It will be noted that a pin 0 is positioned as shown in Figure 3 to prevent relative rotation between the member 48 and the member 4811. Interposed between these members is a packing ring at.

Within the annular insulated rings 5] and 53 resilient sockets 5m and 53a are provided as shown. The purpose of these resilient sockets is to insure positive contacts at all times between the respective wire conductors when the tool joint is made up to full shoulder.

It will be understood that non-conducting material may be used throughout the entire construction with the exception of the conducting elements, if so desired.

Manifestly, the construction as shown and described is capable of some modification and such modification as may be construed within the scope and meaning of the appended claims is also considered to be within the spirit and intent of the invention.
