BFM fittings are a safe, efficient and flexible connector for conveying and process equipment. Simply squeeze the snap band and slide the sleeve in or out of the spigot, then release – it only takes a minute or two. BFM sleeves fit perfectly, identical every time, no matter who installs them.
An assembly consists of a BFM flexible sleeve, with stainless snap bands on both ends, and two metal-formed spigots. After welding the spigots to process piping, the BFM sleeve can be installed or removed without tools.
The dust-tight seal virtually eliminates leakage, keeping a plant cleaner and safer. And, because the flexible sleeve fits inside the spigots, the seal gets even tighter in the event of a sudden pressure shock. BFM fittings have been explosion tested by an independent agency.
The inside of sleeve and spigots is crevice free, which prevents product build-up and reduces the risk of bacteria growth and cross-contamination. BFM flexible sleeves don’t have any pinch or wear points that could cause premature failure in offset, vibratory and oscillating applications (a common problem with old-fashioned sleeves and hose clamps).BFM sleeves can be made from clear polyurethane, woven polyester, PTFE and other materials. Sleeves are available in diameters from 4 to 48 inches and any length.
