Comprehensive knowledge of material leads to innovation
The experts at Jäger Gummi und Kunststoff GmbH are developing a combination of rubber and plastic parts that can be attached and detached using special tools without the need for electrical devices, while at the same time withstanding both the pressure that arises and UV radiation.
Three simple and simultaneously ingenious components make the difference:
- External plastic rotating rings with circumferential profiling provide the necessary attachment surface for the corresponding special tool, a precisely fitting torque wrench.
- The required compression of the sealing system is made possible by an inner sleeve with longitudinally running slots, as this contracts when the plastic ring is rotated.
- Finally, the internal elastomer sealing body is injected onto the inner sleeve, so that a reliable seal can be provided
The well-founded material development of the Jäger pipe connector enables both UV resistance and food-grade application. These properties are essential to allow the micro algae, which are also used as food and animal feed, to grow under intensive solar radiation.
Due to the material knowledge of Jäger Gummi und Kunststoff GmbH, an assembly of different components is created to achieve the set goal.
