Common Problems with Equipment Connections

Title Line

Most Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) pride themselves on creating high-quality processing equipment. Yet, customers often let down their machinery's opearting efficiency and performance by using low-quality clamped sleeves to connect equipment in their production lines. 

Poor flexible connections often result in:

  • product leakage
  • frequent failures
  • expensive downtime

Our unique BFM® spigot and flexible connector solution eliminates those issues and is being used in factories all over the globe. 

By working with us, OEMs committed to providing factories with high-quality product solutions can now offer their customers additional value and a better overall quality experience. 



Before and After BFM®


Why choose BFM®? Because it's the best way to connect machinery.

Title Line

After seeing all of the problems caused by traditional hose-clamp flexible connections, like product leakage and frequent connector failures due to operating pressure, CEO and Founder, Blair McPheat knew there had to be a better way to connect pieces of equipment in a production line.

That's when a 2am brainwave led to the development of the world-first snap-in BFM® fitting that is now solving problems factories experience with clamped systems. Even oscillating and vibratory equipment and those operating under high pressure or vacuum can be connected without leaks and changed in minutes. 

The BFM® Advantage

Title Line
The incredible seal on the BFM® fitting system means there is no leakage even under pressure. In fact the more pressure applied, the better the seal.

There are no tools required to install BFM® connectors. Simply bend and position the cuff against the grooves of the spigot and release the tension!

The simple snap-fit installation of our connectors means that they are fast and simple to replace for all staff.
