Application Media to cover most applications. Superior Strength and abrasion resistance. Greater resistance to chemical and UV conditions as well as liquid and CIP. Media to applications where static is a problem. Useful in applications with explosion risks and for metal detection. Best for specialized weighing applications; minimal weight transmission due to lighter weight fabric and increased Flexability. Perfect when some Breathability is required to alleviate pressure. Used for higher temperature Environments (temperatures up to 130 C) LM3 Connectors have introduced to the BFM range for low temperature applications. For example Temperatures and highly resistant also against alkalis/ acidic/ caustic products. BFM Camlon connectors are predominantly used in applications where the connector is running under continuous pressure of up to 1.3 bar. The Camlon outer layer restricts the Seeflex 040E inner layer of the sleeve from stretching. Kevlar is typically used in over pressure and potentially explosive applications. The BFM WM12K (Kevlar) Cover is designed to fit over existing connectors and can be tightened onto the BFM Spigot using the butterfly mechanism at the top and the base of the connector. It is very easy to install and remove, no tools required.
