“From the day I first turned on our equipment with the BFM® fitting installed, I was amazed. There was no more sand cloud and absolutely zero powder leakage. Our employees now work in safer environment, and labour costs have been cut as there is no longer a need for frequent cleaning.”
Jeff Goodell, Director of Facilities and Maintenance, AMEDICA
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. Click on the video above to see how BFM® compares to standard clamped/hose-clip style connectors.
“BFM® is such a simple idea which translates into real benefit in our plant. It is impossible to fit BFM® fittings incorrectly and there’s no build up, so weighing problems are a thing of the past, saving us a small fortune. They’re also 100% dust tight which reduces our cleaning bills.”

Traditional connectors with clamps on the outside can be difficult to fit properly, and product escapes between the crevices, especially when pressure runs through the system. Because the BFM® fitting seals from the inside, there is nowhere for the dust to leak from, and unlike traditional connectors, they just seal tighter under pressure. No more leaks, no dust escaping into the factory and no time-consuming clean-ups.
Traditional clamped connectors provide crevices between the outer edge of the pipe and the inside of the connector where product can build-up and become a hygiene risk. With the BFM® fitting system, the connector sits inside the pipe, nestling snugly against the shaped spigot head so there is nowhere for product to accumulate. No product build up means no contamination risk.
The superior seal of the BFM® fitting means that you can run your CIP with the connectors in place and there will be no leakage - just watch the video below.
NB: We do recommend removing the connectors after CIP and wiping off any cleaning residue from the cuffs of the connectors and inside the spigots to ensure maximum connector life.
