Abstract

A fluid conduit quick connector includes first and second releasably connectable bodies. A tapered bore in the first body receives one end of a first conduit. A tubular extension projecting from one end of the second body is coaxially received in the conduit when the first and second bodies are releasably joined together. The conduit is sealingly compressed between the tapered bore and one or more projections on the extension. A third body carries another conduit and is releasibly connected to the second body. The third body also includes mounting members to fixedly mount the third body to a support.

Independent Claims | See all claims (13)

  1. 1. A fluid connector for joining first and second conduits comprising:a first connector body having a through bore extending between opposed first and second ends, the bore receiving the first conduit through the second end of the first body;the bore tapering in diameter from a large diameter end at the first end of the first body to a smaller diameter in the first body;a second body having opposed first and second ends;an extension extending from the second end of the second body, at least one radially extending projection formed on the extension;a bore extending through the second body and the extension;means, carried on the first and second bodies, for releasably interconnecting the first and second bodies;the at least one projection and the tapering diameter bore in the first body forcibly deforming the first conduit therebetween to sealingly couple the first conduit to the second body;a third body having a bore extending between first and second ends, the bore receiving the second conduit at one end; andmeans, carried on the second and third bodies, for releasably interconnecting the second and third bodies.
  2. 9. A fluid connector for joining first and second conduits comprising:a first connector body having a through bore extending between opposed first and second ends the bore receiving the first conduit;the bore tapering in diameter from a large diameter end at the first end of the first body to a smaller diameter in the first body;a second body having opposed first and second ends;an extension extending from the second end of the second body, at least one radially extending projection formed on the extension;a bore extending through the second body and the extension;means, carried on the first and second bodies, for releasably interconnecting the first and second bodies;the at least one projection and the tapering diameter bore in the first body forcibly deforming the first conduit therebetween to sealingly couple the first conduit to the second body;a third body having a bore extending between first and second ends, the bore receiving the second conduit at one end; andmeans, carried on the second and third bodies, for releasably interconnecting the second and third bodies.
