How Long Do Flexible Connectors Last?

It’s a common question – and there isn’t an easy answer. 

The quality of materials used, and the fastening system will make a significant difference to the life of a connector in most applications.  There are also many other important factors like heat, movement and abrasion.

While no one can guarantee how long a flexible connector will last, by correctly installing a quality designed and manufactured product like BFM® fitting, you will have a more durable and effective flexible connector solution. 

Here we look at the key factors you need to consider when purchasing flexible connectors for your process lines.


The factors that affect the life of a connector are so varied that every application needs to be looked at individually.  When installing a BFM® fitting system, there are simple ways to minimize the effect of each on your connector to get the best long-term performance.
