  • Patent number: 7647954
    Abstract: A connector apparatus for controlling fluid dispensing/transmission that includes a control component for communication between couplers thereof. A first coupler has a transmitter, and is releasably connected with a mating reader coupler that has a transmitter and fluid control device to exchange information with the transmitter of the first coupler. The transmitters communicate and are operated by wireless means such as by RF devices. Upon confirming that the first coupler is properly coupled to the mating coupler and that the first coupler has a proper identification, the fluid control device controls fluid flow, using the transmitters of the first coupler and the mating reader coupler, under predetermined parameters, e.g., pressure, temperature, duration, and flow rate, as indicated in the first coupler.

  • Patent number: 7631660
    Abstract: An aseptic coupling device includes a first state in which fluid does not flow through the aseptic coupling device. In addition, the aseptic coupling device includes a second state in which fluid does flow through the aseptic coupling device. The aseptic coupling device can be moved from first, second, and third states to control the flow of fluid through the aseptic coupling device.

  • Patent number: 6962275
    Abstract: A coupling apparatus for fluid dispensing with a disposable connector on the fluid line or fluid dispensing system side. The coupling apparatus includes an insert body that is connectable with a disposable connector device. The insert body includes a recess area defined between a first inner sidewall and a second inner sidewall. The second inner sidewall extends coaxially with the first inner sidewall, and has an aperture defining an opening through a first and second end. The connector device includes a connector body connected with an adapter portion. The connector body includes a beveled end that is insertable through the aperture of the second inner sidewall. The adapter portion is disposed proximate and extends past the beveled end, where the beveled end is recessed within the adapter portion. An insertion space is defined between the beveled end and an outer wall defined by the adapter portion.

  • Publication number: 20040173769
    Abstract: A poppet valve disposed in a dispensing valve assembly includes a supporting member. The supporting member has a resilient flap. A sealing member slides over the resilient flap of the support member, so that the sealing member is not damaged or permanently deformed by the support member. Thus, the leakage is prevented when the fluid passageway is closed.
