BF Series (Ball Face) Couplings

Low pressure, clean break coupling

The BF Series (ball face) couplings were developed primarily for chemical industry applications. They are a high clean break coupling which can be used for both non-lubricating media, such as demineralized water, process liquids, "dry" gases and solvents or lubricating media, such as oils or soap solutions. Design features provide for easily cleanable surfaces.

The BF Series couplings are available in small bore sizes (above left) of 5mm, 9mm and 12mm and larger bore sizes (above right) of 25mm and 50mm. Made of stainless steel (other materials available), the BF Series connect/disconnect process is totally squirt-free, allowing minimal spillage or air inclusion.

Features:

  • clean break/squirt free during connection/disconnection with minimal spillage and air inclusion
  • automatic locking with simple "push to connect" operation
  • compatible with both non-lubricating and lubricating media
  • easy cleanable surfaces
  • BF-025/BF-050 only- lever controlled valve operation
  • BF-025/BF-050 only- mechanical locking is possible with closed valves only
