The world's first "clamp-less & snap in" connector and is a revolutionary advance on the traditional connector that is used for the transfer of mainly powder type products. The connector is flexible as frequently one item of the plant is vibrating whilst the recipient item of plant is stationary.
Standard connectors are secured by hose clips which are difficult to fit and can easily be fitted incorrectly resulting in the loss or contamination of product. Hygiene is also a problem in that the product can build up between connector material and the sidewall of the spigot. Many powder products are also of an explosive nature and in an over pressure situation are likely to let go. The BFM® fitting is a completely new concept in that it eliminates the need for hose clips. The newly designed and manufactured stainless steel flange/spigot eliminates the crevasse between the side walls of the spigot and the flexible connector. The fitting will also accommodate various connector materials such as – Polyurethane, Polyester, Nylon, Aramid, Kevlar, PTFE etc.
