NewAge Industries' cam operated couplings feature high impact strength, and resistance to acids and solvents

NewAge Industries has unveiled a line of cam operated couplings in four materials: glass-fiber-reinforced nylon, industrial-grade glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene, PVDF and food-grade polypropylene.

All four materials offer similar performance properties, such as high impact strength, and resistance to acids and solvents. The cam operated couplings also weigh less than their metal counterparts. Heavy metal couplings can affect the overall weight of a hose assembly, hindering its maneuverability.

Each coupling material has particular benefits, such as:

  • Nylon, which is yellow in color, resists corrosion and handles working pressures up to 175 psi.
  • Industrial-grade polypropylene (black) offers a higher degree of acid resistance than nylon and, like nylon, is electrically non-conductive.
  • PVDF, or polyvinylidene fluoride, (translucent) is made from FDA-approved ingredients, handles temperatures as high as 300°F (149°C) and will self extinguish. PVDF couplings withstand sterilization by autoclave, ethylene oxide or gamma radiation. They are also UV resistant and offer good acid resistance.
  • Food-grade polypropylene (white) resists animal, vegetable and mineral oils; salts; alkalis; and alcohols. It, too, may be sterilized.
NewAge’s cam operated couplings are made to MIL-C-27487 dimensions and are fully interchangeable with other materials made to the same standard. Couplings feature EPDM gaskets, handles of 304L stainless steel and pins of 302 stainless steel. Types include A, B, C, D, E, F, DP and DC, and they’re available in sizes ranging from 1/4 inch through four inches.
