The LinkTech 60PS Series is a lineup of premium plastic Quick Disconnects. These High Quality QDs are made from Food Grade Udel® Polysulfone, a high-strength plastic that is temperature tolerant past boiling (280° Max!), and can handle pressure ranging from a vacuum to 125 psi. All of the 60PS Series will interconnect, and these units will also work seamlessly (and leaklessly!) with CPC Quick Disconnects of the same internal 3/8” flow path. O-rings are a Food Grade EPDM Rubber, and internal valve springs are constructed from 316 Stainless steel.

This is a Male Plug, which can connect to any H501 Series Female Sockets. It has 1/2″ Male NPT threading for use with any product equipped with 1/2″ Female NPT.

While not quite as bulletproof as our Stainless Steel Quick Disconnects, this lineup does offer a few advantages. These can be set up with Shutoffs, which will prevent flow when disconnected, and can be incredibly useful on Pump or Glycol systems. The pricing of these products is more economical, yet the plastic is still food grade at and above boiling temperatures. All in all, these are a premium lineup of quick disconnects with great features and lots of options.

Features:

  • LinkTech brand 60PS Series
  • Connections:
    • Male Plug Quick Disconnect
    • 1/2″ MPT
  • Food Grade Materials:
  • Body: High-Strength Udel® Polysulfone
    • Spring: 316 Stainless Steel
    • O-Ring: EPDM
  • Operating Pressure: Vacuum to 125 PSI
  • Temperature Tolerance: -40 to 280° F (-40 to138° C)

25 x 1/4″ Cole Palmer Male Luer Lock Disconnects + Making a CO2 Utility Line

Cole-Parmer Male luer with Lock Ring x 1/4" Hose Barb, Nylon, Pack of 25Cole-Parmer Male luer with Lock Ring x 1/4″ Hose Barb, Nylon, Pack of 25

More Info

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

  • Product Type: luer fitting
  • Material: nylon
  • Qty/pk: 25
  • Number of items: 25
  • Package quantity: package

From HBF: Make sure the components you use are compatible and rated for your intended application.  Contact manufacturer with questions about suitability or a specific application.  Always read and follow manufacturer directions.

 

Luer Locks disconnects are generally used in medical and industrial applications.  Compatible male and female Luer Locks twist together to make a airtight, pressure capable connection.

I use Luer Lock style connectors for a CO2 utility line for my draft system.  That allows me to quickly and easily switch between a number of CO2 utility attachments that I don’t use on a day to day basis.  The reason I chose Luer Locks is that they are generally inexpensive.  You could also use these as a primary disconnect for your CO2 system.

These Luer Locks are made by Cole Parmer.  They feature 1/4″ barbs to connect to compatible tubing.  I asked the manufacturer for the PSI rating of these disconnects.  I was told… “Thank you for your email. the fittings AO-45502-20 and AO-45505-19 are male and female fittings and compatible. The Psi rating for these fittings together is 100PSI”.

Stainless Steel Cam Lock QDs at Proflow Dynamics – 15%+10% Off w/Stacking Deals

homebrew cam lock

Proflow Dynamics has an extensive selection of homebrew gear, fittings and disconnects anchored by their lineup of Stainless Steel Camlock QDs.

More About ProFlow Dynamics

 

Camlock QDs at PFD!  I’ve used ProFlow Dynamics Quick Disconnects on my kettles, mash tun, pumps and tubing for a longtime.  They have worked great for me.  I put male connectors kettles, mash tuns and pumps and use female connectors for tubing.  Standardizing on this (or the opposite) means you can use tubing as jumpers and always have the availability to connect your gear.

These are made from Stainless Steel and are available in lots of configurations.  Those are classified by Type and Size.  Type may mean something in “commercial cam lock fitting circles”, but I was initially confused by this.  Types are akin to model numbers.  For example, Type A is Female NPT to Male Cam and Groove.

Hands on Review: ProFlow Dynamics Stainless Steel Camlock Quick Disconnects + Limited Time Deal

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.
