Straight, for metrically dimensioned pipes
General Information ELGEES
Universal quick-release and coupling system with standardized components according to continually optimized construction principle, to be mounted without tools; proven, corrosion-proof stainless steel design for pressure and suction piping made of the same material or plastics in inch and metrical dimensions, for conveyance of all kinds of liquid and gaseous media. High workmanship and problem-oriented choice of materials allow conveyance of corrosive liquids and gases as well as ultrapure media in wide temperature range without limitations. Alternatively available as piping connectors or standard screw-in fittings.
The THOMAFLUID®-plug-in connection system ELGEES 3800 is based on a vacuum- and pressure-resistant plug-in mechanism, which is uniform for all system constituents and varies only in diameter according to the required pipe connection. At any time, the plug-in mechanism can be released without using tools.
Construction, function, and handling:
The internally conical manufactured connecting part (1) of the respective system component contains a multiply slotted clamping collar (2) with an outwardly directed bead (3) sized in the outside diameter of the pipes (4) to be connected; the resilient, inwardly directed reeds (5) of the clamping collar have coronally grouped anchor hooks (6) at the lower end, a protecting disc (7) secures the O-ring (8) positioned in front of it and flush-mounted with the inner end of the connecting piece.
For connecting, the pipe to be connected is inserted to stop into the connecting part via the clamping collar, the involved FPM-ring tightening the system. The mechanical support of the pipe is ensured by the clamping collar, the reeds of which are forced together in the connecting part so far that the pipe is hold in place forcipated by the anchor hooks due to the conical construction when the system is exposed to tensile loading.
Disconnecting is achieved immediately by pressing back the clamping collar into the connecting piece by hand on the outwardly directed bead. Thereby, the clamping collar reeds with the anchor hooks spring back into their initial position releasing the pipe which can be drawn out of the connection without resistance.
For coupling, the connected pipes principally need no preparation other than a perpendicular and burr-free cut-off piece. To get this, use of the THOMACHROM®-plastic capillary cutter, item 61640, is recommended.
