IndusTrAle®: DICSA industrial flexible hoses & fittings
IndusTrAle®: Discover the Dicsa´s brand of industrial flexible hoses & fittings. The company has a wide range of industrial flexible hoses & fittings with even the most demanding specifications. This specialty works in a broad range of industrial uses: water, air, food industry, welding, abrasive, hydrocarbons, chemicals, etc.
In total, 25 types of hoses capable of hosting a broad range of pressures (from 4 bars to 80 bars) with a working temperature from -40C to + 100C.
Dicsa has extended its range of industrial fittings, in total it has 15 types of couplings:
Barcelona, TW, Camlock, Mortar Camlock, Guillemin, Storz, EA, Chicago, Express, Geka, Sandblast,
Bauer, Perrot, Steam Boss & EN14423 Steam. These fittings are available in several materials,
carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass; as a novelty we have included polypropylene and
nylon, both are characterised for being very light.
Barcelona is a fire coupling is used by Spanish firefighters designed to norm UNE 23400. It is
a symmetrical sexless coupling. On one side, it is formed by cylindrical cavity with three engaging
lugs that are connected by ¼ turn. On the other side a hose coupling, thread or size reduction.
There are three different sizes available: 25, 40 and 50, the distance between its lugs is 45, 65,
and 68 millimeters, respectively.
TW-couplings are asymmetric couplings intended to link hoses with connections for the
transport of liquids, solid matters and gases with the exception of liquid gas and steam. They are
used for charge and discharge hoses attached to road tankers. They are produced in brass alloy,
aluminum alloy and stainless steel materials according to DIN 28450, EN 14420-6, BS2464-3
standards. TW is provided with female part MK, male part VK, blind caps MB VB, and MKS
Bauer are commonly used for the pumping and transfer of water in the construction, road
maintenance and general irrigation industries. They can also be used for loading and unload road
tankers including slurry tankers. Bauer Couplings are quickly and easily coupled/uncoupled
with a few effortless hand actions. These couplings are available in carbon steel.
Perrot quick connect couplings are widely used in the agricultural, industrial fields,
civil engineering and dewatering. They can also be used for loading and unload dry abrasive
materials. These couplings are available in carbon steel.
The Guillemin couplings are symmetrical. They are connected by 4 hooks if the installation
is mobile they in general the coupler with locking ring that makes the connection between the two
couplers. At least one of the 2 couplers needs locking ring. They are widely used in the industries
and transportation of oil and petroleum products, fluid or viscous, including hot asphalt,
chemicals, powders as well as food industry (stainless steel). They are manufactured in carbon
steel and stainless steel, according to NF- E 29572 standard. Guillemin coupling was also referred
to Symmetrical half coupling or French coupling. They are widely used in France and in Belgium to
couple hoses and resembles a DSP coupling, which is used in firefighting.
/Camlock y Mortar Camlock/
Camlock also called cam and groove coupling, . This kind of coupling is popular because it
is a simple and reliable means of connecting and disconnecting hoses quickly and without tools.
They are easy to use (extend the handles on the coupler outwards and place the correct size male
adapter into the female coupler, close both handles at the same time until the two halves are
firmly fixed together, closing both handles at the same time insures that the grooved adapter is
pulled down consistently onto the seal making a leak proof assembly for the safe transfer of
liquids and reverse the process to disconnect the fitting making sure before doing so that the hose
assembly has been de-pressurised). They are manufactured in aluminium, stainless steel, brass and
polypropylene, according to EN14420-7 standard and depend on material and size can withstand
pressure up to 10 bar.
In addition, Dicsa has safety lock for female to ensure that no accidental
Mortar Camlock design of the mortar coupling is very similar to Camlock couplings, because
is simple and reliable but withstands higher pressure (until 50 bar). The mortar couplings are
widely used in mortar mixers and pumps, concrete transport systems, etc. They are avaible in carbon
steel and in many sizes though two systems “22 mm” and “23,5
Sandblast is a quick coupling that is designed to convey abrasive sand and shot blast
material. They are indicated for sandblasting, concrete and cement transfer. They are manufactured
in carbon steel, aluminum, brass and nylon.
Storz couplings are symmetrical couplings with a bayonet locking system which is protected
by a collar. They are used quick-disconnect couplings for transportation of fluids and powdered
products in applications such as water, petrol, chemical products, as well as pumps, suction hoses
in agriculture. They are manufactured in aluminum according to DIN1430 standard. The Storz coupling
size is determined by the internal lug distance.
Geka couplings are symmetric quick couplings designed for agricultural, gardening,
construction and public service applications. Geka couplings are connected by pushing and rotating
the two couplings together. The distance between the claws being 40 mm. Available in brass with NBR
EA o European Air: Symmetric coupling for air and water applications, never be used for
steam applications. The couplings are pushed together and rotated to form a seal. Due to the
lateral and angular shape of the seal an instant force is set, which prevent pressure loss due to
vibration. These look similar to Express and Geka couplings, but EA couplings have a 42 mm distance
between the claws. European air couplings are heavy-duty claw couplings manufactured in compliance
with DIN 3489, in carbon steel with BSP thread, hose shank or blind cap.
UA or Chicago Coupling also called Universal air coupling. They are symmetric couplings
that are recommended for use on air lines for pneumatic equipment. Do not use with steam. Chicago
coupling is provided with hose shank, four claw design for sizes above 1¼". The distance between
the claws being 41 mm. Available in carbon steel with NPT threaded, hose shank or blind
Express couplings are symmetrical half-couplings used for water and air applications
complying with the NF E 29-573 standard. The two couplings are pushed together and rotated to form
a seal. The claws of express couplings are spaced at a standard 41 mm and are not interchangeable
with Geka and European air couplings. Available on carbon steel with BSP threaded, hose shank or
/IndustrΔle® steam couplings/
Steam couplings are commonly used for compressed air, water, liquid petroleum gas, fluid
petroleum products, chemical, potable fluids and almost any other type of fluid or gas.
(Never use quick-release couplings for steam applications.) They are available in carbon
Boss couplings also called Dinbo steam couplings. "Boss" couplings consist of hose stems,
wing nuts, spud adapters and interlocking clamps. They are supplied in the complete kit, included
IndusTrΔle® steam couplings complying with EN 14423/ DIN 2826 are available in BSP female
& BSPT male threaded fittings, they also have a clamp to hose assembly.
Dicsa is adapted to the specific requirements of their client with this wide range of
industrial flexible hoses & fittings. In addition, IndusTrΔle® range also has accessories
to industrial fittings assembly. The company has included crimping ferrules available in
aluminum, carbon steel and stainless steel. It also has a wide range of clamps: W1, W2, DIN 20039,
Boss, EN14423, EN14420-3, EXPRESS.
Dicsa also offer you adapted solutions to grow with you. Dicsa Technical Department study each
case individualized way and offer the possibility to use standard fittings in industrial hoses. For
this reason, Dicsa uses its innovative test benches to certificate hoses optimum working and its
