Title (EN) PUSH-TWIST CONNECTOR
(FR) RACCORD À EMBOÎTEMENT ET ROTATION
Abstract:
(EN) A push-in plumbing connector includes a ring seal, a backing member, a threaded seal compression member, and a locking ring insert which moves between a locked and unlocked position for the insertion and locking of a pipe within the connector. The connector cooperates with a threaded socket of a plumbing fitting having a tapered side wall for engaging the seal which surrounds a pipe inserted into the connector.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un raccord de tuyauterie à emboîtement qui comprend un joint annulaire, un élément de support, un élément de compression de joint fileté, et un insert de bague de verrouillage qui se déplace entre une position verrouillée et une position déverrouillée pour l'insertion et le verrouillage d'un tuyau à l'intérieur du raccord. Le raccord coopère avec une douille filetée d'un raccord de tuyauterie ayant une paroi latérale effilée pour venir en prise avec le joint qui entoure un tuyau introduit dans le raccord.
