A flexible connection, inflatable seal or sleeve is required to connect most these components and machinery together due to factors such as vibrations or heat expansion. Many installations and equipment are existing and have been in use for many years and therefor require tailor made solutions. Filcoflex custom makes flexible connections to customer specification with a short lead time in single quantities. Filcoflex designs their products to performance excellent in the food processing industry and bulk material handling with minimal modifications the existing components, equipment, and machinery. The basic design idea is to try and make a flexible connection, inflatable seal, gasket, or sleeve to suit the existing or newly designed equipment without the need for any special or expensive ancillary components or accessories.
To connect the custom-made products of Filcoflex, ancillary components are required. Most these ancillary components are standardized accessories commonly used in the food processing industry and bulk material handling.
