Modular pipework systems

There is a system behind what JACOB does: top quality standards, an outstanding innovative spirit, and an uncompromising choice of materials. Profound knowledge of the industry, good customer orientation, and expertise based on more than 95 years of experience. International customer support, excellent service and round-the-clock availability. The result is perfect modular pipework systems and satisfied customers throughout the world.

The Difference

Other pipe systems are specially produced for a particular 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 seal and joined together with a pull-ring. This system is fast, tight and flexible.

The Principle

The pipe components have a machine-lipped end, turned out at right angles. The U-shaped seal is fitted over one of these lipped ends. A pull-ring is then used to join the two pipe 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 supply pipes with a welded flange or a loose flange connection.


Anyone who thinks that this easy connection principle has any disadvantages compared to welded pipe systems is mistaken. These connections can be used at differential pressures of up to 0.5 bar and form a condensate leak-proof seal, making them ideally suited for extracting oil mist, for example. There are even special versions of JACOB pipework systems that are up to 10 bar shock explosion proof.

Flexible and Installation-friendly

Our pipe 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.

Delivery Capability

We currently store over 1,000,000 parts in our logistics centre. We have additional warehouses at our subsidiary companies and agencies and so offer you fast availability of €15,000,000 worth of parts throughout the world. Pipes with diameters of up to DN400 mm can normally be dispatched straight away from our logistics centre in Porta Westfalica.


We offer you a pipe 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 invest continually in new production technologies, machinery and processes to expand our quality leadership on an ongoing basis.
