PVC-O Technology

Double the meters of pipe with the same amount of raw material.

Highest quality pipes

Rollepaal is renowned for its cutting-edge technology in the production of PVC-O plastic pipes. Underpinning this reputation is our proprietary air-based in-line process known as RBlue. RBlue lines come in two basic configurations based on pipe diameter: 110mm to 400mm, and 315mm to 670mm. Both lines are capable of producing 10-25 bar pipe in Material Class 315 to 500. RBlue’s bi-axial stretching technology produces pipes that exceed the requirements under ISO 16422, AWWA C909 and other equivalent PVC-O standards. What’s more, this technology will enable you to deliver best-in-class socket quality and any pipe length required by your customers.

World leading performance

  • Highest output:With line speeds up to 300m/h and outputs up to 700kg/h, one RBlue line can replace 1900kg/h of UPVC production or 2000kg/h PE100 production.
  • Lowest overweight:With 5% overweight RBlue is the lowest in the industry.
  • Lowest scrap rate:Unlike batch production of PVC-O pipe where scrap is produced continuously throughout the process, with the continuous process of RBlue scrap is only produced during startup and shutdown.

Lowest production costs

RBlue PVC-O reduces material consumption by up to 64% compared to uPVC pressure pipe. Every RBlue line is equipped with wall thickness scanning technology that operates in conjunction with gravimetric material feeding to automatically reduce overweight without operator intervention. Together with low scrap rates and continuous production, the result is the lowest possible cost per meter.
