For applications under stronger vacuum and / or vertical movement (e.g. attaching / detaching the connector to various height containers), the BFM® connectors may be supplied with one or more enforcement ring(s) or a wire coil. Advantages are:
For use of BFM® connectors in places with temporary or continuous pressure, we recommend using a BFM® Kevlar cover over the standard BFM® Seeflex connector. This cover can also be attached and detached tool-free and stops the Seeflex material from over-stretching under pressure, hence avoiding premature damage to the connector material.
BFM® connectors are also available with an enforced snap band which can not be opened by hand anymore. A special opening tool is available. The enforced snap ring provides a dust-tight connection even if working in an underpressure atmosphere.
As the pressure and vacuum resistance of any BFM® connector depends on many factors, please contact us for more details. We are happy to discuss your individual requirements with you to find your perfect BFM® solution.
