  • Patent number: 10190713
    Abstract: A quick coupling element with discharge member and coupling member comprising such an element are disclosed. The coupling element comprises a tubular body defining an inner channel for the passage of a pressurized fluid and a longitudinal axis, and a relief member of the inner channel, movable between a first position, closing off a relief passage connecting the inner channel to the outside of the body, and a second forward position where it does not close off this relief passage. The relief member is a ring that is that is movable between two positions around a central member. The relief ring defines, at least in part, the relief passage. In the first position, the relief ring seals the central member over a first sealing circumference, and against the peripheral part over a second sealing circumference. The coupling element further comprises an elastic return member for returning the relief ring toward its first position.
