The special features
For this project, it was extremely important to ensure that no aerosols or condensates could escape from the pipework system. JACOB’s longitudinally seam-welded pipes are perfect for this, as they have no potential leakage points. The connection system is equally important, of course. Here, the individual pipe elements are connected with U-shaped seals and pull-rings, which ensure optimum tightness. Another advantage for this project was that JACOB offers U-shaped seals made of different materials. In this case, the planners opted for seals made of NBR, which is resistant to oils and greases. The JACOB system not only met the stringent sealing requirements, but also brought a high level of flexibility to the project: thanks to JACOB’s modular design and more than 8,500 standard parts, the pipework system was adapted to suit the conditions on site and can be easily expanded as needed.
