Outdoor processing applications are exposed to considerable environmental stresses. Facility and maintenance managers in these plants need to ensure their processes can operate reliably with constant exposure to UV, temperature fluctuations and the effects of wind and rain.
Traditional hose clamp flexible connectors can break down and leak with exposure to harsh outdoor elements over a short period of time, compromising service life.
Connectors manufactured from Seeflex, a strong, flexible, ether-based urethane exclusive to BFM® fitting, has been proven for outdoor use in both sun and water exposure. Although extended exposure to UV can cause discoloration, the Seelfex material still retains its high strength and flexibility.
