How Cam Lock Couplings Is Beneficial for Industries


These days, most industries use cam lock couplings to tightly pack containers. It is also known as groove and cam couplings. Such couplings are widely used for transportation of dry or liquid products. Cam lock couplings can also be used in a fuel transfer pump to transfer fuel without any stoppage.

The standard size of cam lock couplings are ¾ inch to 6 inches. Different materials are used to manufacture it such as nylon, brass, polypropylene, aluminum, ductile iron, stainless steel and thermoplastic materials. You can use cam lock couplings for handling various things such water, petroleum, rail car unloading, chemical and dry bulk handling. Due to its easy connection design, it offers a number of benefits. Therefore, most industries purchase the cam lock couplings for easy and quick connection.

Here are some popular cam lock couplings: 

   Quick Release Coupler
