Title
(EN) Pipe coupler with split ring chuck
Abstract
(EN)

A pipe coupler is designed such that a sealing ring (5), an annular chuck (6) and a release ring (4) are inserted into a mounting recess (2) of a coupler main body (1). Annular reaction surfaces (601, 602) are provided at the tip side of the annular chuck (6), and an action surface (301) for contrating the diameter is provided at the internal periphery of the mounting recess (2). Claws (603) are formed at the tip of the annular chuck (6), and a slit (604) is provided in the annular chuck (6) for permitting enlargement and contraction of the chuck's diameter. When a flexible tube (7) is inserted into the mounting recess (2), the diameter of the annular chuck (6) is enlarged. In this condition, when a compressed fluid is supplied, the claws (603) bite the flexible tube (7). As the release ring (4) is pressed into the mounting recess (2), the engagement of the claws (603 ) with the flexible tube (7) is released.
