The BFM® fitting offers a wide range of benefits over a hose clamped connector. Some of these are outlined below:
|Standard Hose Clamped Flexible Connectors||BFM™ fitting|
|Hygiene||Product building up between the flexible connector and the sidewall of the spigot||No crevices for product to get caught in.|
|Sizing||From inaccuracies in measuring onsite through to production, it can be very difficult to get a perfect fit of a hose clamped connector.||PERFECT fit every time|
|Fitting||Both the speed and accuracy of fitting hose clamps can vary widely and often clamps are not fitted correctly.||Can only fit in exactly the correct place, i.e. in or out.|
|Explosion||In an overpressure situation hose clamps are normally always the weakest link and give up or let go long before the flexible connector would be due to rupture.||Only seals tighter under high pressures.|
|Standard Sizes||Current flexible connectors are made any size whatsoever, hence there are thousands of different sizes.||Set standard sizes in 50mm increments helps standardise stock holdings of spare parts.|
|Health & Safety||When using screwdrivers to tighten up hoseclips, damage is common to the flexible connector and even the installers hands.||Tool free connector changing, simply snap in with your hands.|
