Calibrating sleeves

The SCITEQ stainless steel calibrating sleeve is a tool that optimizes plastic pipe production. The pipe diameter can be easily controlled and varied with a high degree of accuracy, all while maintaining roundness. By using the sleeve it is possible to increase both speed and efficiency without compromising on quality.

Product highlights

  • optimization of pipe production
  • significant raw material savings
  • all pressure classes / all wall thicknesses
  • robust construction up to Ø2500mm
  • easy adjustment during operation
  • high flexibility and accuracy
  • outer diameter adjustment


The Stainless steel calibrating sleeve ensures an excellent surface of the extruded plastic pipe. The sleeve is the most reliable and simplest tool on the market for calibrating plastic pipes online. One calibrating sleeve for one specific pipe diameter covers all wall thicknesses/pressure classes. Another special feature is the fact that conventional (fixed) calibrators can be converted into adjustable sleeves, thus obtaining all the advantages of the flexible sleeve solution.

The construction of the calibrating sleeves has been selected for corrosion resistance and durability. The idea behind the construction is to keep the construction as simple as possible to ensure durability and user-friendliness to the benefit of the end-user. The calibrating sleeve is manually operated by means of two point adjustment screws. Main parts of the sleeve are: housing, inlet (construction dependant on plastic pipe material), slotted calibration sleeve, articulated joints, connectors for cooling and two point adjustment
