Stainless Steel Camlocks

What Are Stainless Steel Camlocks

Camlocks, also called cam and groove couplings, are a type of hose coupling used to securely connect piping or hoses. Here at Stattin Stainless, we stock Grade 316 Stainless Steel Camlocks and camlock fittings to be used with liquids and a variety of sizes to accommodate hose or piping diameters. With the ability to ship our camlocks Australia wide, we are sure to have what you are looking for.

Our cam locks are made from Grade 316 Stainless Steel which has excellent corrosion resistance and is able to resist pitting and rust. Due to its rust-resistant properties,  Grade 316 Stainless Steel is a popular choice of steel in challenging environments such as water side buildings and installations. These properties also make it perfect for food processing environments - as the camlocks and camlock fittings can be easily cleaned and will not be as affected by reactions with organic and inorganic chemicals.


NITRILE (NBR) Camlock Seals

Standard in our Grade 316 Stainless Steel Cam and Groove couplings, nitrile is a synthetic rubber offering improved chemical resistance and temperature capabilities to neoprene. The material offers good resistance to oils and solvents, aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbons, petroleum oils and gasoline, animal fats and lacquer solvents. 

Temperature range -20 to 100 Deg Celsius

VITON (FKM) Camlock Seals

I addition to our standard Nitrile seals in our camlock range Stattin Stainless stocks Viton (FKM) Camlock seals you can purchase separately. Viton is a Elastor with high yield strength and can be used in high temperature and concentrated chemical applications. The material offers good resistance to chemicals including oils, acids, silicone fluids and gasses as well as most hydrocarbons.

Temperature range -20 to 200 Deg Celsius

Industries and Uses for Stainless Steel Camlocks

Our Stainless Steel Camlock Fittings are the most robust and durable of the camlock fittings. The hygienic properties of the Grade 316 stainless steel cam and groove couplings make them the first choice in food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing. They are also ideal for use in corrosive circumstances such as high pH environments, plumbing where high water velocity occurs and in situations where drain cleaner is regularly used. . Manufactured to close tolerances, our high quality couplers provide a durable, low maintenance solution and often work out the least expensive long-term solution.

EN 14420-7 Standard

The European standard EN 14420-7 was approved by CEN in September 2004, and was applied to cam and groove couplings manufactured to American military specification MIL-C-27487 / A-A-59326A. This American standard does not apply to the hose connection side, but only to the coupling side. Cam and groove couplings produced to EN 14420-7 are interchangeable with those produced to the original MIL-C-27487 standard, but differ in terms of hose tail design, thread and part number. A flat thread seal has been added to the female threaded parts, and a smooth hose shank complying with EN 14420-2 / DIN 2817 has been added for assembly with RK safety clamps complying with EN 14420-3 / DIN 2817.

Note: European standard EN 14420-7 replaces DIN 2828 but does not replace MIL-C-27487 and Federal Mil A-A-59326A.
