Hygiene is of the utmost importance in all aspects of handling of milk products. Process and equipment design is required to be compliant with the most stringent industry food safety regulatory standards – USDA, 3A, and FDA.
Dairy-based powders are also flammable in suspension as a dust cloud, which places dairy plants at extremely high risk when it comes to the potential for secondary explosions.
Keeping all equipment and the flexible connections that transport the product clean and dust-free is essential for the safe, hygienic operation of a dairy processing plant.
This is where the BFM fitting connectors excel, being considered the new industry standard for dairy processors.
