Distributes revolutionary fitting to replace unsanitary flex sleeves and hose clamps between processing equipment connections

http://www.powder-solutions.com - Powder-Solutions, Inc., will meet with leaders in the food bulk powder processing industry this week at Process Expo 2009. During this conference, Powder-Solutions will reveal how the USDA accepted/3A certified BFM® fitting will help eliminate cross-contamination concerns powder processing plants experience, particularly between equipment connections.

Bulk powder processing plants in the food industry are responsible for much of what we eat, as many food staples must pass through their doors en route to dinner tables across the country. With the more that is learned about food allergens, stemming particularly from grain and peanuts, powder plant sanitation has taken on far more importance while cross-contamination presents far greater risk.

Often to blame for sanitation concerns in food powder processing plants are the standard flex sleeves and hose clamps used as processing equipment connections. These antiquated connectors, prone to leakage and powder build-up, are among the chief culprits of cross-contamination risks in food powder plants.

"By replacing standard flex sleeves and hose clamps, the BFM® fitting eliminates most sanitation concerns in food powder processing plants," states Marv Deam, CEO of Powder-Solutions, Inc. "By ensuring powder does not leak or build up between connections, bulk powder processors can eliminate the root causes of cross-contamination."

Comprised of two basic elements, the USDA Accepted/3A Certified BFM® fitting consists of a flexible sleeve with integral top and bottom stainless steel snap bands, and two matched formed spigots (welded in place). The airtight connection of the BFM® sleeve ensures powdered food product is closely contained all throughout processing, and its crevice free interior surface eliminates the risk of trapped food particles.

"We are very pleased to be introducing the BFM® fitting to food industry leaders at this week's Process Expo," continues Deam. "We look forward to ensuring attendees leave armed with the ability to process pure, unadulterated food product."

Deam and Powder-Solutions, Inc. will be at Process Expo 2009 at Booth S-7243 through October 7th at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.
