Assembly Working Pressures
Assembly working pressures may vary slightly depending on the size, hose, fittings and clamps selected.
Dixon recommends gathering all STAMPED information to ensure the selected hose assembly is suitable
for the required service or application.
SAFETY ALERT
Dixon also recommends all Hose Assemblies be proof tested to prove the assembly’s integrity, and
tagged to clearly show the hose assembly’s working pressure.

Specifications
DESIGN INFORMATION
Applications
The Dixon Cam & Groove coupling is a reliable quick connect coupling for use on hose, pipe, tubing and tanks conveying a wide variety of liquids, dry bulk materials and vapours including cooling water, fuels, chemicals, cosmetics,
food products, adhesives, dyes, pharmaceuticals, pellets and much more.
How does it work?
The coupling is connected by simply opening the coupler arms and inserting the adaptor into the coupler. The two
cam arms are then closed under normal hand pressure to complete the joint.
The Dixon range of Cam and Groove (Camlock) couplers and adaptors are manufactured to interchange with all
product produced to Mil Spec A-A 59326, which supersedes Mil-C-27487. No Standard exists for the ½” (15mm) &
8” (200mm) fittings and generally these sizes do not interchange with other manufacturers.
MAXIMUM PRESSURE RATINGS
Designed for use with liquids, consult Dixon Asia Pacific for specific recommendations. Recommendations
based on the use of mating Dixon fittings at ambient temperature 21ºC with standard Buna-N seal installed. For use
at elevated temperature or other unusual operating conditions, consult your Dixon representative.

WELDING OF CAMLOCKS
Couplings made using the diecast process must NOT be welded. Although Aluminium and Bronze Sand
Cast Couplings made from the above materials may be welded using the appropriate welding equipment
and compatible filler material, any modifications to the product will void your warranty. Welding the couplings
changes the integrity of the coupling therefore Dixon Asia Pacific will not accept any responsibility for
modified couplings.
CAMLOCK SAFETY
SAFETY ALERT
• UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should cam and groove (camlock) couplings be used in compressed air or steam applications.
• Dust Caps and Dust Plugs are not to be used in any pressure applications for safety and environmental reasons.
Unlike other safety couplings the EZ Boss-Lock...
• ...is extremely easy to open and ergonomic.
• ...is resistant to accidental disconnection when being dragged.
• ...alerts you if it is not properly engaged - the rotating lever is not flush with the handle.
• ...has no sliding pins to jam - it’s rotating action helps keep the locking device free of debris.
• ...has no sliding pins to pop open - is designed to protect critical parts from impact and with
stand rugged use.
• ...can be supplied with special shanks custom suited to your needs.
• ...is available with swaged and PF shank designs for hard to
couple chemical hoses.
• ...is easier to insert into the hose tubes on Tank Trucks, and
is thefore easier to use in restricted spaces due to the
smaller maximum OD and a more snag free exterior.
• ...can retrofit the Cam Arm assemblies on to undamaged
stainless steel Boss-Locks. This allows you to protect
your investment in Stainless Steel Boss-Lock couplings
while you upgrade.
• ...is made in the USA.

Claw Couplings
Specifications
Minsup Claw Couplings
Minsup Claw Couplings are a universal hose coupling
that provide quick, safe and reliable connections. Claw
couplings are designed with a common or universal
claw which enables differing hose sizes and nominal
bores sizes to be connected. Claw couplings are most
commonly used for conveying air and water, and are not
to be used for steam applications.
Common industry applications: under ground and
surface mining, mineral processing, compressor and
air tool industries, hire companies.
All Minsup Claw Couplings comply with AS 2554 and
AS2660 – Hose and Hose Assemblies for Air/Water.

that the fittings are properly connected as the pin will not
go through the holes in both couplings until the couplings
are locked into place.

NOTE: “Air King” is for Air & Water Service Only
Constant vibration created by air drills, pavement
breakers etc is destructive to air hose couplings,
especially the quick-acting type. To provide protection,
connect one end of a 1 to 3 metre length of air hose to
the tool using the heat-treated “No. 3500” Steel Nipple
which withstands vibration for a longer period. Connect
the other end of “Whip Hose” to the air supply with the
quick-acting coupling.
“Whip Hose” should remain permanently connected to
the tool and should be the same diameter as the supply
line hose.

