The most popular cam-and-groove couplers in the industry are the Kamvalok couplers. They have a built-in valve and a spring-loaded poppet that automatically closes when disconnected. It will prevent dangerous and costly fluid loss from both regular and accidental disconnects even on the occasion that the valve is left in the open position. The simple connection and disconnection design and lever actuated internal poppet configuration makes this the first choice for any and all liquid transfer operations.
You can count on these couplers to provide you with a reliable and dependable solution to the risk of disastrous spillage during both connection and the disconnection processes. Because of its unique poppet action this type of coupling further eliminates spillage of any residual liquid contained within the line after disconnection.
