Aseptic Coupling Devices

View page
US Patent:
8491016, Jul 23, 2013
Filed:
Mar 15, 2010
Appl. No.:
12/724125
Inventors:
Randall Scott Williams - Minneapolis MN, US
Patrick Thomas Gerst - Oakdale MN, US
Jeremy Henry Nichols - Maple Grove MN, US
Assignee:
Colder Products Company - St. Paul MN
International Classification:
F16L 17/00
US Classification:
285352, 285377
Abstract:
Formation of a sterile connection includes inserting a first aseptic coupling device into a second aseptic coupling device, removing a first membrane from the first aseptic coupling device and a second membrane from the second aseptic coupling device, and rotating a locking clip on the first aseptic coupling device to compress a first seal member of the first aseptic coupling device with a second seal member of the second aseptic coupling device to form a sterile fluid passageway.

US Patent:
20090188575, Jul 30, 2009
Filed:
Jan 28, 2009
Appl. No.:
12/361308
Inventors:
Randall Scott Williams - Minneapolis MN, US
Patrick Thomas Gerst - Oakdale MN, US
Grant Armin Wilhelm - Plymouth MN, US
James Mark Hanson - Woodbury MN, US
Assignee:
COLDER PRODUCTS COMPANY - St. Paul MN
International Classification:
F16L 37/08
B32B 37/00
US Classification:
137798, 156242
Abstract:
An example coupling device includes a main body with a fluid passage therethrough, a first end with an opening. A receptacle member is positioned within the main body about the fluid passage, the receptacle member being sized to receive a portion of a mating coupling device that is inserted through the opening in the first end. A deformable seal member is positioned within the receptacle member, the seal member including a primary sealing surface and a secondary sealing surface to provide fluid tight seals with the mating coupling device, the primary sealing surface being positioned to engage an end of the mating coupling device, and the secondary sealing surface being positioned in a perpendicular orientation with respect to the primary sealing surface to engage a side surface of the mating coupling device.

Breakaway Coupling Assembly

View page
US Patent:
20120161051, Jun 28, 2012
Filed:
Dec 22, 2011
Appl. No.:
13/334651
Inventors:
Randall Scott Williams - Minneapolis MN, US
Patrick Thomas Gerst - Oakdale MN, US
International Classification:
F16L 29/00
B23P 11/00
F16L 37/084
US Classification:
251149, 285305, 29507
Abstract:
A breakaway coupling assembly includes a male coupling and a female coupling. The male coupling includes ribs that flex portions of the female coupling as an insert of the male coupling is positioned within the female coupling. Once the insert of male coupling is positioned into the female coupling a predefined distance, the ribs snap into a circumferential retention groove of the female coupling to secure the male coupling to the female coupling and form a fluid seal. The male coupling is decoupled from the female coupling by pinching the female coupling to release the ribs from the retention groove.
