Sleeve-within-a-Sleeve™ Flexibles

Sometimes the simplest flexible connector idea is the most effective. And, no flexible connector design is simpler, more effective or easier to use than the sleeve-within-a-sleeve. This two-layer connector features a seamless inner sleeve which is joined to an outer sleeve at the top end. The bottom end of the inner sleeve hangs inside the inlet of the equipment being filled. This directs all product flow into the pipe thereby eliminating product buildup around the pipe. The outer sleeve clamps to the equipment pipes for a dust-free connection. Simple, effective, durable and customized to your specific requirements.
