"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 we started using them. The factory is also much safer and cleaner."
Factory Manager, UK Concrete Products Manufacturer
"Plaster is very fine and gets everywhere. It’s difficult to contain, particularly when your connecting sleeve has holes in it! The BFM® connector seals inside the spigot so it can’t chafe on the sharp edges . It lasts for longer and best of all it doesn’t leak any dust.”

The abrasive, corrosive nature of materials within the Mineral Industry’s production environments makes for a unique challenge. The BFM® fitting system introduces new levels of operational efficiency, helping to reduce time spent on maintenance and increase productivity levels.
The benefits of BFM® fitting system are clear:
|Improved hygiene: The 100% dust-tight seal eliminates dust leakage and provides a much cleaner production environment.|
|Health & Safety: No need for tools to change-over, ensuring a much safer environment for staff.|
|Explosion resistant: 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, ensuring H&S compliance.|
|Standardisation: The variety of connectors and materials can be drastically reduced meaning easier stock control and supply.|
|Reduced downtime: The simple flexible, snap-fit system creates significant time savings in terms of cleaning and changeovers.|
|Easy installation: The simplicity and standardisation of the snap-fit flexible BFM® connector means they are fast and simple for all staff to replace.|
