Excellence in Manufacturing

MANUFACTURING – OUR MATERIAL

(PE) – Light, versatile synthetic resin made from the polymerization of ethylene. Polyethylene is a member of the important family of polyolefin resins. It is the most widely used plastic in the world, and is considered one of the safest forms of plastic.

West Coast Poly has a range of standard mould sizes from 320L to 50,000L. Once manufactured the tanks can then be fitted with nozzles and features to suit specific client requirements.

The tanks can be used for numerous applications and all types of processes including water, chemical and effluent, as well as potable water supply and material blending or mixing.

MATERIALS

THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS

West Coast Poly tanks are produced using the roto moulding system which allows one piece construction under controlled conditions with a material that is rugged, durable and shows outstanding chemical and environmental resistance.

The process is a four-stage system which is inherently efficient:

The polyethylene is tested for dry flow rate and bulk density before a set quantity is loaded into the mould. The mould is then heated while being subjected to multi-directional revolutions so that a specified wall thickness is achieved over the vessel wall. The material is taken to a specified temperature to ensure homogeneity before moving to the cooling phase. The mould continues to rotate during the cooling phase so that it retains its shape.

When the plastic has cooled sufficiently the finished part is removed from the mould and subjected to ultrasonic measurement and low temperature impact testing.
