LFR is a flexible connection equipped with a pressed on Tri-clamp coupling.
Pressing stainless steel AISI 316L / DIN 1.4404 ferrules onto the flexible connection / flexible sleeve makes the entire connection airtight and gives it a smooth flow profile.
The Tri-clamp coupling is assembled in the same way as originally intended, with a replaceable gasket and a Tri-Clamp for quick assembly.
LFR can be used with a 2 bolt clamp or hinged clamp, with wing nuts, hexagon nuts, tool release or lock nuts for employee safety in case of dangerous applications, for example when the flexible connections is close to a rotary valve, screw conveyor, butterfly valve, mill or other mechanical equipment.
The LFR flexible soft connections is a great addition to the already vast program of the modular Tri-clamp tubing system
The design of the method the flexible soft sleeve is pressed on to the Tri-clover Flanges, allows us to make the flexible sleeve in a great variety of materials such as thermoplastics, rubbers and silicones, in thicknesses of 0.3mm, 1.0mm, 2.0mm and even 3.0mm.
The use of a Gasket ring on the flange which is replaceable allows you to choose from a wide range of gasket materials for a variety of applications, even multi material gaskets such as PTFE with a Viton inner ring.
Pressing stainless steel tri-clamp flanges on to the flexible connection / flexible sleeve, makes the entire connection airtight and gives it a smooth flow profile.
There are many application options, including specific options for weighing and dosing techniques, Atex, foodstuffs, chemical, color and metal detection.
