Camlock Fittings

Camlock Fittings are also known as Cam and Groove Fittings or Camlock Couplings. Included material types are aluminum, stainless steel, brass and polypropylene Cam Lock Hose Fittings. Used in many different industries and applications, Cam Lock Hose Connectors which include the term Cam Lock Quick Connect, are very useful when connecting or disconnecting pipe, tubing or hose. In addition to the standard Aluminum Cam Lock Coupling, we offer special types of reducing Cam Lock Pipe Fittings and Spool Adapters as well as KC nipples and stainless steel ball valves. When selecting the proper Cam and Groove Couplings, it is important to be mindful of the chemical compatibility of the process fluid and process temperature. Our Camlock Hose connectors are made according to the Mill Spec which ensure the proper mating of the male adapter and Cam Coupling.

What is a Camlock Coupling?

It is the best priced of all the quick disconnect coupling options available. The connection consists of two parts that are used to connect pipes, tubes and hose.

How Cam and Groove Fittings work

The connection consists of a male adaptor and a female coupler, that when coupled forms a fixed Joint connecting pipe or hose together. They are quick and easy to use and require no tools to operate.

  • The male adapter fits into the female coupler (With arms).
  • Once inside, the coupler handles can be closed simultaneously.

The quick disconnect couplings will remain joined together until both the handles are pulled upwards releasing the connection. Safety pins are provided to keep handles locked in place, they are not needed for most applications.

There is a recessed gasket already in place in the female coupler, which forms an air tight seal when connected with the male face.
