The Challenge

Title Line

Major production issues with regular stoppages for blockages caused by the build-up of cement on the canvas connector due to moisture absorption.

There was leakage of dust around the connector fittings, and inaccuracy in the weighing due to the dust build-up. Regular intervention was required by maintenance staff to unblock and change the worn connectors.

Each change was extremely time-consuming due to the jubilee clip fastening system.


The BFM® Solution

Title Line

By installing a polyurethane BFM® fitting, there is no longer an issue with down-time due to blockages and product is now free-flowing.

The general environment is much cleaner as there is no dust leakage from the connectors and weighing inaccuracy has been reduced.

The BFM® connectors are also outlasting their canvas predecessors by 10 times, and changing time for connectors is reduced from 20 minutes to 1 minute.

What the client said about BFM®

Title Line

“Our old canvas weigh hopper connectors used to block regularly which meant we had to stop production while we sorted it out. BFM® has totally solved the problem and we have had no lost production ever since. The factory is also much safer and cleaner”
