The AGR line of camlock fittings delivers a quality coupling solution at an affordable price. The couplers are built with fibreglass reinforced polypropylene and are manufactured to the Approved US Federal Standards (A-A59326/MIL-C-27487) making them compatible with all other cam couplings also made to spec. Manufacturers are ISO 9001 certified.
AGR Glass Reinforced Polypropylene Camlock Fittings have the following Features
- EPDM Seals included with female couplers and caps
- Stainless Steel Handles are standard on all Stainless Steel and Polypropylene couplings.
- Finger Rings are zinc plated mild steel
- 304 Stainless Steel Pins are standard on AGR Poly Cam lock Couplings.
- 304 Stainless Steel Pull Rings are standard on Polypropylene Cam lock Couplings.
Cam and groove couplings have traditionally been manufactured to the US Military specification MIL-C-27487. This specification covered the dimensions and machining tolerances, the materials, the closing torque, part numbers, pressure ratings, finish, inspection procedures and packing requirements of the product. Compliance to this specification ensured inter-changeability of parts from different manufacturers.
In recent years, many generic products have been produced which only loosely comply with the specification and where alternative materials, reduced wall thickness and less inspection are provided. This process helps to reduce the cost but it will also adversely affect the life of the product as well as its resistance to some media. In some cases, it can also endanger the operator and/or the environment.
The specification A-A-59326 has replaced MIL-C-27487, a cancellation notice being issued in 1998. The German DIN 2828 standard has been introduced in Europe and there is also a draft CEN standard for cam and groove couplings in existence. Products produced to DIN 2828 are interchangeable with those made to the original MIL-C-27487 but have differences in the hose tail design, thread, part number and other details.
