“It’s so much easier for us to physically replace a connector and we know it’s always fitted correctly in the right position. It’s also given us so much more confidence in terms of maintaining our strict clean-room hygiene. There’s no risk of product leakage or dropping of clamp components into the processing vessels during changeovers. Brilliant!”
Kristof Greens, Project Engineer, Plasma Industries, Belgium
“From the day I first turned on our equipment with the BFM® fitting installed, I was amazed. There was no more sand cloud and absolutely zero powder leakage. Our employees now work in safer environment, and labour costs have been cut as there is no longer a need for frequent cleaning.”
Jeff Goodell, Director of Facilities and Maintenance, AMEDICA
Pharmaceutical production facilities are required to comply with stringent international ATEX explosion standards, and be environmentally safe. They’re also looking for the highest hygiene standards, whilst minimising failure points and interruptions.
The BFM® fitting is the perfect solution:
|Regulatory compliance: BFM® Seeflex connectors are 3A approved, and conform with FDA, USDA, EC and ATEX regulations.|
|Improved hygiene and environment: There is no more dust leakage, eliminating cross-contamination of products and reducing general housekeeping costs.|
|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 signiicantly reduced.|
|Standardisation: The variety of flexible connectors and materials can be drastically reduced meaning easier stock control and supply.|
"I was amazed - absolutely zero powder infiltrated from the sleeve."
AMEDICA is the only medical technology company in the world that has FDA clearance to use medical grade silicon nitride ceramic powder to manufacture revolutionary spinal implants. This requires an extremely high level of hygiene. When processed, however, this fine-as-talc powder infiltrated processing equipment connections and created a consistently powdery atmosphere, threatening the health of AMEDICA’s employees.
“From the day I first turned on our bulk powder processing equipment with the BFM® fitting installed, I was amazed. There was no more sand cloud and absolutely zero powder infiltrated from the sleeve. Our employees now work in safer environment, and labour costs have been cut as there is no longer a need for frequent cleaning” said Jeff Goodell, Director of Facilities and Maintenance for AMEDICA .
