Function STARK.basic - system released/clamped


  • The piston (2) is subjected to the release pressure (1) and moves upwards.
  • The springs (3) are pressed together.
  • The balls (4) move to the parking position.
  • The retractable nipple (5) is released.

Clamp mechanically

  • The pressure is relieved and drops to 0 bar.
  • The spring pre-tensioning force is initiated via the piston (2) which moves down.
  • The balls (4) are pressed inwards by the piston (2) and enclose the retractable nipple.
  • The retractable nipple is securely clamped by the spring pre-tensioning force
