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: BFM® Seeflex connectors are 3A approved, and conform with FDA, USDA, EC and ATEX regulations.|
|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: No tools needed to remove or install the flexible connector in difficult positions ensures a much safer change-over process.|
|Easy installation: The quick and easy snap-fit of our BFM® blue band connector means they are fast and simple for all staff to replace.|
|Reduced downtime: More durable materials and fast, easy changeovers mean downtime is significantly reduced.|
|Standardization: Simplify the variety of connectors and materials throughout your plant with our standardized sizing - drastically reduces inventory and provides easier stock control|
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.
A pure PTFE connector capable of running at high temperatures, and can be used across the full pH scale. Teflex NP Black also offers excellent surface resistivity - 106.
PTFE is compliant with FDA CFR21 177.1550 & CFR 178.3297, (EC) 1935/2004 10/2011.
Note: Teflex NP Black is not recommended for use in oscillating applications. For vibrating applications, please discuss with your local BFM® Distributor.
