Pipe Sleeves Pricing and Costs
Find the best prices on pipe sleevesPipe sleeves pricing and costs depend on factors such as the material they are constructed of, their intended purpose and their size. The term "pipe sleeve" may refer to many different items, but in general anything that fits around a long cylindrical object may be called a pipe sleeve.
The following categories are some of the more common types of pipe covers:
- Plastic pipe sleeves for smoking pipes. These pipe sleeves slip over the stem end of a smoking pipe to protect it when it is not in use.
- A protective cylinder sleeve for pipes that carry fluid. These types of sleeves fit around water pipes where they come into contact with some abrasive material, such as concrete. Their intended purpose is to prevent the pipe from being abraded over time.
- Pipe sleeving that seals leaks in a pipe. This type of sleeve is used as a repair alternative to replacing an entire section of pipe. It is typically made of the same material as the pipe and carries a specific pressure rating, usually in pounds per square inch (psi).
