Quick-release flexible connection
For applications where the connection has to be disconnected often, Euro Manchetten has developed the Filcoflex quick-release flexible connection. These flexible connections are airtight, dustproof and leakproof. The smooth flow profile makes them ideal for hygienic applications and easy to clean. Due to all these properties, the flexible connections have a longer life span.
The installation of the Filcoflex flexible connections is easier and faster thanks to the Quick-Connect or Tri-Clamp clamping rings. If necessary for the safety of employees, tool-release, Bolt-Connect clamping rings can also be chosen. For example, if the flexible connection is placed close to a rotary feeder, screw conveyor, butterfly valve, mill or other mechanical equipment.
Filcoflex flexible connections come with two types of weld ferrules: Type 1 can be mounted on Jacob, KMH, NORO and S&W and type 2 on Tri-Clamp (LFR). The Jacob flexible connection is available with a pressed (FDM) or welded (FSC) flange.
|Type||Diameter||Minimum length||Flange lengtth|
|FDM||60 – 630 mm||100 mm||25 mm (optional)
55 mm (standard)
|FSC||60 – 630 mm||40 mm||5 mm (20 mm seamed end) (optional)
15 mm (30 mm seamed end) (standard)
|Tri-Clamp||60 – 315 mm||100 mm||28 mm|
The Jacob flexible connection is available with a pressed (FDM) or welded (FSC) flange. Both versions are suitable for connection to standard pipe systems from Jacob, KMH, NORO and S&W.
Type FDM consists of a flexible connection that is pressed onto the Jacob flanges in a special hydraulic press unit. As a result, the total connection is airtight and provided with a smooth flow profile. The Jacob coupling is originally equipped with a replaceable gasket and a Quick-Connect clamp for quick assembly.
With the FSC type, the flanges are welded or sewn into the flexible joint, depending on the material used. The Jacob connection is equipped with a Quick-Connect clamp for quick assembly, but without the use of gaskets.
The LFR is a flexible connection with a pressed Tri-Clamp coupling. As a result, the total connection is airtight and provided with a smooth flow profile. The Tri-Clamp coupling is originally equipped with a replaceable gasket and a Tri-Clamp for quick assembly.
The welded version makes it possible to weld brackets to the flanges for attaching electromagnets, sensors and proximity switches.
The LFR connection is an excellent addition to the already extensive range of the modular Tri-Clamp tube system.
The flanges are available in stainless steel 304 (1.4301) and stainless steel 316 (1.4571). The flexible part can be made of a selection of materials that are antistatic, electrostatically conductive and food safe.
Because many flexible connections are used in the food, feed or pharmaceutical industries, the flexible connections must meet the highest food safety requirements according to the FDA and ECC guidelines. In order to comply with these standards, all of our materials have been specially developed and extensively tested by accredited institutes.
Migration test reports can be provided on request. Pressure and explosion tests can be carried out on each flexible connection. Because we have our own test facilities and experts in the field of quality management, we can guarantee the highest quality.
In order to be able to assume full responsibility in the supply chain, we have a traceability programme for our materials. This allows us to guarantee that all materials have been extensively tested and comply with the quality marks.
