Series 642 The Camlock/HDPE Female Transition
The Poly-Cam Camlock/HDPE transition is a multi-level mechanical transition fitting. The polyethylene or pipe-quality copolymer material is hydraulically compressed into a male thread transition which is screwed into the camlock fitting.
Relaxation of the pipe creates a seal to prevent leakage. Under pressure, the internal pressure within the pipe increases the sealing surface area on the barb. Under zero internal pressure, the compression and tensional strain created by the compression of the multi-level barbs are greater than the stress created by relaxation and/or thermal expansion and contraction. As the internal pressure increases, the connection between the pipe material and transition fitting increases.
- Sizes range from 2” to 12”.
- Camlocks available in stainless steel or aluminum
