SMART SOLUTION #176

Custom Hose Fitting Application

The Binkelman team recently worked with an industrial chemical company to address a corporate-wide safety issue with their hose fittings.

The company needed a camlock hose fitting with quick attach and release capabilities. These types of fittings are easy enough to come by, however, this company needed fittings that could stand up to rigorous daily use and maintain seal integrity when exposed to aggressive fluids.

Their team evaluated several commonly used camlock fittings from other suppliers that met the material handling requirements, but none offered ease of use for the operators who connect and disconnect these hoses dozens of times daily.

Binkelman introduced them to Continental Contitech’s Insta-Lock Cam and Groove Fittings.
