Cam and Groove Couplings, also known as Camlock Fittings or Camlock Couplings, are used in many different industries and applications. They are also well-known as Quick Hose Couplings as they provide a quick connection and disconnection for pumps, tanks and other equipment where hoses are changed frequently.
Camlock couplings can be manufactured in several types of materials including aluminum, brass, and stainless steel. When selecting the type of Camlock coupling, it is important to keep in mind the chemical compatibility of the process fluid as well as the process temperature requirements. Camlocks are not suitable for compressed air or gas or high pressure applications.
Cam Lock Hose Connectors are very useful when connecting or disconnecting hose, pipes or tubing. They are very easy to operate. The connection consists of two parts – a male adapter and a female coupler. The adapter is inserted into the coupler and then the arms are pressed down simultaneously producing a uniform gasket compression. When the two are “coupled” they will form a fixed joint connecting the hose or pipe together. They are quick and easy to use and no tools are required.
