The BFM® fitting is a revolutionary flexible connector system that eliminates the problems associated with traditional hose clamp systems in bulk powder processing operations. By utilizing two welded collars and a snap-in sleeve, BFM® fittings create a tool-free environment for cleaning and changeover. Comprised of these two basic elements, the flexible sleeve with integral top and bottom snap bands and two matched BFM® collars, the fitting snaps easily into place using only your hands!
BFM®s patented connectors provide superior performance:
- 100% sealed, no mess, no leaks
- Seals tighter under pressure
- No product build-up means better hygiene
- No tools required for fitting
- Snap-in design makes installation easy
- Standardized connector sizes mean you need to keep less stock
