Universal Earthing Bridge

Paul Boughton
Jacob Pipework Systems has increased its range of series-manufactured and special products. This includes the Jacob Earthing Bridge which is now being complemented with a new model – the Universal Earthing Bridge. This modification has an even wider field of application and replaces the earthing cable traditionally used for the electrostatic potential equalisation of pipe systems. Because the bridge is fixed to the Jacob pull-ring using simple screw-fixings, no welding work is required even for retrofitting existing systems.
The diversity of additional abrasion protection systems and moreover non-stick coatings is demonstrated by differently lined pipes and fittings. A wide variety of lining materials and thicknesses is available to suit the customer's requirements. Tried and tested PU linings or special brand-name linings with thicknesses of 2 to 8mm, which are used to line the inside of the pipes to maximise their service life, are a popular choice. These can also be provided to food-grade standard if required.
The new Jacob Hygiene Distributor finds its customers wherever the requirement for frequent cleaning of the inner surfaces necessitates quick and easy disassembly and reassembly of the parts. Thanks to the design of the distributor, this can be achieved even in its installed state. The entire shaft and flap components can be removed and refitted easily without using any tools at all.
