1.

SCOPE
This standard specifies the minimum requirements for the design, materials and manufacture of full-encirclement,
welded, split sleeves for gas piping. The sleeves are intended for reinforcment or leak repair of welded joints or
mechanical couplings in existing piping.

2.

REFERENCED CODES AND STANDARDS


49 CFR Part 192 (DOT Part 192)
American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)
Manufacturer's Standardization Society (MSS) SP-25 and SP-75

3.

DESIGN
3.1

Each sleeve shall consist of two 180 halves which are to be field welded in place over the specified type
of pipe joint.

3.2

Unless specified otherwise, the sleeves shall be designed by the Manufacturer using material having a
combination of wall thickness and yield strength to meet the specified design pressure based on the
following pipe design formula in DOT Part 192, 192.105. As an option, the Purchaser may specify the
minimum wall thickness and specified minimum yield strength of the sleeve material and/or the
Manufacturer and catalog number.

Design pressure (psig) to be specified by Purchaser,


Outside diameter (inches) in the area of highest hoop stress (normally the largest diameter),
Specified minimum yield strength (psi) of sleeve material,
Wall thickness (inches) in the area of highest hoop stress,
Longitudinal joint efficiency will be 1.0,
Design factor to be specified by Purchaser (0.4 to 0.72),

3.3

For sleeve designs based on the formula above, the entire sleeve, including areas of transition and reduced
diameter, shall be designed and manufactured so as to have an equivalent pressure containing capability.

3.4

The ends of all sleeves shall have a nominal inside diameter which is the same as the nominal outside
diameter of the pipe size specified.

3.5

The body of the sleeve shall have a diameter and shape suitable for the specified purpose of the sleeve
which may include a formed groove suitable for a circumferential welded butt joint in pipe or an enlarged
body suitable for enclosure of a mechanical joint of a specified type such as a Dresser coupling.

3.6

The length of the sleeve shall be the manufacturer's standard unless specified otherwise.

MATERIALS
4.1

Sleeves shall be fabricated from steel pipe or plate having a specified minimum yield strength (SMYS) of
35,000 psi or greater. The steel used shall be of suitable quality for field welding using a standard welding
process and procedure.

4.2

If pipe is used, it shall be manufactured in accordance with a specification listed in DOT Part 192 and
shall not have been subjected to cold expansion to achieve the SMYS. If plate is used, it shall be
manufactured in accordance with an ASTM specification and be a plate intended for use in fabrication of
pressure vessels.

4.3

Sleeves shall not contain a longitudinal seam in either half.

4.4

Chemical composition of the materials shall be determined in accordance with MSS SP-75, Section 7.

4.5

Physical properties of the materials shall be determined in accordance with MSS SP-75, Section 8, before
or after the manufacturing process; however if determined before manufacturing, the physical properties
shall not be altered detrimentally by the manufacturing process.

MANUFACTURE
5.1

The manufacture of sleeves shall be in accordance with MSS SP-75, Section 14, except that fabrication by
welding shall not be permitted.

5.2

Heat treatment shall be performed in accordance with MSS SP-75, Section 9, as necessary to restore or
obtain the required physical properties.

5.3

The edges of both sleeves along the longitudinal seams shall be prepared for welding with a standard 30
or 37-1/2 bevel. The end circumferential edges shall be square.

MARKING
6.1

All sleeves shall be legibly marked in a manner and location consistent with the requirements of MSS SP25.

6.2

Markings shall include Purchaser's purchase order and item number, nominal size of pipe for which
sleeve is to be applied, material manufacturing specification and grade and wall thickness.
