Our Manufacturing Process

Tube manufacturing step 1

Stage 1 of 7

The extrusion process begins by feeding pellets of PVC compound into the hopper and heating them until they reach a melted state.

Tube manufacturing step 2

Step 2 of 7

The PVC compound is forced through a die that defines the shape and thickness of the tube.

Tube manufacturing step 3

Step 3 of 7

The extruded tube is rapidly cooled in a bath of chilled water. The cool water temperature helps to improve clarity.

Tube manufacturing step 4

Step 4 of 7

Reinforced polyester twine is now added before encapsulating the tube again with a protective outer coating.

Tube manufacturing step 5

Step 5 of 7

Rollers pull the tube through the entire process and cut it into required lengths.

Tube manufacturing step 6

Step 6 of 7

As the tube runs off it is inspected for potential defects and coiled onto reels for packing.

Tube manufacturing step 7

Step 7 of 7

Finally, each reel is measured to ensure the tube meets the required inner and outer diameters.
