PVC Pipe Making Process

To make PVC pipe, you have to follow various steps. Here we are giving you information about the process of making it with all the steps –

  1. Plasticizers:- Common plasticizers used for manufacturing PVC pipes are DPO, DIOP, DBP, DOA, DEP, Rayoplast, Paraplex etc.
  2. Stabilizers: Common stabilizers for the manufacture of PVC pipes include lead, barium, cadmium, tin, stearate, etc.
  3. Lubricants:- The widely used lubricants in the manufacture of PVC pipes are buty-stearate, glycerol mono-stearate, epoxidized monoester of oleic acid, stearic acid etc.
  4. Fillers :- Along with this fillers can also be used to manufacture special quality PVC pipes. For example, calcined clay is used to improve the electrical properties of cable compounds. In extrusion operation, PVC resin is mixed with plasticizers, stabilizers, lubricants and fillers in a high-speed mixer. So that process improvement and stability can be improved. After this the mixed PVC resin is poured into the double screw extruder and the diameter of the pipe to be made is die-fitted there. This composite PVC is then passed through a heated chamber and then it melts due to temperature and compression of the screw. And it changes to the size of the pipe to be made. Then after taking it out, marking is done on the pipe.
  5. Sizing: After taking out the pipe from the extruder, it is cooled in the sizing operation. Basically two types of sizing are used for this. They are pressure sizing and vacuum sizing etc.
  6. Traction :- The next operation required after sizing is traction. Tube traction unit is required for continuous movement of extruded pipes by extruder.
  7. Cutting :- After this the last operation is cutting. There are basically 2 techniques for cutting Rigid PVC Pipes. Which are manual and automatic. Pipe cutting is done through this. The pipes are then tested for the ISI mark, and ready to be supplied.
