There are a wide range of applications in industry and agriculture that cause high wear in pipework systems. The DURABLE DESIGN wear protection program is an essential element in increasing the stability and thus the profitability of manufacturing and processing plants. DURABLE DESIGN from JACOB makes pipe components more resistant to hard and abrasive material, reduces wear and thus extends the life of your pipework system.
The wear protection is either glued or screwed inside the standard pipe elements and the material composition changes depending on the requirements – the material used has exactly the properties that are suited to your area of application.
Wear protection linings have an elastic, yet resistant structure. As a result, the impact energy is absorbed by deflection, and the service life is extended.
With DURABLE DESIGN, customers can choose between six different polyurethane-based linings depending on the area of application. JACOB offers standard components with diameter of DN150 mm to DN 350 mm for screwed wear protection and DN100 mm to 350 mm for glued wear protection.
Diameters larger than 350 mm are available on request, as are linings with ceramic, a non-stick coating such as PTFE or a coating of your choice. Alternatively, cast iron tube and hot-dip galvanized or powder-coated ranges, with a wall thickness of 3 mm, are available.
Small sparks in industrial processes are enough to trigger an explosion with serious consequences for employees and production facilities. They can occur when conveying various bulk materials. It is therefore even more important to divert dangerous charges and to exclude any ignition sources from your system.
It is important that the entire system is electrostatically conductive. Our new wear protection lining “Cryptane blue” fulfills this requirement and complements the extensive selection of wear protection products from JACOB. We are the first manufacturer to test our dissipative wear protection together with Dekra when assembled. In this way we ensure that not only the wear protection material, but the entire component is conductive.
Dissipative EPDM seals or the JACOB earthing bridge offer additional options for earthing tube parts. This can further reduce the risk of explosion and ensure greater safety for everyone.
With the JACOB pull-ring system, you can simply replace more vulnerable pipe parts with lined DURABLE DESIGN components. You can continue to use pull-rings and seals from the standard range and easily install the wear protection in new systems.
Elements with a lining have a narrower inner diameter. When transitioning from an unlined section and to guarantee an optimal product flow, we have an inlet piece (see drawing), in which the lining is chamfered and reinforced. It is recommended that this piece be installed with each lined component.
