Hygiene is of the utmost importance in all aspects of handling and processing of infant formula with the risk of microbial contamination having serious consequences for the quality and safety of the end product.
Contamination of powders is avoided by totally enclosed and sealed designs that minimize the need for human intervention during operation. Equipment must be designed with quick take apart features, allowing for easy cleaning and inspection which includes flexible connectors.
This is where BFM fitting connectors excel with their unique snap-in design that seals from the inside and is quick and easy to remove and replace.
This is why the world’s largest infant formula manufacturers have standardized on using BFM fittings.
