Powder-Solutions BFM fittingsTapered BFM fittings for surge bins and hoppers provide quick visual confirmation of product flow and volume. They’re an ideal interface between production and packaging in dry, sanitary processes. Design is USDA accepted and 3A certified. They work exceptionally well with vibrating, oscillating and gyratory equipment. If an over-pressure incident occurs, they seal tighter than old-school hose clamps, providing an extra level of safety for personnel and your facility. BFM fittings snap-in-place, without tools, in just a minute or two. They can be cleaned in place or removed for cleaning. Custom connections are available. Applications include dairy, food and baking industries that handle cereal, grain, sugar, rice, proteins, whey and other products.
