A cam and groove coupling, also called a "camlock" fitting, is a form of hose coupling popular because it is a simple and reliable means of connecting and disconnecting quickly and without tools.
Also called "suction hose couplings," these are threaded couplings used for suction or discharge of water or other fluids. Standard threading is NPSM (National Pipe Straight Mechanical). 1-1/2" and 2-1/2" are available in NST thread (American National Fire Hose Straight Thread). NST does not interchange. Pin lugs are on all sizes of the female end. Sizes 2-1/2" through 6" also have pin lugs on the male end. Fittings seal on a washer that sits in the female end. Replacement washers are available.
Combination hose nipples are used in a variety of fluid applications. They are available in un-plated steel, plated steel, polypropylene, and stainless steel. End (male) threads are NPT (will mate with foot valves, strainers, cam- and-groove part A, D etc.) and are the same size as shanks. Jump sizes and reducers are also available.
Universal Air Couplings
Also called "Chicago," "CP," or "Crow's Foot" couplings. Used to connect air lines from compressors or other air sources to all types of pneumatic tools and equipment. All 2-lug head connections are of one size for easy interchange. Hose shank or threaded end is coupling size. Male and female threads are NPT. Malleable iron plated. (European style universals are available by special order.) Universal crowfoot couplings are recommended to be used in the transfer of air and/or water.
An all-purpose coupling, the female ground joint consists of a MALE STEM, WING NUT and FEMALE SPUD. The female spud has NPT threads to accept the NPT threads of a rigid connection or male NPT nipple. Widely used for air, water or steam, the ground joint is secured with an interlocking clamp or ferrule. By replacing the female spud of a ground joint coupling with a double or male spud, hose-to-hose ground joint connections or hose-to-rigid connections are simplified. Double spuds for hose-to-hose connections are threaded NPS MALE X NPS MALE. (GJ wing nut is also NPS). For hose-to-rigid connection, the male spud is threaded NPS MALE X NPT MALE.
There are three active sandblast system couplings: NOZZLE HOLDERS that accept the male threaded end of a sandblast nozzle, the THREADED POT END that is connected to the combination air and abrasive mix from the sandblast pot, and HOSE ENDS that are used to make hose-to-hose connections or hose-to-blast pot connections. All three are available in aluminum or brass. Hose ends are also available in iron.
Fire Hose Fittings & Adapters
A wide selection of brass fire hose fittings and adapters, not just for fire service, but water discharge and transfer applications.
Brass Push-On Fittings are specially manufactured for use with push-on hoses in low pressure applications. No clamp or ferrule is required if properly inserted. The barb will secure itself to the tube of the hose. Females also available in a swivel.
Garden Hose Fittings
Brass fittings with standard garden hose thread (GHT) for general purpose use. The female end swivels for easy connection. Many adapters are available for making the connection to the pipe thread.
Lever Lock Couplings
For use with water pumps and irrigation. Locking lever fittings are galvanized quick couplings, each with a double-pin locking lever for smooth closing. Not recommended for use with toxic chemicals. O-Ring is included in all female parts.
Quick Disconnect Couplers
Operation refers to the action required to connect and disconnect a coupler. Operation is a function of sockets only and does not vary for plugs.
Pressure Washer Fittings
Straight-thru couplers, adapters, wands, nozzles, and more.
For use in applications where cleanliness is of the utmost importance such as liquid food, winery & brewery, and critical chemical transfer.
Banding & Buckles
For the most demanding applications, offering durability and diverse fastening capabilities.
A variety of hose & pipe clamps.
A variety of air & water nozzles.
Brass ball valves and other fluid control devices.
All types of suction strainers and industrial foot valves.
