Connection device for plastic pipes
The device enables two pipes to be connected in an extremely quick, simple manner that is almost instantaneous, without the need for any mechanical tools and ensuring a sealed connection. To do this, the device takes the form of a tubular body (1) that can be straight, L-shaped or having any other form, with a central perimeter partition (3) between two perimeter alignments of radial flanges (5) that enable the bayonet connection of respective coaxial couplings (6) to the ends of the body (1) and have slanting inner flanges (12) so that, when sections of pipe (2) are inserted into the ends of the body (1), the connection is sealed by gaskets (9) and mechanically secured as the flanges (12) on the metal couplings (6) are driven into the plastic wall of the pipe when it is liable to become disconnected from the body (1), thus locking it in place.
