Camlock is a quick disconnect coupling, abbreviated as QDC, of a cam-type used for quick connection of hoses and hoses with a diameter of 13 mm (½ ") to 200 mm (8"), as well as for connection to various equipment or tanks.
It is the most common method of quick disconnect couplings providing a hermetically sealed, reliable and vibration-resistant coupling at pressures up to 20 atmospheres and temperatures from -40 ° C to + 260 ° C for almost any working environment.
The fixing of the counterpart inside the receiving part takes place with the help of two handles located on the sides of the receiving part. At the moment when the two parts are joining, the handles are located perpendicular to the body frame. When lowering the handles down, their protrusions fall into the groove, and the connection is securely fixed by the eccentric principle. At the same time, the connection is sealed by aligning the head of the counterpart with the gasket located inside the counterpart.
