An "Aluminum Cam-Lock Female x Hose Barb (C Type)" is a specialized fitting used for quickly and securely connecting hoses and pipes in various industrial and agricultural applications. This type of fitting is a female cam-lock coupler with a hose barb connection in the shape of the letter "C." The "C Type" fitting is designed to accommodate hoses and pipes with corresponding hose barbs. Here are the key features and uses of this fitting:

Key Features:

  1. Cam-Lock Design: The cam-lock system is a quick-connect mechanism that allows for fast and secure connections without the need for additional tools. It consists of two parts: the male adapter and the female coupler, which are pressed together and then rotated to lock in place.

  2. Aluminum Construction: The fitting is typically made of aluminum, known for its lightweight yet durable properties. Aluminum is resistant to corrosion, making it suitable for various environments.

  3. Female x Hose Barb: The "female" designation means that this fitting has the socket end of the cam-lock connection. The "hose barb" end is designed to accommodate a hose, and the "C Type" fitting shape is a common design for hose barb cam-lock couplings.

  4. Leak Prevention: When properly connected, cam-lock fittings provide a secure and leak-free seal, which is crucial in applications where fluid containment is essential.


Aluminum Cam-Lock Female x Hose Barb (C Type) fittings are commonly used in a variety of industries and applications, including:

  1. Agriculture: They are used in agricultural applications for connecting hoses to transfer water, fertilizers, and other fluids.

  2. Industrial Processes: In industrial settings, these fittings are used to connect hoses and pipes for the transfer of chemicals, petroleum products, and other liquids.

  3. Construction: Construction sites use these fittings to quickly connect hoses for tasks such as dewatering, concrete pumping, and dust suppression.

  4. Firefighting: Fire departments use cam-lock fittings for fast and efficient hose connections when responding to fires and emergencies.

  5. Oil and Gas: The oil and gas industry employs cam-lock fittings for the rapid assembly and disassembly of hoses and pipes in drilling and fluid transfer operations.

  6. Marine and Shipyard: They are used in marine applications for transferring water, fuel, and other fluids.

  7. Beverage and Food Industry: Cam-lock fittings are employed in the food and beverage industry for transferring liquids during processing and packaging.

Proper sizing and compatibility are crucial when selecting cam-lock fittings to ensure a secure and leak-free connection. The "C Type" cam-lock fitting with a hose barb end is particularly useful for applications where hoses need to be connected quickly and securely, especially in situations where frequent disassembly and reassembly are required.
