Snaplock Camlock Fittings Technical Details
Camlock Fittings Specification
Snaplock Camlock Couplings are suitable for carrying liquids, gases, powders and granules. These are probably the simplest and most versatile quick cam and groove coupling available. Interchangeable with other camlock fittings productsoriginally made to MIL-C-27487.
Camlock Fittings Working Pressures Guidelines only PSI (bar)
These working pressures are given for ambient temperatures using Elastomeric seals. Higher temperatures and / orPTFE seals will reduce the pressure rating of the cam and groove coupling. In the case of Polypropylene the maximum working temperature is 70°C and at this temperature the working pressures below must be reduced by 40%.
Aluminium Cam and Groove Couplings are gravity die cast and may be anodised on request, particularly for military contracts.
Brass Cam and Groove Couplings are forged for 1/2” to 3” and sand cast for all other sizes. Check for other special materials, such as LG1 Gunmetal availability at time of ordering.
316 Stainless Steel Cam and Groove Couplings are investment cast. (316 is equivalent to the DIN reference 1.4404).
Polypropylene Cam and Groove Couplings are manufactured from acid resistant 20% glass reinforced Polypropylene.
Cam and Groove Coupling Threads
Standard Snaplock cam and groove couplings when fitted to hose nipples are designed to seal on the thread. Snaplock Male threads are therefore BSP taper to BS21 and the Female thread is BSPP parallel to BS 2779. In cases where the nipple has a Male parallel thread and is designed to seal on a gasket, most sizes of Snaplock camlock couplings with Female threads in Aluminium or Stainless Steel, can be supplied with an underc
