Pneumatic Conveying in JACOB Tubing Systems

Steel Tubing for use in Pneumatic Conveying Systems

Pneumatic conveying, especially low-pressure conveying, is a go-to solution for the transportation of bulk goods, like powders or granules, across extensive distances.

Ensuring the tubing system's tightness is essential to prevent pressure drops that could lead to disruptions in raw material supply. Despite the lower pressure levels involved, the pneumatic conveying system needs to be stable and guarantee maximum reliability.

JACOB Tubing specializes in providing a plethora of steel and stainless steel products ideally suited for pneumatic conveying, especially low-pressure conveying. The extensive product range allows customers to adjust the pneumatic conveying system to fit within their existing production plant seamlessly This flexibility ensures straightforward subsequent installation of the pneumatic conveying system, eliminating any significant modifications to current systems.

Planning your low-pressure conveying system is easy with JACOB products. We provide CAD files for the majority of our products, so that you can design your conveying system precisely in advance.

Fast and flexible assembly of your low pressure conveying system

Fast and flexible assembly of your low pressure conveying system

The QUICK CONNECT pull-ring, a cornerstone of our pneumatic conveying equipment, offers easy installation and its high-quality design lends the tubing system excellent stability and tightness. Unlike traditional connections, this system can be rapidly dismantled, modified, and reassembled without compromising on quality.


Highest Standards for Bulk Goods in sensitive Industries

Only products that are suitable for transporting hygiene-sensitive products carry our FOOD GRADE label. Our FOOD GRADE line is a modular stainless steel tubing system consisting of over 3,000 products that meet the high requirements of the food industry. Our engineering experts have carefully tested all components coming into contact with food and optimised their design and material. Our FOOD GRADE product line fulfils both the European regulation EG1935/2004 and the American FDA food directive.

Maximum Safety for Bulk Goods Handling

DETECTABLE DESIGN provides an extra layer of safety for manufacturers in sectors dealing with sensitive goods. All products in this line can be traced with commercially available metal detectors and meet the requirements of EG 1935/2004 and the FDA. In case sealing rings or parts accidentally enter your production process, they can be instantly identified and removed using a metal detector.


Individual wear protection for low pressure conveying

There are many applications in industry and agriculture that cause excessive wear in tubing systems. DURABLE DESIGN by JACOB makes tube elements more resistant to hard and abrasive materials, reduces wear, and thus extends the lifetime of your tubing system.

Our new “Cryptane Blue” wear protection lining also ensures that the combined system of wear protection lining and tube body is electrostatically dissipative.


Why JACOB is the right partner for your low pressure conveying

In-house toolmaking

We need special tools to manufacture our products, and we build these ourselves in our tool shop in Porta Westfalica, Germany. This way, we always ensure that the optimal tools are available for production.

Modern machines

The precision and speed of machines cannot be replaced by “manpower”. That is why we rely on machine support, e.g. from a welding robot or our laser system. This allows us not only to produce large quantities, but also to ensure consistently good weld seams and dimensional accuracy.


When things get too difficult for our robots and machines, we rely on our experienced welders, who have been with us for an average of 16 years – and who have been able to gather a wealth of knowledge and experience over the years.

Quality management

In addition, our quality management department monitors the entire production process so that we can react quickly to problems. The team continuously analyses our processes and products and makes adjustments if necessary.
