Food Grade Highlights in Pipework Systems

At the POWTECH 2014 trade fair, Jacob Pipework Systems presented innovations which further expand the diversity of their serial and customised ranges.

The blue U-shaped seal is an innovative new development that expands the range of ring seals for pull-ring connections. A special feature is that the blue ring is detectable (see Fig. 1).

The blue one – U-shaped seal in hygiene colour design

The new metal detectable U-shaped seal from JACOB offers

greater protection against metal contaminants.

A JACOB two-way valve with a metal detector normally performs this task, which prevents parts of the ring from getting into the production process due, for instance, to faulty installation. The result is greater protection against product contamination. In the food industry, in particular, this is a frequently requested performance criterion. Blue stands optically for the internationally recognised hygiene colour. The detectable blue U-shaped seal is a patented innovation which is exclusively offered by JACOB PIPEWORK SYSTEMS. It comes with dual conformity with the European EC 1935/2004 and American FDA standards. In fact, Jacob is the first pipework system manufacturer to offer dual compliance.

The JACOB FOOD GRADE® range is now also complemented with a new multi-way distributor. This special stainless steel version also meets all food contact requirements for the two internationally most recognised conformities, right down to the last detail. A variety of connections as well as measurement and sensor systems also enhance the optimal conveyance of foodstuffs through the pipe system. Examples of customer requests include special dairy fittings, Tri clamp connections, and backup shut-off devices as well as pressure and temperature sensors, filling level indicators, humidity sensors and interior surveillance cameras (see Fig. 2).
