Dixon Group Europe Ltd, a leading provider of hose and coupling solutions, has launched a new armless Cam & Groove product line – EZLink.
The EZLink system is an innovative design concept that features an armless positive locking system. The EZLink’s innovative engineering is in stark contrast to conventional cam & groove products. EZLink is easier to connect, and the new design also requires less maintenance since there are no cam lever arms that tend to break and need replacing.
Users can push to connect the EZLink coupler to any standard cam & groove adapter to achieve an ultra-reliable connection. Also, the product’s low profile allows for easy connection and disconnection in tight applications and operating conditions.
Commenting on the introduction of the new product line, Brian Zottarelli, Vice President and General Manager of Dixon’s Cam & Groove Division said: “EZLink represents a major leap forward in cam & groove technology, and it comes as a direct result of Dixon listening to operators and the challenges they face in the field. We responded by developing a new design from the ground up. We’re excited to offer products that will simplify and improve the transfer and unloading of fuels and other liquids.”
At present, Dixon’s EZLink product line includes types B, C, D and dust caps in 1½” to 4” in aluminium and from 1½” to 3” in stainless steel. These configurations come with a black Buna nitrile rubber seal as standard with FKM and Fluorosilicone available on request to offer a low temperature as well as a chemically resistant seal option for various applications.
Other operational and safety features of the EZLink product line include coupler push tabs that can be locked with safety pins or a zip tie.
