How Flexible Connectors Affect Your Bottom Line

Title Line

When your flexible connectors tear or leak constantly, the efficiency of your production line reduces dramatically.

There's downtime needed to replace the connector, and labour costs in cleaning up product spillage.  And then, of course, there is the cost of the wasted product itself.

To improve your operational efficiency, you need to have durable, quality flexible connectors that last the distance and perform consistently, so that your production can continue without interruption.

Less Downtime

Old-style clamped connectors are difficult to fit correctly and often tear, causing product spillages and production downtime for replacements.

The unique snap-in fit of the BFM® fitting mean changeovers can be done in as little as 30 seconds.  The materials are also extremely durable and won't rip or tear so need to be replaced less often.

Manufacturers often have a multitude of different connectors being used in any one plant, with varying material types, fitting styles, quality, and safety conformity.

With BFM® connectors, you can standardize connector sizes across the factory. That means you need to keep less spare stock on hand plus you'll get a consistent fit - no matter who does the replacement.

Case Study

The canvas weigh hopper connectors at a leading British concrete products manufacturer absorbed moisture, making them prone to blockages.

This caused considerable lost productivity and poor weighing accuracy. To add to the problem, jubilee clips caused excessive dust leakage and made replacement extremely time-consuming.
