Bradford, PA - Dresser® announces the availability of its new Piping Specialties Style 220 low profile repair sleeve. This sleeve is the result of our unique manufacturing capabilities combined with an existing product, creating a repair solution that reduces labor and material costs in the field.
The Style 220 sleeve can be used on both gas and liquid transmission pipeline repairs allowing for full encirclement repair over past repairs or pipeline damage. Its innovative design replaces the wedding band oversleeve design, requiring 10 welds, with the Style 220 low profile sleeve requiring only four welds. This new sleeve does not require backing strips under longitudinal seams for further time and material savings.
"Our customers often make multiple repairs to the same pipeline. The Style 220 low profile repair sleeve will provide a significant pay back for them" stated Jolie Onuffer, Dresser Pipeline Solutions product marketing manager. "Customers who make single repairs on lines will also see significant time savings" she continued.
With only two halves requiring four welds, crews can install three times the number of repair sleeves per day, when compared to other repair methods.
