HDPE pipes have become an essential part of the infrastructure of many things. The majority of HDPE pipes are used in water supply, gas supply, sewage, drainage, but there are other examples such as the HDPE coil pipes which are used in underground infrastructure because of their durability and high density. But how are these pipes made and what exactly is done to bring these pipes to the customers? Today we’ll answer these questions by breaking down the manufacturing process which is followed by almost all the HDPE pipe manufacturers in India.
ACCUMULATION OF RAW MATERIAL
The raw material forms the most integral part of the manufacturing process because without the inclusion and availability of raw material, it would be impossible for a manufacturer to produce pipes. The raw material which goes into making an HDPE pipe is HDPE granules and carbon black. The HDPE granules are small chunks of high density polyethylene which are blended with carbon black in a high temperature container.
MELTING THE RAW MATERIAL
Before the pipe is brought into shape by using the extrusion machine and further processes, the raw material is kept in a container and subjected to a high temperature wherein it is held until it melts.
EXTRUSION AND DYING
This is where things begin to get interesting. HDPE pipe manufacturers in India make use of different types of extrusion machines with the help of which they shape the melted raw material into a pipe. Apart from that, dying of the pipe is also carried out during the same process.

VACUUM AND PRESSURE CALIBRATION
Among the other important processes, the pipe has to go through this process as well. The vacuum and pressure calibration of the pipe allows the HDPE pipe manufacturers to know what kind of pressure can the pipe withstand.
It is obvious that the HDPE coil pipes are going to be hot as hell when they come out of the above-mentioned processes. That is why, it is important that they undergo a cooling bath process which makes them go through a uniformly distributed water shower so that every curve of the pipe is covered well.
HAUL OFF UNIT
It is the second last stage of manufacturing the pipe and after the pipe that has been cooled down undergoes this stage, it qualifies for the final stage of the process which is known as the cutting unit.
The pipes are given a distinct length by cutting them off. Most of the pipes are usually 3 meters, 6 meters and 9 meters long, but in the case of HDPE pipes, this length is usually higher.
HDPE Pipe manufacturers follow the above-mentioned steps with great sincerity so that they can provide the best of their products to their clients.
