Camlock Fittings Are Time Savers:

Camlock & Groove Couplings are probably the world’s most commonly used quick connect couplings because of the great variety of  applications. This can be best illustrated by looking at a few uses within a typical petrochemical process plant.  Here's a few processes: 

  • Solids - Aluminum couplings can be used to join piping carrying solids, powders or pellets. The system can then be easily disconnected if blockages occur.
  • Tablet Presses - For hygienic applications, couplings can be electropolished and fitted with food quality seals. The seals can easily be removed for steam cleaning.
  • Process - couplings are particularly effective in the rapid changing of lines to mixing vessels in pilot plants, saving time compared with flanged or threaded fittings.
  • Storage - Cam & Groove couplings are a standard option on IBC containers to allow rapid filling and emptying even with aggressive chemicals. Stainless Steel or polypropylene couplings are resistant to most acids and corrosive solvents.
