Firing Industries Ltd. supplies tubing systems by Jacob, a leading manufacturer of these products for food processing and other sectors. This tubing works for bulk goods handling, dust extraction, exhaust air, low-pressure conveying, and other common applications. Various designs of tubes are available, like welded tubes, tubes with ports, and slip tubes. The last ones come in 11- and 19-gauge wall thickness, and they are recommended for connecting with ring seals, QUICK CONNECT pull rings, or pull rings with no sealant for 14- and 19-gauge tubes.
Protection from axial misalignment
Available in various lengths, slip tubes are always fitted with ring seals. They are inserted into welded tubes as far as required and then fixed into place with pull rings. The user should insert every Jacob slip tube a minimum of five centimetres into the straight tube, and the minimum length that is bridged is 45 millimetres. This is the simplest way to create a special length, without any sawing, welding, or lip flanging needed.
Jacob ring seals for slip tubes with a flange connection, designed to protect tubing systems from axial alignment, are also available from Firing Industries. Customers can use these ring seals with tubing systems from 11 to 19 gauge, in conjunction with Jacob slip tubes and flanges for the tubes. The admissible differential pressure is about 0.73 pounds per square inch.
Creating special lengths onsite within a modular pipework system is an easy process with Jacob slip tubes. A push-in pipe, supplied by the manufacturer in various standard lengths, is required, as are ring seals and QUICK CONNECT pull rings. The user should adjust the ring seal approximately according to the desired special length when assembling it with the pipe and push the pipe in at least 50 millimetres into the straight pipe. Then the push-in pipe can be adjusted by using one half of a two-part pull ring. Next, the other half of the pull ring should be connected and the screws should be tightened. The final result is a stable connection.
