    Where to find: SS Camlocks, compression fitting and reducing bushes


    I'm looking for these parts locally, I'm considering a grainfather camlock conversion. Does anyone know where I can find all of it in one go?

    STAINLESS STEEL 1/2 INCH X 3/8 INCH BSP REDUCING BUSH
    SS CAMLOCK - TYPE D FEMALE X 1/2INCH BSP FEMALE
    Conversion of GF top recirculation arm:-
    SS CAMLOCK - TYPE A MALE X 1/2 INCH FEMALE
    12.7MM COMPRESSION FITTING TO 1/2 INCH BSP
    Conversion part for the CFC :-
    SS CAMLOCK - TYPE E MALE X 13MM BARB


    I found these resources for the camlocks online, but no reducing bush or compression fittings listed.

    Cape Town or SA online ordering preferred.

    I usually go to Multi-Metals in Paarden Island. They will have the bushes but dont stock the camlocks (though i'm sure they can point you to someone).
    Compression fittings you could try Fluid co.
    Others recommend NDE but I've never been there myself.

    When I did my GF changes, I just bought another check valve to convert from their proprietary thread (non-standard ACME) to standard BSP. Equally you could buy a replacement chiller connector.

    What conversion are you specifically looking to do?

    Sparge arm and CFC converted to camlocks , it's a minor conversion for iffy benefits

    feels dear to import this (out of stock in the UK naturally)

    Yeah, it's not necessary or essential. I want to do it anyway, threads and o-rings vs no threads and o-rings. Simple

    ah OK

    I use nylon camlocks for my wort transfer but I'm not sure how they will hold up with sustained heat. But they are cheap enough to replace every couple of months.
