Gasket Material Properties

Consistency of U-shaped Gaskets

Maximum tightness through an ideal profile

Our U-shaped gaskets combine an ideal profile with the perfect choice of materials.

The benefits:
• Tear-resistant, FOOD GRADE and resistant to many aggressive chemicals thanks to heat-sealing
• Maximum tightness through an ideal profile
• Resistant to a broad range of substances due to large selection of materials available
• Metal-detectable and FOOD GRADE due to special materials (DETECTABLE DESIGN line)

Seals

JACOB has U-shaped gaskets and ring seals in a variety of materials to obtain the best possible seal even with the loose flange system.

• Tear-resistant, FOOD GRADE and resistant to many aggressive chemicals due to heat-sealing
• Maximum tightness through an ideal profile
• Resistance to a broad range of substances due to large selection of materials available
• Metal-detectable and FOOD GRADE due to special materials (DETECTABLE DESIGN line)

Earthing Bridges

The innovative solution from JACOB for electrostatic grounding.

Suitable for retrofitting to our pull ring system without welding and drilling. The stainless steel earthing bridge can be used as an alternative to the grounding wire or the conductive EPDM U-shaped gasket.

Both versions of earthing bridge have been tested by DEKRA EXAM GmbH, a specialist unit for explosion protection.
