  • Publication number: 20200271252
    Abstract: A pipe coupling for connecting a pipe and including a pipe, a pipe union, and a clamping element. The pipe exhibits at least one connecting section and a terminal abutting face. The connecting section is formed in an end region of the pipe, wherein the connecting section exhibits at least one sealing surface inclined relative to a longitudinal axis of the pipe. The pipe union including a receiving section for insertion of at least a part of the connecting section, wherein a sealing connection between the pipe and the pipe union is created, in that the connecting section is clamped between the pipe union and the clamping element. The abutting face has a sealing protrusion and the sealing protrusion is formed as a prominence in the abutting face.

  • Patent number: 10655763
    Abstract: A pipe connection for connecting metal thin-walled pipeline. The pipeline has a shaped connecting segment that increases from the end of the connecting segment in the form of a frustum forming a circumferential sealing surface and a shoulder defining a stop surface adjacent to the sealing surface. The pipe connection also includes a connection stub having a connection thread and a connection bore, which decreases in size and defines a circumferential connection surface for contacting the sealing surface. A union threaded part includes a clamping thread and a passage opening, which has, on the inner circumference, a circumferential clamping surface for contacting the stop surface. The cone angle of the connecting segment in the region of the sealing surface and the cone angle of the connection bore in the region of the connection surface are in the range of about 38° to 50°.

  • Publication number: 20200001341
    Abstract: A shaping tool for connecting to a shaping device for deforming a portion of a workpiece. The shaping tool includes a clamping device having multiple clamping segments and a compressing head having a depression on one end for forming a portion of the workpiece. The compression head and the clamping device being integrally connected to each other, circumferentially, as a wholly exchangeable single tool unit and being axially movable relative to each other. The compression head additionally, on an opposing side from the depression, an attachment feature for connecting the single tool unit to a shaping piston of a shaping device.

  • Patent number: 8745869
    Abstract: A screwed pipe connection for connecting a pipeline including a connection end having a formed wall region. The screwed pipe connection includes a connection part and a union joint part. Proceeding from the end face of the connection end of the pipeline, an outside cross-section of the pipeline increases and is larger than the nominal outside cross-section, then decreases again. Proceeding from the end face, a clear inside cross-section of the connection end is larger than the nominal inside cross-section and decreases to the nominal inside cross-section. The wall thickness on the end face is smaller than the nominal wall thickness, and wherein an inner material difference, resulting from the deviation of the inside cross-section from the nominal inside cross-section, and an outer material difference, resulting from the deviation of the outside cross-section from the nominal outside cross-section, deviate from one another by a maximum of 30 percent.

  • Patent number: 7665772
    Abstract: The invention provides for a metallic cutting ring for a screw connection for sealingly connecting a tube to an attachment part, which metallic cutting ring has a tube abutment section and a cutting section which adjoins the tube abutment section in the axial direction. The cutting section having a stop which points radially outward from the outer periphery of the cutting ring and has a stop face, which runs transversely with respect to the cutting ring longitudinal axil, for the attachment part. The stop for the attachment part has an annular peripheral stop edge which projects beyond the stop face.

  • Patent number: 6645191
    Abstract: A multi-chamber renal dialysis container having at least two compartments and containing concentrated glucose in a first compartment and a hydrochloric acid solution containing electrolytes in a second compartment. The compartments are separated from one another during storage and transportation by separable peel seals, and the solutions can only be mixed with one another by the opening of the peel seals. An outlet of the multi-chamber container is separated by a further peelable seal, whereby a substantially empty third chamber is formed.

  • Patent number: 6581906
    Abstract: The invention relates to a connector which has an inner displacement member. The flow is stopped by the connector, i.e. the connector is impervious, in a first position. In a second position of the displacement member, with a stop defining the position, flow apertures are released which release the flow into the flow carrying line.