In-Line Air Lubricators
Designed to protect portable or stationary air tools by efficiently oiling the tool mechanisms.
Each time an air tool is operated, a fine mist of oil is injected into it along with the air from the
compressor. Installation is recommended within 7.5 meters of the tool to be lubricated.
Transparent sight disc allows visual inspection of oil level. Oil flow regulated by screwdriver
screw adjustment.
15mm to 25mm
Air Operated Oil Lubricators
The Minsup oil bottle was developed to ensure continuous & adequate lubrication of
rockdrills over the length of a normal shift. Why 1.2 Litres? This is the calculated oil
usage for one 8 hour shift, when set correctly.
Fixed Jet: 1mm diameter jet designed for use with Rockdrill lubricating oil.
Adjustable Jet: Designed to cater for areas where there is a variation in oil
viscosity, pressure and temperature. Adjustable under pressure, clockwise to decrease flow, anti-clockwise to increase flow.
For correct lubrication the oil bottle should not be placed in excess of three meters
from the machine ensuring that the oil reaches the machine in mist form.
The 1¼” filler plug has a built in pressure release behind the sealing o-ring to allow
pressure to escape in a controlled manner in the case of unintentional opening while
under pressure.
* If a higher working pressure is required please contact your local Dixon representative.

“Boss” Coupling System
PURPOSE: Boss couplings supply a convenient threaded fitting needed to connect two lengths of hose, or a single length to a male or female
threaded (NPT/ BSP) outlet.
FEATURES: The spud part of the coupling serves as one half of the connection and is usually fixed to the equipment. The stem part that is
clamped to the hose is the other half. The two halves are connected or disconnected by rotating the wing nut on the spud. When connected,
they achieve a mechanical as well as a pressure seal.
SERVICES: Boss couplings are all-purpose hose couplings, universally recommended for steam hose connections. They are also widely used
for air, water, fluid petroleum chemicals and liquid petroleum gas up to 1” ID. Boss couplings can be applied to many types of rubber, synthetic,
plastic, metallic or semi-metallic hose. Consult your local Dixon branch for specific media capabilities.

in manufacturing facilities.
• Recommended for steam service up to 230° C.
• Easy to seal.
• Plated steel and/or malleable iron.
• Use with Dixon Boss Clamps in this catalogue.
Washer Type
•A Klinger washer is inserted between the stem and spud.
•A leak proof seal is formed by rotating the wing nut and
hammering it tight.
•Plated steel and/or malleable iron.
Worn-out hose couplings can be dangerous. They should be checked regularly and replaced when
necessary. Each coupling user should review applications and add safety devices where indicated.

Features:
• The bolts used in the Boss interlocking clamps are not
standard bolts. They vary from standard bolts in their length,
diameter, overall thread length and material hardness. These
bolts can be retorqued, but it is not recommended that the
bolts or clamps be reused, as they are designed for a single
bend only. Dixon recommends using only factory supplied
replacement bolts.
• Torque values for clamps are based on dry bolts. The use of
lubricant on bolts will adversely effect clamp performance.
• Do not lubricate nuts and bolts.
• Replacement nuts & bolts are available, contact Dixon for

ANFO Loaders
Quotation Form
Pressure ANFO Loaders
Minsup pressure loaders are manufactured in several sizes 45, 100, 200,
250, 500 kg capacities and are designed for loading prilled ammonium
nitrate/fuel oil (ANFO) in varying diameter drill holes, both in horizontal and
vertical positions. After the loader has been filled to capacity, it is pressurised
by compressed air to the pre-determined discharge pressure, thus the rate
of discharge can be varied to obtain the required density and charge rate.

Scraper Blocks
Scraper Block
49
Minsup Scraper Blocks possess some very intelligent features, that’s why you’ll
find Minsup’s 2.037 tonne scraper blocks on oil fields and construction sites,
lumber yards, inside industrial workshops and in underground mines.
The unit features shielded bearings to prohibit the entry of dirt and water. During
assembly the bearings are packed in grease to last for life. The hook is forged
from strong, dependable alloy steel (safe up to 2.037 tonne), side plates and
the sheave wheels are cast in SG Iron. The block is suitable for either (1/2”)
12.7 mm or (5/8”) 15.9 mm SWR.
Features
• Side plates and sheave wheel are cast in SG iron
• Hook is forged from alloy steel
• M16 bolts are 8.8 high tensile
• M16 Nyloc nuts are grade 8
• Bearing is shielded to prohibit the entry of dirt and water
• Sealed bearing used to remove the need for maintenance
• Hook swivels
• Suitable for use on (1/2”) 12.7mm or (5/8”) 15.9mm steel wire rope
• Safe working load 2 tonne (safety factor 5:1)
• Assembly weight 20kgs
The Snatch Principle
Minsup 152mm (6”) Block incorporates this
very smart idea. Reeving is eliminated and
first entry or removal of fixed end steel rope
is made easy. Note too that the hook swivels.
Unique design allows cable to be passed
between latch plate and side plate
eliminating reeving.
Safety factor 5.
