Cam and groove couplings are the most cost effective quick disconnect solution available. This coupled with their easy-to-use design, makes them the most widely used in the world and they are one of our core products. Based in Oxfordshire (UK), Action Sealtite has been manufacturing and distributing camlock couplings worldwide since the company began over 35 years ago. It therefore comes as no surprise, that the world famous brands Snaplock and Saflok are both Action Sealtite brands.

Spare parts and maintenance

It is advised to ensure that you have a maintenance programme in place when working with any product that includes moving parts as these can become worn through general use.

Making sure you have spare parts can sometimes mean the difference between downing tools or not. Stopping a line for maintenance issues can be frustrating but most of all can incur costs while production is halted. Make sure you have the right components on the shelf to avoid costly down time.

We supply Handles/Pins/Rings and Gaskets as individual spares parts.

How do camlocks fittings work?

The products are comprised of two parts, a male adaptor and a female coupler, which when connected creates a fixed joint for hose or pipelines. No tools are required, making this an easy, quick and clean solution.

Operation is a simple two-step process:

1.)   The camlock coupling is connected by simply opening the coupler arms and inserting the adaptor

2.)   The coupler arms are then closed at the same time under normal hand pressure to complete the connection

Applications include:

For pipe, hose, tubing and tanks conveying liquids and powders including cooling water, fuels, chemicals, cosmetics, foodstuffs, offshore, pumps, adhesives, dyes, pharmaceuticals, pellets and many more.
