BFM® Global Ltd is the manufacturer of the BFM® fitting system, the unique, patented product designed as a solution for problems commonly experienced with traditional, clamped-style industrial connectors.
Its inventor and company CEO is Blair F. McPheat, who says the BFM® came about as a simple case of 'see a need, fill a need'.
“I was visiting plants selling filtration products and was constantly seeing the issues manufacturers were having with dust leakage around their flexible connections.”
“The downtime involved for clean-ups and refits was costing a lot in lost production,” said Blair. “I knew there had to be a better way and it played on my mind constantly.”
His initial design was perfected to become the BFM® fitting.
It’s a unique concept that has been quickly embraced by leading manufacturers in the food, pharmaceutical, chemical and mineral industries around the globe. Quality OEM manufacturers are also recognizing the value BFM® fitting systems add to their products, installing them to their machinery as standard before they leave their factories.
