If you can change your old worn out pipeline liner with something more durable and reliable, like the modern plastic extrusion technology, then obviously you can minimize the leakage problems. These leakages are very common in our day-to-day lives and thus jeopardize our entire day's schedule.
What is plastic extrusion?
It is a process of filtering molten plastic by transferring to a die, which turns into pipe lines after solidification with specific cross sections. This process is used to create a wide variety of plastic items like your tooth brush, computer keyboard, mouse etc.
Certain pressure and abrasion goes on within the cavity of extruder, resulting in extra heat generation inside the pipeline liner, without any external heating facility. It has been observed that during the plastic extrusion process, there is a lot of pressure and resistance created within the HDPE pipeline liner channel, which may force the heaters to shut down automatically. Nowadays, people are using cooling fans to maintain the heat or keep it at the appropriate limit that would support the process. Hence, the temperature within the HDPE pipe line are controlled at a desired level.
When you will think of installing pipe line liners then make sure that you choose such a company which uses the most protective plastic extrusion method for HDPE pipeline liners and polyethylene liners. In other words, you should pick a company that is reputed for offering careful proper installation service, after thorough inception. The company should also offer on-time maintenance and also on-time rehabilitation for the entire network of liner pipe.
Different types Of Plastic Extrusion Process
1) Standard Plastic Extrusion - The plastic extrusion process begins when the plastics are in the granulated form. And when the process is over it is found in a consistent form with prominent cross sections. Here, the filtered molten plastics are transfered into the die and then it undergoes a cooling process. The product is then either cut into sections or wound up on a mandrel (a type of spindle).
2) Sheet Extrusion To get plain and even sheets of the materials some set of rollers are employed. At time two or more sheets of different compositions are rolled together to fuse it for some specific usage.
3) Blown Film Extrusion - The die develops a cylinder from the molten plastic, which is inflated with compressed air. Usually, thin pipes like straws, plastic shopping bags are created from the 'blown film extrusion' process.
4) Jacketing Extrusions - Through this process coating plastics are developed. This type of plastic is used to cover or coat a product like wires. It is used as an insulator over the metal wiring.
There are other types of plastic extrusions done too. But these were some very common ones. Most of the time we have faced issues not only at home but also at office, which has ruined the entire day. The updated technology applied in this process is not only to reinforce the current pipeline liners but also to improve the quality of other regular plastic products .
