Camlock coupling is the most cost-effective quick disconnect solution in many industries. Its user-friendly design, flexibility and innovative technology of the camlock coupling makes it suitable for industrial applications that require the conjunction with pipe, hose, tubing, granules, solids and tanks carrying liquid such as petroleum, chemicals, water, gas and etc. A camlock coupling works by inserting an adapter into the extended arms of the coupler. Extra protection is given by the safety pin in the coupler holes, just in case the cam arms disconnected.
A camlock couplings also referred to as cam and groove fittings come in materials like stainless steel 316, aluminium, and polypropylene. Stainless steel camlock couplers are usually used in food and sanitary industries, agriculture, chemicals, petroleum, construction and material handling. Polypropylene camlock couplers are mainly used for chemicals, coolants, gasolines, hydrocarbons and solvents. Aluminium camlock couplers are mainly used for water, petroleum and chemical transfer. The most common uses for camlock couplings in industrial settings tend to be of larger diameters.
