Camlock Manufacturer In China
We stock cam and groove couplings in various configurations and materials including nylon camlock hose connector and stainless steel, aluminum, brass and polypropylene.
We supply the best priced quality camlock fittings and camlock couplings which are also called camlock hose fittings, a hose cam lock, cam fittings, a cam coupling and cam lock hose connectors.
Aluminum Camlock Couplings
Stainless Steel Camlock Couplings
Brass Camlock Couplings
Polypropylene Camlock Couplings
Type DP Aluminum cam & groove male adapter is used to plug into the female coupler such as Type B, C and D couplers. Camlock fittings work well in dry bulk and low pressure liquid applications.
Camlock coupling Adapter F – male adapter by male NPT, is normally used with Part B, C, D & Dust Cap couplers of the same size to firm tight connection between low pressure suction/discharge hoses and pumps & IBCs.
Camlock Manufacturer Answer
How Do I Choose The Right Camlock Fitting?
When specifying a fitting, there are seven fields of information required. The acronym for this is STAMPED, which stands for:S – Size,T – Temperature,A – Application,M – Material (or media being used),P – Pressure rating required,E – End fittings & connections (thread type),D – Delivery (any extras such as material certs)
Are There Any Limitations with Using Camlocks in Assemblies?
Hose shanks with larger serrations are not designed to be assembled with a ferrule or sleeve. If swaged, this can result in permanent damage to the hose where larger shank serrations will cut into the inner wall of the hose. This results in leakage and/or permanent hose failure.
Note: Cam & Groove couplings must never be used for steam or compressed air applications.
Are Camlocks Interchangable?
Between manufacturers, cam & groove couplings are interchangeable with the exception of ½” (12.5mm), 5” and 8”. The A-A-59326A Mil Specification does not apply to 5” and 8” cam & groove couplings due to the presence of two versions of cam & groove couplings in today’s market.
To What Standard Are Camlocks Manufactured?
The standard for cam & groove couplings is based on the US military specification Mil-C-27487 now superseded by A-A-59326D.
The original specification was replaced by the new standard, but still guaranteed the interchangeability of couplings designed to the same specification.The Mil-C-27487 specified the casting methods, materials, dimensions, tolerances, pressure ratings, and inspection procedures.
European Standard,The European standard EN 14420-7 was approved by CEN in September 2004 and was applied to cam & groove couplings manufactured to the American military standard as outlined above. This American standard does not apply to the hose connection side, but only to the coupling side.
Camlock fittings produced to EN 14420-7 are interchangeable with those produced to the original MIL-C-27487 standard, but differ in terms of hose tail design, thread, and part number. A flat thread seal has been added to the female threaded parts and a smooth hose shank complying with EN 14420-7/DIN 2828 has been added for assembly with safety clamps complying with EN 14420-3/DIN 2817.
