Increased Explosion Protection with BFM Fittings

October 2, 2013

Serving as a replacement for standard flexible hose couplings, BFM fittings actually seal tighter as the pressure increases, providing processing plants with superior explosion protection if a high-pressure event occurs. Optional Kevlar sleeve covers provide even more protection. BFM fittings can be used in any industry where flexible hose couplings are required, including sanitary applications. Their design works extremely well with offset, vibrating, and oscillating equipment. They eliminate pinch points and gaps that allow powders to leak, preventing a major cause of explosions and premature sleeve wear. BFM fittings easily snap-in-place without tools. A wide variety of materials, diameters, and lengths are available.
