How to select camlock coupling

How to select camlock coupling

1.The type and temperature of fluid

Depending on the fluid, suitable body material, sealing material is different. For example, the quick connector is air. Recommended iron and steel, water is the election of brass or stainless steel.

2.The liquid pressure

The pressure of the fluid is also the key to selecting the camlock coupling. The camlock coupling for the oil pressure is 5.0 MPa (51 kgf / cm²) – 68.6 MPa (700 kgf / cm²), and the construction of the camlock coupling is different depending on the withstand voltage characteristic.

3.The structure of automatic switching valve

For the valve structure, there are two-way switch, one-way switch and two open. In addition to the two-way switch-type separation in the outside, there are fluid from the pipe outflow. So please note.

4.The use  environment of camlock coupling

The type, body material, and sealing material of the selected camlock coupling are considered in consideration of the environmental conditions such as the humidity condition of the environment, the condition of dust, and the environment in which corrosion is likely to occur.

5.The shape and size of the installation

Determine the type and material of the camlock coupling, and specify the assembly shape and size corresponding to the piping characteristics. Note that the dimensions are associated with fluid flow.
