Seeflex 040E is one of the available materials for BFM® fitting connectors. Not only is it transparent, but it is also exceptionally durable making it the primary choice for most industrial applications. BFM® fittings provide faster, cleaner, and safer connections in process lines where vibration, expansion, contraction, or portability issues prevent permanent solid-pipe connections.
  • Seeflex 040E is a clear ether-based thermoplastic polyurethane alloy.
  • Seeflex 040E has no shape memory and will not fracture as a result of repetitive movement.
  • Used on all types of stationary, vibratory & gyratory sifters, screeners, feeders, bin discharges, hoppers, conveyors, packing equipment or any product handling equipment.
  • Superior chemical resistance for CIP and washing.
  • Excellent abrasion resistance.
  • Smooth welded seam.
  • Dust control sleeves and transitions. Once in place, these connectors eliminate fugitive dust making them the first choice for dust-free factories.
  • Also known as industrial flexible sleeves, connectors, bellows, boots, socks, and transitions.
  • Replaces old gum rubber tubing/hose and clamp sleeves.
  • Snap-in connection installs in seconds.
  • Provides sanitary connections between process equipment.
  • Certified for use in USDA and 3-A powder applications
