  • Patent number: 7828338
    Abstract: A coupling assembly includes pipe sockets of fluid-holding parts to be joined. The pipe sockets are provided with a peripheral locking rib, behind which a groove is formed and which has a conical front flank and a radial rear flank. The front flanks of the locking ribs lie opposite each other. The rear flank of one locking rib bounds a groove. The coupling assembly also contains a steel spring band, which is curved more than 240° and whose axial ends have inwardly directed flanges which engage behind the locking ribs and are interrupted on the side of the spring band opposite the ends of the spring band. The front flanks of the locking ribs enclose an angle <50° with the center axis, the radius of the smallest circumference of the front flanks is smaller than the inner radius of the flanges of the spring band.

  • Patent number: 6749232
    Abstract: A pipe clamp has a tightenable clamp body and at least one spike strip arranged radially inwardly within the clamp body and slanted toward the axial center of the clamp body. The spike strip and a radially inner side of the clamp body delimit an acute angle therebetween. The spike strip has a first longitudinal edge provided with teeth projecting radially inwardly and slanted axially relative to the clamp body. The at least one spike strip has a second longitudinal edge supported in a radial direction and in an axial direction on the clamp body. An area between the at least one spike strip and the radially inner side of the clamp body defined by the acute angle is free of parts counteracting a bending of the at least one spike strip toward the radially inner side of the clamp body.

  • Patent number: 6702335
    Abstract: A coupling device has a coupling receptacle and a matching coupling insert received in the coupling receptacle for connecting two components conveying a fluid. The coupling receptacle has two lateral, diametrically opposed slots and a U-shaped, elastic securing bracket seated on the coupling receptacle with two legs projecting into the lateral slots. The coupling insert has an outer peripheral securing rib and the legs of the securing bracket snap into place behind the securing ring in the coupling position of the coupling device. A securing bushing is arranged inside the coupling receptacle and faces a sealing ring with one end while the other end rests radially outwardly on the securing rib and projects past the lateral slots. The securing bushing has two transverse slots aligned with the two lateral slots, and the two legs of the securing bracket engage the two transverse slots of the securing bushing.
