Bridging sleeves are an important component in pipeline repair and maintenance. They are used when there is a deformation or other anomaly that prevents a traditional sleeve from fitting directly onto the parent pipe. In these cases, tight-fitting sleeves are installed on either side of the anomaly and a bridging sleeve covers both the tight-fitting sleeves and the anomaly itself. The thickness of the tight-fitting sleeves can be adjusted to match the offset of the anomaly. Bridging sleeves offer a reliable solution for pipelines with deformations or anomalies, ensuring proper repair and continued functionality of the pipeline system. It’s important to work with experienced professionals when installing bridging sleeves to ensure proper fit and function.
We make a variety of pipe sleeve sizes for both small and large pipelines.
