Superior Tire and Rubber Corp.’s SWEEPERTHANE™ Transition Sleeves for Street Sweepers utilizes polyurethane with high strength and high rebound to allow debris to bounce off instead of directly impacting the steel tube system. In addition to this, the slim design and smooth surface to the polyurethane sleeve provides better air flow and offers minimal drag in total air flow cross section. All of these features are going to help to lengthen your street sweeper's life, and have the option for the sleeves being attached to each other to add length for use in hooper tubes. SWEEPERTHANE™ Transition Sleeves are available in 10” and 12” tubes.


  • Change the Sleeve Not the Tube - 10 times more abrasion resistant than most steel transition tubes, reducing both downtime and cost required to replace or repair the expensive transition tube.

  • Sizes - Available to fit 10” and 12” tubes. Sleeves can be attached together to add length for use in hopper tubes.

  • US Patent# 7798177

Easy Installation:

First, slide the sleeve into the existing steel transition tube. It’s important that the ring sits on top, as seen in the second image.



How it should look.


Finally, add silicon caulking to the bottom of the transition sleeve to limit water and debris from getting behind the sleeve.
