BFM® Lipped Spigot Allows Easy Integration to Modular Tubing Systems

1 Aug 2023  |
The industry-leading BFM ® fitting flexible connector system can now be quickly incorporated into modular piping systems with the release of a range of their adaptor spigots with a small flange, or lip.

These new Lipped Spigots enable the BFM ® system to be installed without the need for welding as the 6mm rolled lip is compatible with most major quick-release/pull-ring type clamps.

It’s a welcome innovation that many manufacturers have been waiting for.

“We’ve often had customers who use modular piping systems ask for this option as their entire process line is based on these quick-release systems” said BFM ® fitting’s Technical Lead, Matthew Bailey.


“They wanted to use BFM ® fitting but previously had to adapt the spigots themselves to fit with their modular process line.”

Being able to provide spigots that don’t require welding on to an existing pipe gives customers future flexibility in terms of process line layout, access for cleaning and saves both time and money in terms of installation.

The new Lipped Spigot is also a great option for customers who, due to the nature of their product, may use aluminum or even plastic piping in their plant.

Because you simply can’t weld a spigot to these materials, a quick-release clamp system is the ideal solution,” said Matthew.

The Lipped Spigot option is available now in T304L stainless steel for diameters from 100mm (4”) up to 400mm (16”).
