Polypropylene Camlock Hose Couplings: A Reliable, Cost-Effective Solution

Built for Efficiency: Secure Connections for Industrial Applications

United Flexible offers a comprehensive selection of polypropylene camlock hose couplings, designed for ease of use and to ensure secure fluid transfer. These lightweight, yet durable fittings are ideal for various industrial applications requiring frequent hose connections and disconnections.

Key Features of Polypropylene Camlock Couplings:

  • Lightweight Construction: Polypropylene is a cost-effective plastic known for its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. Compared to metal alternatives, polypropylene camlocks are significantly lighter, reducing strain on hoses and simplifying handling.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Polypropylene is naturally resistant to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, alkalis, and salts. This makes them perfect for transferring various fluids & chemicals without the risk of corrosion affecting the coupling's integrity.
  • Easy Operation: The signature camlock design allows for quick and effortless connections.
    Simply engage the stainless steel levers to lock the cams in place, and you're ready for operation. Disconnecting is just as easy – a simple release of the levers facilitates smooth hose separation.
  • Cost-Effective: Polypropylene is a more economical material compared to metal options.
    This translates to significant cost savings, particularly when dealing with large-scale projects requiring numerous couplings.
  • Variety of Styles: To ensure compatibility with your existing hose infrastructure, we offer a comprehensive range of polypropylene camlock styles, from Type A to Type F, in sizes from 13mm (1/2”) up to 102mm (4”).

Applications for Polypropylene Camlock Couplings:

  • Water Transfer: Ideal for transferring water in construction, agriculture, and pool/spa maintenance applications.
  • Chemical Transfer: The corrosion resistance makes them suitable for low-pressure chemical transfer in industrial settings.
  • Food and Beverage Processing: Polypropylene complies with food-grade standards, allowing safe use in food and beverage production facilities.
  • Dust Collection Systems: Effective for connecting hoses in dust collection systems for woodworking and other industrial processes.

Applications to Avoid with Polypropylene Camlock Fittings:

  • High pressure applications: Over pressure can deform the body of a polypropylene camlock.
  • Applications requiring high mechanical strength: Subjecting a polypropylene camlock to might mechanical force or impacts can cause the fitting to break.
  • Gases and Compressed Air: Polypropylene camlocks should not be used for applications involving compressed air or other pressurised gases.
  • In the above applications, consider Aluminium Camlocks or Stainless Steel Camlocks instead of Polypropylene, or in the case of gases consider another type of fitting.
