The Benefits

BFM™ sanitary tank fittings offer a wide range of benefits over hose-clamped connectors. Some of these are outlined below:

  Standard Hose-Clamped Flexible Connectors BFM™ Sanitary Tank Fitting System
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 installer's hands. Tool free connector changing, simply snap in with your hands.
