Easy, Reliable and Safe

Although designed for mining use, the range works equally well in other traditional PE pipeline applications such as irrigation and industrial. The design ensures that installation is as easy as possible and that it works every time.

    Ease of Assembly & Disassembly

    Ease of Assembly: Easylok fittings have been designed to ensure that installation is as easy as possible and that it works everytime. When working with large pipes, installation can be challenging not only because of the size of the pipe but also the conndition of the pipe. Recognising this Easylok fittings are installed by taking them apart and then putting the components on separately. These parts all go onto the pipe easily and ensure that everything is positioned correctly no matter the condition of the pipe. The pipe can then be pushed into the body of fitting and the nut fully tightened. Installation is made easy and 100% reliable with Easylok.
    Ease of Disassembly: Easylok fittings have been designed so that they can be re-used. Once the fitting is installed it is a simple matter of loosening the nut with multigrips or a spanner. Once the nut has been loosened the internal components can easily be released and the pipe removed from the fitting. Disassembly could not be easier.

    Air line Safety

    Philmac strongly recommends that fittings should never be disconnected on a live air line. However in the event that work commences on an air line before the air supply is switched off, the use of Philmac EasyLOK fittings will ensure that a warning is given to the user that the line is live. The user can then switch off the air supply and continue working on the line in a safe manner.

    Designed to minimise pipe twist

    The fitting has been designed to minimise pipe twist as the nut is tightened. Maximum pipe twist is approximately three quarters of a turn compared to one and a half turns with many other fittings. Pipe twist can impact on not only the connection you have just made but also on the connection at the other end of the line.

    Visual Stop

    The flange on the body of the EasyLOK fitting provides a visual stop to indicate when the nut is fully tightened. This removes any uncertainty from the installation process.

    Impact Resistance

    EasyLOK fittings are made from a high grade of polypropylene to provide significant resistance to impact. There is always a risk of impact so the fitting must be tough and durable to provide a long life. At the same time if in the unlikely circumstances that the material should fail due to impact, it will result in a ductile rather than a brittle failure. This means that there is no risk of injury through a fitting explosion when used in a compressed air application.

    Chemical Resistance

    Standard compression fittings are supplied with nitrile seals which fail when they come into contact with acids. EasyLOK fittings are supplied with EPDM seals which means that the fittings can withstand a wide range of chemicals without having to switch components.
