BFM® fitting

Preventing dust leakage saves hundreds of hours cleaning

“We are ecstatic with the BFM installation.  We used to work in a very dusty environment but now the room is dust free which saves a huge amount of cleaning time.  We no longer have contamination issues as powder can’t build up between the sleeve and the clamp band.”

♦ The Challenge 
A leading milk powder plant was experiencing severe dust leakage and contamination from a vibratory bin discharger.  Injecting CO2 and nitrogen created pressure in the vessel, forcing powder through clamp bands securing the 900mm diameter connector and causing build up plus contamination in the lower 200mm diameter connector.
