Quick Access Port Option

Quick Access Port Seeflex 040E

Product Description:

The Quick Access Port Connector features a polyurethane thread port hole and a stainless steel screw-in plug that is inserted in the side wall of a standard BFM® Seeflex 040E or Seeflex 060ES connector. The Quick Access Port is designed to give easy, clean access to a product flow for actions such as metal detector drop-ball testing, product sampling or adding small volumes of ingredients during manufacturing.

Complies with:

  • FDA 21 CFR 177.1680 & 177.2600, USDA, (EC) 1935/2004, 2023–2006 & 10/2011
  • Atex Compliant: IBExU tested and can be used in all dust explosion hazardous areas. (Refer to our Certification & Compliance page).

We are still awaiting 3A assessment in terms of this design change so any connector with a Quick Access port inserted will technically not be 3A compliant.

Key features/uses:

  • Screw port provides fast and easy access to product flow without having to remove the connector.
  • Product flow is not interrupted for regular metal detector testing or product sampling
  • Because the connector doesn’t need to be removed, there is no product spillage or wastage
  • Does not affect the physical performance of the connector 

Available on Connector Sizes: 

Diameters: Ø150mm (6") through to Ø1,650mm (65") in 50mm (2") increments
