Guides – Camlock Basics

Common Home Brewing Camlocks

We offer camlocks as an inexpensive alternative to quick disconnects and barbs. Camlocks provide a sterile connection and can quickly be disconnected without the need of any tools. Using a standard fitting across your brewing equipment is highly recommended and takes the guess work out come brew day. We offer 1/2inch camlocks, as that is the most common size used in most home brewing applications.

Cam Type: A| Used on pumps almost exclusively

Cam Type: B| Can be used on bulk heads, sometimes used with high temp tubing

Cam Type: C| Used primarily for connections on tubing

Cam Type: F| Used on bulk heads or threaded fittings

Example| Pump assembly with 3 piece ball valve
