Hands on Review: ProFlow Dynamics Stainless Steel Camlock Quick Disconnects + Save 30%!

proflowdynamics homebrew camlock review

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Proflow Dynamics Camlock Fittings

If I were to count all the “things” I have the most of in my homebrew collection, it would be a close race between tubing and fittings. Like the freeway system of the brewing world, we all have to get the wort/beer from one vessel to the next as we move through the brewing process. When dealing with hot liquids, that typically means silicone tubing. And when connecting tubing to your vessel or pump, there are 3 most common ways to do this: 1) Barbed fitting, 2) Quick Disconnect fitting, and 3) Camlock fitting.

Camlock QDs at ProFlow Dynamics


Proflow Dynamics has been around since 2007. They specialize in camlock fittings, but also make a variety of other fittings and ball valves. They service a mix of different industries- including the brewing industry, of course. Barbed fittings are the simplest, but are typically designed to be a very tight fit (require a lot of effort to mate), or a looser fit (require a hose clamp). Either of these situations does not lend itself well to a joint you need to connect/disconnect frequently. Quick disconnects have a slick one-handed operation, which is their main appeal. The downside is their more complicated design makes them more expensive. And more complicated designs usually mean more ways to potentially fail.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Our favorite brewer gloves are made from a chemical resistant PVC that protects your hands from harsh cleaning chemicals. With a length of 21.5 in, these elbow length gloves allow you to reach into liquids while protecting your hands and forearms. We also like these gloves because they offer more heat resistance than the standard green brewing gloves.

Great for cleaning your brewery and handling brewing equipment in a sanitary way!



I use protective gloves when dealing with harsh chemicals  The photo above is from my post on rebuilding kegs.  Here I’m using Bar Keepers Friend – Jump To: Section on Bar Keeper’s Friend – to clean a keg.  I used protective gloves several times during this process.

  • I use a similar type of glove when I’m making yeast starters in an Erlenmeyer Flask.  It’s really handy (pun intended) to swirl around the flask or to quickly remove to keep the flask from boiling over.  These are also handy on brew day for handling hot (but not wet) ball valves and such.
