Transparent PVC tube is a PVC transparent non-toxic soft hose with an embedded spiral steel wire skeleton, which can be used at temperatures ranging from 0 to 65℃. This product has high elasticity, wear resistance, and excellent solvent resistance, and can be used in industries such as vacuum pump agricultural machinery, irrigation equipment, petrochemical equipment, plastic processing machinery, and food hygiene machinery. For those who may not be familiar with transparent PVC pipes, let me introduce them briefly below.
In general resin production, PVC resin has the lowest ethylene consumption and the lowest production cost. In addition, from the perspective of plastic products, PVC is compatible with various additives and can add a large amount of inexpensive fillers in the production of pipes, greatly reducing the production cost. Therefore, clear PVC pipes are widely used.
Compared with metal pipes, the energy consumption of steel per cubic meter produced and aluminum per cubic meter produced is 316KJ/m3 and 619KJ/m3, respectively, while the energy consumption of PVC per cubic meter produced is only 70KJ/m3, which is 4.5 times that of steel and 8.8 times that of aluminum. The processing energy consumption of producing PVC pipes is only one-third of that of metal pipes of the same caliber. At the same time, due to the smooth wall of PVC pipes, no corrosion and lumps, and high water delivery efficiency, using them for fluid transmission can save about 20% of electricity.
PVC pipes have good mechanical properties and excellent corrosion resistance. They are lightweight and easy to install during use, requiring no maintenance. However, steel and iron pipes used in public works must be coated with coatings frequently due to corrosion, leading to high maintenance costs. Generally, metal pipes used in buildings and public works need to be replaced after about 20 years, while PVC pipes with good processing performance have a service life of up to 50 years. Therefore, transparent PVC tubes are a low-cost, high-strength, and corrosion-resistant plastic product.
Generally speaking, in terms of sewage discharge, wastewater, and ventilation pipelines, using transparent PVC pipes can save installation and labor costs by 16%-37% compared to using cast iron pipes; when used as wire conduits, they can save 30%-33% compared to using metal wire casings; and when used as polyvinyl chloride pipes for hot and cold water, they can save 23%-44% compared to using copper pipes of the same size. Therefore, due to the advantages of PVC pipes, countries around the world are actively developing and promoting PVC pipe materials.
Among many PVC products, rigid PVC pipes and fittings are showing a rapid growth trend and are also the largest consumer of various plastic pipes. After years of promotion, especially with the support of relevant national policies, the production and application of PVC pipes have made significant progress, and PVC pipe production has accounted for more than 50% of total plastic pipe production, widely used in industries such as industry, construction, and agriculture.
