Keep Your Plant Dust Free

Title Line

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.

BFM® in the Battery Industry

Title Line

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.
