The BFM® fitting is a revolutionary, snap-in, flexible connector and spigot
that eliminates problems associated with traditional hose clamp connections.

BFM®s patented connectors provide superior performance:

  • 100% sealed, no mess, no leaks
  • Seals tighter under pressure
  • No product build-up means better hygiene
  • No tools required for fitting
  • Snap-in design makes installation easy
  • Standardised connector sizes mean you need to keep less stock
