Abstract: A kit for repairing and inflating inflatable articles has a compressor assembly; a canister assembly containing sealing fluid; and releasable connecting means defining an assembly direction and for connecting the compressor assembly to the canister assembly. The kit has a control device for controlling turn-on of the compressor assembly, and at least one movable electric terminal connected to the control device and loaded elastically into a predetermined position; and the canister assembly has a sensor, and at least one electric contact connected to the sensor and cooperating with the movable electric terminal to transmit a signal from the sensor to the control device when the canister assembly is connected to an inflatable article; the movable electric terminal being designed to exert force on the canister assembly to move the canister assembly in the assembly direction when the releasable connecting means are released.
Abstract: A canister for sealing fluid for repairing inflatable articles has a bottle defining an inner volume for the sealing fluid; a first inlet port and an outlet port connected fluidically by the inner volume; at least one non-return valve downstream from the inner volume and open to permit outflow of the sealing fluid from the outlet port; and a second inlet port connected to the outlet port, downstream from the at least one non-return valve.
Abstract: A kit for repairing and inflating inflatable articles comprises a compressor unit, a container unit containing a sealant fluid and a fluidic line to connect the compressor unit to the container unit. The kit also comprises a first non-return valve placed along the fluidic line, a duct connected to the fluidic line between the compressor unit and the first non-return valve and a second non-return valve to close the duct; the first and second non-return valves are normally closed and respectively open automatically when the container unit is connected to the fluidic line or when the duct is connected to the inflatable item.
Abstract: A unit, for repairing and inflating an inflatable article, defines a volume for a sealing fluid; an inlet for compressed air; and an outlet connected fluidically to the inlet via the volume to inject the sealing fluid into the inflatable article by means of the compressed air. More specifically, the inlet is connected by releasable fluidic connecting means to a fluidic outlet port of a pneumatic circuit of a vehicle having a compressed-air source and at least one pneumatic actuator connected to the compressed-air source.
Abstract: A kit for repairing and inflating inflatable articles has a compressor unit for producing compressed air; a container containing sealing fluid injectable into the inflatable article by means of a stream of compressed air from the compressor unit; a fluid line designed to connect the compressor unit to the inflatable article; and a sensor for determining a connection status to the inflatable article.
Abstract: A kit for repairing and inflating inflatable articles, and having a compressor assembly for generating compressed air; releasable connecting means fixed with respect to the compressor assembly and for connecting the compressor assembly mechanically and fluidically to a sealing liquid container assembly; a first pipe connecting the compressor assembly to the container assembly; a second pipe parallel to the first pipe with respect to the compressor assembly; and a valve interposed between the compressor assembly and the first and second pipe. The valve defines a cavity bounded by a conical surface; a rotary distribution member cooperating in fluidtight manner with the conical surface; an inlet connected to the compressor assembly; a first outlet connected to the first pipe; and a second outlet connected to the second pipe.
Abstract: A kit for inflating and repairing inflatable articles, in particular tires, the kit having a compressor assembly, a container of sealing liquid and connectors for connecting the container to the compressor assembly and to an inflatable article for repair or inflation; the compressor assembly being housed in an outer casing defining a seat for the container of sealing liquid. The container is housed removably in the seat and functionally connected to the compressor assembly so as to form a compact unit ready for use.
