The Challenge

Title Line

The extremely fine silicon nitride ceramic powder could not be contained by the traditional hose clamp system and the constant dust-cloud within the factory meant staff had to wear respirators. There were major hygiene issues with product being caught for long periods of time between the flanges and the connectors, and caked-on powder had to be manually scrubbed off processing equipment.


The BFM® Solution

Title Line

The BFM® fitting system was installed within two weeks from the initial consultation.

The sealed system created by the BFM® fittings meant no powder was able to escape and the environment is now dust-free. Staff no longer need to wear respirators or spend hours manually scrubbing powder off equipment.


Benefits Achieved

Removed significant health risk to workers - no longer need to wear respirators.

Perfect fit every time – only in the correct place. There is now no room for possible leakage.

Our employees now work in safer environment, and labour costs have been cut as there is no longer a need for frequent cleaning.”
