    Default Tanker Modifications

    We would like to retro-fit our tanker with a "quick-fill" CAMLOCK fitting.

    Anyone know where we can buy the necessary parts?

    Try www.grainger.com. They sell cam and groove couplings that might be what you are looking for. Good luck.

    We have made adapters from 2 1/2 females to 2" camloc male and females this way you don't have to replumb unit. You'll need to make safety straps to secure the locks. We use them all the time, farmers and fertilizer companys use the 2" camloc as a standard fitting and we use them as tenders when in the country.

    We went with 2 1/2" camlocks mounted on 25'hose. It suppose to be supplied from our 5"ldh port.hydrant. We feel this combo works best for us, its alot easier than trying to do it with 5" or 4". stay safe

    Default Try 4" storz

    Try 4" STORZ with a 4" check valve at the tanker. No great pressure buildup as long as the tanker vents properly. You can disconnect as soon as the supply line is shut. Only head pressure at the fill connection. We just completed a ISO drill and this configuration fed by a 25' 4" line had the higest GPM fill rate.
