Title
(EN) AN ATTACHMENT FOR A VACUUM PUMP
(FR) ACCESSOIRE POUR POMPE A VIDE
Abstract
(EN) An attachment (3) for a vacuum gun (2), for evacuating and containing a fluid from a reservoir of fluid, such as brake fluid from a brake system. The attachment (3) has a body (21, 25) with an inlet (22) for the fluid and an outlet (24) that may be sealingly attached to a front end of a gun (2). The attachment (3) also has a coupling (26), a container (27) which is releasably attachable to the coupling (26), a first passage (33, 34) extending between the inlet (22) and the container (27), a second passage (35, 36) extending between the container (27) and the outlet (24), and a tap (70) which may be moved to either close or open the said passages (33, 34, 35, 36). In use, the gun (2) generates a vacuum within the attachment (3) and when the tap (70) is in the open position, the fluid may be collected within the container (27). A float valve (83) within the second passage (35) ensures that the container (27) cannot overfill with fluid.
(FR) L'invention concerne un accessoire (3) pour pistolet à vide (2) permettant d'évacuer et de contenir un fluide de réservoir de fluide, tel qu'un fluide à freins d'un système de freinage. Cet accessoire (3) comprend un corps (21, 25) doté d'une entrée (22) de fluide, et une sortie (24) pouvant être fixée de manière étanche à l'extrémité avant d'un pistolet (2). L'accessoire (3) comprend également un dispositif de couplage (26), un récipient (27) fixé libérable audit dispositif de couplage (26), un premier passage (33, 34) s'étendant entre l'entrée (22) et le récipient (27), un second passage (35, 36) s'étendant entre le récipient (27) et la sortie (24), et un obturateur (70) pouvant ouvrir ou fermer lesdits passages (33, 34, 35, 36). Lorsqu'on l'utilise, le pistolet (2) produit un vide dans l'accessoire (3), et lorsque l'obturateur (70) est en position ouverte, le fluide peut être collecté dans le récipient (27). Un pointeau (83) placé dans le second passage (35) assure que le fluide ne déborde dudit récipient (27).
