BFM fitting is the connector of choice for global manufacturers in the food, chemical, pharmaceutical and mineral industries. From metal detectors to sifters, high pressure or vacuum, BFM fitting connectors are used in a wide range of industrial applications.
Years of expertise and industry knowledge have created a transformed flexible connector.
Benefits of BFM Connectors vs Traditional Hose Clamps
The BFM Fitting system comprises two spigots (or flanges) that are welded to your pipes, and a snap-fit flexible connector that seats on the inside of the shaped portion of the two spigots, holding it securely in place; The stainless steel spigots have a tail 52mm long. These can be easily cut down or cut on an angle to suit your existing pipework.
BFM's flexible connectors are available in a wide range of diameters and lengths. Pipe and spigot length can be adjusted to ensure the optimum fit within an appropriate Installation Gap (IG) for the connector length (CL).
The Installation Gap is always slightly smaller than the actual connector length to allow for ease of connector replacement and any offset or movement during operation.
BFM Fitting Product Range
The system works by pumping pressurised air
between the silicone cuff of the BFM® connector
and the spigot.
Air line sensors immediately detect if this outward
pressure is released as the connector cuff begins
to get pushed inwards anywhere around the
connector when it is being removed, setting off an
alarm and/or shutting off any moving parts below.
The system has a tamper-proof gauge, and can
also be used as a positional sensor to ensure all
connectors in a large plant are installed correctly at
