Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9857882A1] A fitting clamping device for pressure vessels, in which a fitting mounted on a mouthpiece (3) on a pressure vessel (2) such as a beer barrel is clampled, comprising a clamping torque generating device (25). Wherein swing bases (58, 59) are fixedly mounted on a base (32) which can be vertically moved toward and away from the pressure vessel (2) by a lift driving source (31) supported by a lift frame (23) so as to be capable of swinging back and forth and right and left, and a rotation drive source (33) is loaded on the swing base (58), while a clamp output shaft (54) of the rotation drive source (33) is extended downward to detachably couple thereto a clamping head (30) so that a skirt portion (73) having a tapered surface (74) brings thereinto the mouthpiece (3) to permit a wrench portion (72) thereof to engage with a ratchet of the fitting mounted on the mouthpiece (3). Accordingly, even when the axis of the clamping head is not aligned with the axis of the mouthpiece on a beer barrel, the clamping head accommodates inclination therebetween to thereby enable clamping of the fitting.
