Abstract : A separable coupling, for a plurality of pressure lines is described, having a flat interface plate with a plurality of apertures located in an annular configuration and with tubular members being secured to the plate in alignment with each aperture. A plurality of tubular studs are supported in a guide ring in the same configuration as the apertures in the interface plate. The guide ring is slidably supported on a mounting plate with the studs passing through holes in the mounting plate. O-rings are positioned in the ends of the studs which are spring loaded to provide a seal around each of the apertures between each of the studs and the interface plate.
