Transforming Chemical Manufacturing

Transforming Chemical Manufacturing

As anyone working in a Chemical production facility knows, keeping your manufacturing environment dust free is a constant challenge. Flexible connectors are often difficult to fit, prone to leakage and time consuming to replace. On top of this, finding connectors that are both chemical resistant, and compliant with stringent international ATEX explosion standards, is extremely difficult.

The BFM® fitting system is the perfect solution:

Regulatory compliance Regulatory compliance: Flexible connector blow-outs and leakage are eliminated because flexible BFM® Connectors seal from the inside. Fully tested and ATEX certified to be used in potentially explosive dust areas, providing H&S compliance
Regulatory compliance Chemical resistance: Standard Seeflex range has superior chemical resistance (particularly for CIP and washing) and our Teflex products can be used across the full pH scale
Health & Safety Health & Safety: The 100% dust-tight seal on our Seeflex range eliminates dust leakage and provides a much cleaner production environment
easy installation Easy installation: The simplicity and standardization of our distinctive snap-fit BFM® blue band connector means they are fast and simple for all staff to replace.
reduced downtime Reduced downtime: The simple snap-fit system has created significant time savings in terms of cleaning change-overs and maintenance downtime
standardisation Standardization: Simplify the variety of connectors and materials throughout your plant with our standardized sizing - drastically reduces inventory and provides easier stock control

BFM® in the Battery Industry

BFM® understands the degree of difficulty when dealing with extremely fine powders such as lithium nickel cobalt manganese oxide (10µ). A traditional hose-clamped connection will struggle to contain the material flowing, resulting in powder leakage throughout the production area as well as a time-consuming cleaning and changeover process. When it comes to powder processing, investing in quality equipment for process lines is essential - but any machinery is only as good as the flexible connection system that links the processes together.
