Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1054227A2] A tank assembly (22, 24) includes a tank (34, 36) having a wall (62) with an opening (64) therethrough and adapted to be fitted to the header (30, 32) of a heat exchanger (20), and a hose connector (42) having a first end (46) and a stop (60, 76, 78) disposed a predetermined distance from the first end (46). The stop (60, 76, 78) abuts the tank wall (62) with the first end (46) of the hose connector (42) disposed in the opening (64) in the tank wall (62) to prevent the hose connector (42) from being disposed further into the opening (64). The first end (46) of the hose connector (42) is deformed against the wall (62) of the tank (34, 36) oppositely of the stop (60, 76, 78) to prevent withdrawal of the hose connector (42) from the tank (34, 36). A method of assembling the tank assembly (22, 24) is also provided. <IMAGE>
