BFM Fittings Advantages
- BFM Fittings ensure an absolute seal meaning there are no leaks or dust. This snap-in, flexible connector and spigot eliminates the leaking problems associated with traditional hose clamp systems. Additionally, the fittings prevent` product build-up to keep your equipment clean. Whether under positive or negative pressure, BFM Fittings improve system performance.
- Health and safety risks to workers hands are reduced when installing BFM Fittings as no tools are required. These fittings further increase safety and productivity by eliminating connector blow outs and leakage as they seal from the inside. Traditional hose-clamp systems frequently have hose clamp failure due to over-pressure and explosions, but pressure only tightens the seal of our BFMfittings.
- BFM Fittings also increase the efficiency of your process. The more flexible, robust materials of BFM connectors extend the product life, snap-in fit makes installation easy and standardized BFM connector sizes mean you need to keep less stock on hand. Changing connectors can be completed in less than a minute preventing expensive outages of your equipment. BFM Fittings are the perfect fit every time.
- BFM Fittings are especially designed for sifters that rotate, shake and vibrate. Their flexibility ensures that movement does not damage the system. The clear material makes product checks easy as workers can monitor the quality of the product as it goes through the piping without having to stop the process.
