You can’t make it. Because it has a complicated production process. Or you’ll waste a lot of time making a PVC Garden Hose.
PVC garden hose production processes
Firstly, the ingredients need to mash together. All kinds of raw materials must be accurately weighed and put into kneader in a certain order: PVC resin, plasticizer, stabilizer and lubricant. When the temperature reaches 100~110℃ the material can be discharged.
Secondly, you should prepare a granulator to extrude and granulate.This process to control the temperature, the highest point of the material temperature should be controlled at higher than the melting temperature of the material, lower than the extrusion molding temperature, that is, between 155~160℃.
Thirdly, you need to squeeze tube molding, you need to pay attention to squeeze tube molding slightly higher temperature, Generally speaking, the diaphaneity of pipe material and forming temperature are related, in certain temperature range, high temperature transparency is good, and vice versa. At the same time, traction speed and cooling speed will affect the transparency of the pipe. The traction speed is slightly larger, the cooling speed is fast, the transparency of the pipe is better, and draw and cool 10 to 15 percent faster than the extrusion speed. After molding, the PVC hose needs to be cooled. It will be sprayed with cold water at the nozzle die first, and then enter the water tank for cooling and molding.
Above are the PVC hose production processes, production process control of the process will have great influence on quality. There are many types of PVC hose like food grade and pharmaceutical grade. It is widely used in industry, agriculture, food, drug, construction, wind power and other industries.
