Pipe slide gates

Pipe regulator gates

Pipe slide gates from JACOB Pipework Systems, manually operated or with pneumatic control, are used to control the product flow in gravitational bulk goods transport.

The FOOD GRADE version in stainless steel is suitable for use in the food industry and conforms to EG 1935/2004 and FDA specifications.

The stainless steel pipe slide gate contains a silicone seal with DETECTABLE DESIGN. The seal contains small particles that can be tracked down by commercially available metal detectors and this way can be safely removed from the production flow.

JACOB pipe slide gates are available in stainless steel, galvanised and powder-coated up to a diameter of 300 mm. Custom-made products can also be manufactured on request.

The perfect solution for your gravitational bulk goods handling

Great tightness

Our pull-ring system with u-shaped seal provides minimum leakage enables not only dust extraction, but also condensate extraction.

Explosion protection

We offer explosion protection (ATEX) for throttle valves without a seal, pipe slide gates and outlet slide gates.

Maximum flexibility

We have a wide portfolio of standard products. Customized solutions are also possible.

Resistant materials

Thanks to a large selection of sealing materials with different resistances even highly aggressive substances can be extracted.


Pneumatically-operated pipe slide gates close automatically in the event of a power failure.


Slide plates on manually operated pipe slide gates can be fixed using a locking screw to prevent adjustment due to vibrations.

What do I have to consider when choosing products?

What materials, goods or residues should be extracted?
Important when selecting the materials of components, e.g. U-shaped seals or pipe elements.

What environment are we working in?
The choice of material depends on the ambient temperature and the installation location (indoor or outdoor).

Which regulations do you have to comply to?
JACOB offers products for sensitive goods, e.g. food or pharmaceuticals.

What pressure is used for extraction?
Depending on the pressure you have to consider another wall thickness.

How much volume has to be conveyed?
The extraction volume influences the diameter and indirectly also the type of connection.

Bulk Goods Handling

The transport of bulk goods places high demands on the pipe system. With the modular pipe system from JACOB, bulk goods of various shapes and properties can be transported. With more than 8,500 products, the system offers the necessary flexibility for use in numerous areas.

Case Study

Bühler’s Bakery Innovation Center (BIC) covers a complete range of bakery processes – from conception to production. Pipes and components from JACOB were used for bulk material handling and exhaust air aspiration. Because the systems in question are used for processing foodstuffs, all the components used are from the particularly high-quality FOOD GRADE line. These fulfil the requirements of EC 1935/2004 and the FDA. Also part of the system: the blue U­shaped seals, which are metal detectable thanks to incorporated metal particles.
