The Advantages of Aluminium Camlock Fittings

Aluminium camlock fittings are a durable and economical option for PVC lay-flat hoses and industrial hoses used for agricultural irrigation, PVC suction hoses, chemical/petroleum deliveries, and water transfer needs. The working temperature is a range from -150 degrees Fahrenheit to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. The working pressure won’t go past 250 psi when at ambient temperatures.

These couplings come in many sizes ranging from 8 inches to 1/2-inch sizes. Most of the parts are interchangeable, which means you can use them on a variety of hoses and stylings. They’re also designed for quick connect/disconnect purposes, which means you don’t need tools to disconnect them or connect them.


You can save time when compared to using flanged and threaded fittings because you don’t have to find any tools and you don’t have to ensure that the threads match between the adaptor and coupler. They quickly go together so that you can use the cam arms and close them at the same time.

They also have a safety seal for powders, pellets, and fluids, which means you don’t have to worry about leakage. You can connect them and ultimately forget about them until you need to disconnect them again.

Aluminium is an excellent option because it is very lightweight and won’t break or get damaged easily, making it highly durable. Therefore, you don’t need any support system to hold the hoses to take the weight off the coupling.


Again, you can choose from a variety of sizes. In most cases, the coupling body is made of aluminium while the handles and pull rings are made of brass. Gaskets are usually made of EPDM, PTFE, silicone, or Viton, though there are other options as well. You may also want to consider dust plugs or dust caps to ensure that no dirt or debris gets inside.
