How Camlock Couplings and Fittings Useful for Industries

These days, you may have noticed that to make a container tightly packed, industries use cam lock coupling and fittings in order to do so. Such couplings are used in a wide range of processes such as in transportation of dry products or liquid. These are commonly available in standard size which is between 1 – 6 inches.

Cam lock coupling and fittings are made of different materials such as nylon, brass, polypropylene, aluminum, ductile iron, stainless steel, and other thermoplastic materials. Aluminum cam lock coupling and fittings also have alloys. Cam lock couplings are used for handling different things including rail car unloading, chemical, petroleum, water and agriculture, and dry bulk handling.

The couplings are beneficial because of their easy and quick connect design. Different types of cam lock couplings are available in the market such as:

Brass Couplings: You can find quality fittings of brass in the market. These can work under 3 bar working temperature which range from 30 to 60.

Stainless Steel Cam Lock Coupling: This fitting is made of cast iron, stainless steel, nylon and aluminum brass. Its various sizes are available which range from ½'' to 8".

Cam Lock Coupling Type B: A wide range of type B cam lock fittings are used in most of the chemical and petrochemical industries. Several other industries in which this coupling is used include power plants, fertilizers, steel plants and atomic energy. These are available in a size range from 1/2" to 6".
