About
Product information

The FDM is a flexible connector that has metal flanges pressed onto the material. A loose gasket seal is then added, making the connection airtight and giving it a smooth flow profile.

The quick-connect coupling is extremely easy to fit. Pressure-resistance and the correct fitting are guaranteed by the use of clamping rings. The flexible connector uses a gasket ring.

The fixed pressed flanges are 55 mm high and 2 mm thick stainless steel (1.4301) as standard. The flanges are also available in a height of 25 mm. This enables us to achieve the shortest build-in length of 100 mm. The flexible connector is more flexible in longer build-in lengths. There is no maximum length. There are always options for other special versions and metals.

These are based on standard pipe systems from

  • Jacob
  • KMH
  • Noro
  • S&W

The flanges are available in:

  • Stainless steel AISI 304 / DIN 1.4301, glass bead blasted (standard)
  • Stainless steel AISI 304 / DIN 1.4301, Pickled and Passivated
  • Stainless steel AISI 316 Ti / DIN 1.4571, Pickled and Passivated
  • Mild Steel powder coated (green, grey, bleu)
  • Aluminum AlMg3

Lengths

The pressed on flanges have a 55 mm height and 2 mm thickness. This results in a recommended minimum length of the entire Flexible Connection of 160mm.                                                   

The flanges are also available in a height of 25 mm. This results in shortest build-in length of 100 mm. The flexible connector is more flexible in longer build-in lengths. There is no maximum length.

Pressing the flanges onto the flexible connector means that there is a greater possibility for the use of various flexible material types. You can also find more details on this in the technical specifications under ‘Downloads’.
