Sanitary connection for Dairy

The regular gas purging of the system forced powder through small gaps in the old-style sock and steel clamp connector.

This caused an unhygienic environment and hours of down-time for regular cleaning. There was also a major contamination point created by significant product build up between the externally fitted sock and hopper.

The steel strapping clamps were very time consuming to remove and re-fit during sock cleaning & replacement.

The installation of a BFM® fitting sanitary connector for both the upper and lower connections has created a sealed system, and the filling room is now a dust-free environment.

The pressure from the gas purging no longer causes product leakage, and because the fitting sits inside the spigot, there is no product build-up at the connector joins.

When the fittings do need replacing, it’s now a quick and easy snap-fit process.


Since installing the BFM® fitting sanitary connector system, the room is clean and there has been a significant reduction in both downtime and replacement costs.

Have you checked out the BFM® IG calculator?

The biggest single cause of product 'failure' for BFM® fitting is an incorrect Installation Gap - ie. the space left between the spigots is either too big or too small for the connector chosen.

Understanding the correct IG is easy with the BFM® IG Calculator. Check it out here.
