The Jacob System

Modular tubing systems

The JACOB System

There’s a system behind what JACOB does: top quality standards, an outstanding innovative spirit, and an uncompromising choice of materials. Profound knowledge of the industry, customer orientation and expertise based on more than 90 years experience. International customer support, excellent service and round-the-clock availability. The result is perfect modular tubing systems and satisfied customers throughout the world.

The Difference

Other tubing systems are specially produced for a project and welded together on site. JACOB has come up with a far more efficient way: Standard modular parts with lipped ends are fitted with a U-shaped gasket and joined together with a pull ring. This system is fast, tight, and flexible.

The Principle

The tubing components have a machine-lipped end turned out at right angles. The U-shaped gasket is fitted over one of these lipped ends. A pull ring is used to join the two tubing components together. This is either attached with two bolts – or if a QUICK CONNECT pull ring is used – in one easy movement. For special applications, JACOB also supplies its tubes with a welded flange or a loose flange connection.

Reliability

Anyone who thinks that this easy connection principle is second-rate compared to welded tubing systems is mistaken. These connections can be used at differential pressures of up to 7.25 psi and form a condensate leak-proof seal, making them ideally suited for extracting oil mist. There are even special versions of JACOB tubing systems that are up to 145.03 psi shock explosion proof.

The Diversity

JACOB components can be used to configure even the most complex tubing systems. Our range of products is comprised of over 8,000 standardized parts. If that’s not enough, we are pleased to manufacture customized parts for you, which will allow you, for example, to connect our tubing system to your existing systems and
machines.

Flexible and Installation Friendly

Our tubing system guarantees the utmost flexibility due to its modular design. Existing systems can be freely expanded and modified. Our pull ring system can be assembled and dismantled in a matter of seconds. This reduces downtime, saves assembly costs, and enables your installations to be cleaned efficiently.

Quality

We offer you a tubing system of the very highest quality. We develop and build key elements of our machinery, such as flanging machines, ourselves in order to guarantee the outstanding leak tightness and longevity of our products. We continually invest in new production technologies, machinery, and processes to expand our quality leadership on an ongoing basis.

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

U-Shaped Gaskets

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).

High-grade materials, perfect workmanship

Materials and special finishes

High-grade materials, perfect workmanship: This is the basis for the excellent quality of our products.

To prevent damage due to corrosion in mild steel, our components are protected to enable
them to withstand the general ambient conditions.

Materials and Special Finishes

Shock Explosion Proof

Explosion Safety and Electrostatic Grounding

JACOB tubing systems, if configured accordingly, are shock explosion proof to 43.51 psi or 145.03 psi overpressure. Particularly when conveying solids and gases that have a tendency to explode, this is an important safety factor. To ensure that this does not happen, JACOB tubing systems can be installed in such a way that they are completely electrostatically conductive.

Explosion Safety

Jacob Signet Food Grade EG/EC 1935/2004 plus FDA

FOOD GRADE LINE

JACOB sets standards in food safety. Our new FOOD GRADE line of products complies with both the European EC 1935/2004 regulations and the American FDA guidelines.

THE DETECTABLE DESIGN LINE

Foreign particles in a product are not acceptable in many industry sectors. JACOB has succeeded in incorporating minuscule particles in the compound that the gaskets or seals are made of.
