Features & Benefits

A typical tanker trailer will carry and unload a combination of diesel fuel and various grades of gasoline. The camlock couplings used on the hose and fittings are the same size and design regardless of the fuel being loaded or unloaded. Even with color coding and tagging systems in place crossovers can happen if a driver is distracted or not paying attention to procedures. The KamKey™ coupling is the final barrier to preventing crossovers. When used as a complete system to tag, load and unload fuel where each fuel has its own KamKey coupling configuration it will eliminate crossovers and simplify procedures designed to prevent crossovers. The KamKey coupling will eliminate the high cost of crossovers related to:

  • Downtime of tanker trailers and service stations
  • Pumping out and cleaning tanks
  • Treatment and disposal of mixed product
  • Down grading of premium fuel
  • Tarnished brand image for oil companies and carriers
  • Damage to vehicles
  • Health and Safety
  • Liability
