Title (EN) PNEUMATIC CONNECTOR FOR SMALL-BORE MEDICAL TUBING
(FR) RACCORD PNEUMATIQUE POUR TUBULURE MÉDICALE DE PETIT DIAMÈTRE INTÉRIEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A connector apparatus for small-bore medical tubing includes a male connector (20) with a dome (22) which fits into a mating cavity (42) of a female connector (40) when the two connectors are coupled togheter. A fluid channel extends through the connectors, the dome, and into the cavity to form a continuous fluid passageway when the connectors are coupled togheter. The dome is compressed into the cavity to form a fluid-tight connection when the connectors are coupled togheter. Each connector has a coupling structure which mates with the other to compress the connectors togheter when fully engaged. The connectors are engaged by inserting the dome of one of the connectors into the cavity of the other connector, then rotating the connectors to fully couple them togheter.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil connecteur destiné à un tubage médical à âme réduite et comprend un raccord mâle (20) avec une protubérance (22) qui entre dans une cavité d’accouplement (42) d’un raccord femelle (40) lorsque les deux raccords sont accouplés. Une conduite de fluide s’étend à travers les raccords, la protubérance et jusque dans la cavité de manière à former une voie d’écoulement continu lorsque les deux raccords sont accouplés. La protubérance est insérée dans la cavité pour former une connexion étanche aux fluides lorsque les deux raccords sont accouplés. Chaque raccord possède une structure de couplage qui s’adapte à l’autre de manière à presser les raccords les uns contre les autres lorsqu’ils sont complètement mis en prise. On met en prise les raccords en insérant la protubérance de l’un des raccords dans la cavité de l’autre raccord puis en faisant tourner les raccords pour qu’ils s’accouplent complètement.
