Shrink sleeve

Insulation shells

Tissue
Flexible Insulation shells
Mastic tape

Important:
Avoid heating directly on creases, otherwise it may
cause damages on the surface of the sleeve.
Avoid heating in between the sleeve and the
casing, otherwise the sleeve may be damaged
permanently.
Use burner head 51 mm for sleeves up to
200 mm. For larger sleeves use burner head 63
mm.

3. Clean all surfaces in the mounting area.

Coupling

1. Cut off the insulation with suitable stripping tool.


L depends on the type of coupling. Install the
coupling as shown in the relevant instructions.

4. Shorten the insulation shells to size, so that they


fit tightly between the casing pipes. As for
couplings, it may prove necessary to cut away
insulation foam from the coupling.

2. Place the shrink sleeve with packing on one of


the pipes, before the carrier pipes are joined.

Fitting Instructions

5. Fit the insulation shells tightly between the casing


pipes, using adhesive tape if necessary. Reduction:
See at the end of this instruction. All surfaces must
be CLEAN and DRY. Activate the casing pipes with
abrasive cloth grain size 80 at least 150 mm from
both casing ends.

8. Remove the protective foil from one side of the


mastic tape and mount them on the casing pipes
approx. 30 mm within the markings. Press the tape
ends together. Remove the rest of the protective foil
from the mastic tape. Centre the shrink sleeve
between the markings.

6. Activate the casing pipes with a gas burner at


least 150 mm from both casing ends, until the
surface has a matt, silky look.

9. Shrink the sleeve from the middle towards the


ends Avoid heating directly on the casing.

7. Remove the packing from the shrink sleeve.


Check that the sleeve is CLEAN and DRY inside
and out. Centre the shrink sleeve over the joint and
mark the position. Pull the shrink sleeve away.

Reduction
When applied as reduction, the sleeve may shrink
up to 2 dimensions more than the minimum
diameter listed. (Example: FX dimension 125-160
mm is able to shrink to dimension 90 mm).
Cu-Flex can only be reduced by one offset.
Max. covering length is 300 mm.

10. Shrink until the expansion marks have


disappeared in particular over the mastic tape and
the sleeve end forms an almost straight edge all the
way around.

11. The joint is complete.

Use an insulation shell, which fits the largest pipe


end. Bevel the insulation shell so that the insulation
obtains a plane shape, see figure.

13. 2-3 offsets.


Use 2 different insulation shells, which fit the pipe
ends in question. Bevel the inside of the smaller
insulation shell, so that it is placed planely against
the reduction and the carrier pipe. Bevel the outside
of the larger insulation shell to obtain a plane shape
of the insulation, see figure. Fasten the insulation
shells with canvas tape.
