Flexibility: Thin, flexible profile adjusts to pipe ovality for easy insertion and consistent weld & seal quality.
Sealing: Unique bore seal design accommodates pipe ID tolerance and utilizes sleeve flexibility to seal off weld zone.
Heat Resistance: Wide, thick insulation keeps weld heat from damaging protective coating. Permits a long internal pipe coating holdback and normal welding time.
Light Weight: Allows for easy handling and insertion.
Large Diameter Pipelines: Flexibility, seal design, and light weight makes FlexSleeve suitable for pipe up to 80” diameter.
Long Distance Pipelines: Fast and easy sleeve installation. Normal weld times. Functions with internal pipe alignment clamps for automatic welding.
