A Camlock fitting, or cam and groove, is used to connect two hoses and or pipes to transfer material to the other. They’re easy to use, requiring no tools to connect and disconnect the two halves of the couplings, and they replace traditional time-consuming methods of connecting hose or pipe. Camlock fittings are also very cost-effective. Camlocks are in use in many industries, such as manufacturing, agriculture, oil, gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, and military applications. They’re an extremely versatile product, and because there are no threads when connecting the coupling halves, there are no issues with them becoming damaged or dirty. Camlock couplings are very suitable for heavy-duty environments. The system is especially well suited to a situation where frequent changes of hoses are required, such as for petroleum or industrial filtration applications.
