Brass camlock couplings, made of 100% virgin materials, have excellent corrosive resistance against water, hydraulic oil, coolants, gasoline and petroleum products. Thanks to its non-sparking feature, brass camlocks can be used in some special places such as in marine fueling applications. Brass cam lock fittings come into size from 1/2" to 8". The fittings are interchangeable except 1/2" and 8", which have no international specifications. Generally speaking, the usual working temperature for brass couplings is rated from -150°F to +450°F. Always make sure the gasket material is compatible with the media.
Both brass and stainless steel camlock fittings have good corrosive resistance, high tensile strength and durability. However, brass coupling is less expensive than stainless steel, and softer and easier to thread.
Application: Brass camlocks are normally used in low pressure suction or discharge hoses of pump, tank, IBC and other places where quick connect/disconnect is necessary like paints & inks industry. Before installation, always make sure the material is compatible with the media.
Note: All types of brass camlocks are NOT for use with compressed air or gases.
