Abstract

A press-in coupling arrangement including a cast socket (16) that comprises a first frustro-conical internal surface (18) and a second frustro-conical internal surface (20). The first frustro-conical internal surface (18) has a draft angle 'A'. The draft angle 'A' may be 2 degrees or more, but preferably the draft angle 'A' will be in the range from 2 to 5 degrees. The draft angle 'B' may be 2 degrees or less. Generally, it is preferably that the internal surface having the lesser draft angle is disposed between the opening (24) of the socket (16) and the internal surface having the greater draft angle. A circumferential sloped surface (22) is formed at the opening (24) of the socket (16). The first and second internal surfaces (18, 20) each have a surface finish Ra value of about 3.2. Such a value is achievable without the need for post-cast machining due to the draft angles on the inner cast surfaces.

Description

Press-in Coupling Arrangement

The invention relates to a press-in coupling arrangement for systems involving pressurised media and is concerned particularly with a housing element formed with a cast socket and a male connector element insertable into the cast socket.

Background of the Invention

In known systems involving pressurised media, such as air brake systems on commercial vehicles, press-in coupling arrangements comprise a male connector part and a female socket. The female socket may be formed in a cast housing, for example in a valve or a distribution block. The male connector is axially insertable into the female socket and forms a fluid tight seal there-between. In order to achieve the fluid tight seal, the inner contact surfaces of the female socket are machined to provide a good surface finish. The housing elements of coupling arrangements of this type have long been made by a casting process using metals such as brass, zinc alloy or aluminium. Following the casting process, the inner contact surfaces have to be machined to provide the required surface finish value (Ra - surface finish). A typical surface finish value is about Ra = 3.2.

Disclosure of the Invention

The present invention provides an advantage over the known press-in coupling arrangements by providing a coupling arrangement comprising a male part and a cast housing formed with a female socket that has inner cast surfaces that do not require post-cast machining. It shall be appreciated that the term 'female socket' includes any suitable hole or port into which a press-in male connector may be inserted. We have discovered that a suitable inner cast surface finish, which may be used for forming a seal, is achievable if the inner cast surface is formed with a draft angle.

Description of the Specific Embodiments

Figures 1 , 2 and 3 show two elements that form a press-in coupling arrangement for systems involving pressurised media, such as air brake systems on commercial vehicles.

With reference to the Figures 1 and 3 there is shown a male connector element 2 of tubular form comprising a first annular rim 4 and a second annular rim 6 that each extend in a direction away from the distal end 8 of the male connector element and in a direction radially outwards from a longitudinal axis 10. The first annular rim 4 is in the form of a barb and is disposed between the distal end 8 of the male connector element 2 and the second annular rim 6. The second annular rim 6 is in the form of a deformable barb having a cross-sectional thickness that is significantly less than the cross-sectional thickness of the first annular rim 4. The male connector 2 also comprises a first annular seal 12 in the form of an O-ring and a second annular seal 14 in the form of an O-ring. The first annular seal 12 is axially situated between the distal end 8 and the first annual rim 4. The second annular seal 14 is axially situated between the first annular rim 4 and the second annular rim 6. Each of annular seals 12, 14 is held within respective circumferential grooves formed in the male connector element 2.

With reference to the Figure 2 there is shown a substantially cup-shaped cast socket 16 for the press-in coupling arrangement. The male connector 2 is axially insertable into the socket 16 in a direction 17. In the pressed-in position the male connector 2 and socket 16 form the press-in coupling arrangement. The pressurised media system may comprise a plurality of such coupling arrangements. The cast socket 16 may be formed in a cast valve or distribution block used within the system. The cast valve or distribution block may be a cast metal such as an aluminium or a zinc alloy.

The cast socket 16 comprises a first frustro-conical internal surface 18 and a second frustro-conical internal surface 20. The first frustro-conical internal surface 18 has a draft angle 'A'. The draft angle 'A' may be 2 degrees or more, but preferably the draft angle 'A' will be in the range from 2 to 5 degrees. The draft angle 'B' may be 2 degrees or less. Generally, it is preferably that the internal surface having the lesser draft angle is disposed between the opening 24 of the socket 16 and the internal surface having the greater draft angle. A circumferential sloped surface 22 is formed at the opening 24 of the socket 16. The first and second internal surfaces 18, 20 each have a surface finish Ra value of about 3.2. Such a value is achievable without the need for post-cast machining due to the draft angles on the inner cast surfaces. The cast socket 16 is formed with a central port 23 that provides fluid communication between the male connector element and the pressurised media.

In the pressed-in position, the first annual seal 12 and the first annular rim 4 are in contact with the first inclined internal surface 18: the main function of this arrangement is to provide a fluid seal function there-between. The second annular seal 14 and the second annular rim 6 are in frictional contact with the second inclined internal surface 20: the main function of the second annular rim 6 is to secure together the male connector 2 and the socket 16. The male connector 2 is axially insertable into the socket 16 with a mean press-in force value of 3200 N. Such a press-in force is sufficient to deform the second annular rim 6 such that in the pressed-in position the second annular rim6 is pressed towards the longitudinal axis of the male connector 2 by the second inclined cast internal surface 20 of the socket 16. When the male connector 2 is inserted in the socket 16, the first annular rim 4 will press firmly against the first inclined internal surface 18 of the socket 16 and the second annular ring 6 will be in firm frictional contact with the second inclined internal surface 20. The deformation of the second annular ring 6 as it is inserted into the socket 16, creates a holding force which is sufficient to hold the male connector 6 and the socket 16 together. Thus, there is no need for a holding clip or any other holding device to keep the two parts of the coupling together, i.e. the coupling is self-holding.

The first and second included internal cast surfaces 18, 20 of the present invention provide a suitable inner cast surface finish, which may be used for forming a seal. The surface finish is achievable because the inner cast surfaces are formed with a draft angle. The first and second internal surfaces 18, 20 each have a surface finish Ra value of about 3.2. Such a value is obtained without the need for post-cast machining.
