5gallon barrel making machine

PC material gallon barrel

Production speed

We use the blow molding machine to make the PC barrel. The process is to heat PC particles to form tube preform, and then blow the tube preform into the barrel shape. The production speed of the PC barrel-making machine is not high, usually less than 100 barrels per hour.

The whole system of 5 gallon PC bottle blow molding machine includes: Blow molding machine, loader, Mold, Dryer, Mold temperature machine, Hopper, Crusher, Air compressor, and Air receiver.

Major electrical brand

Major electrical like PLC, HMI, PARISON PROGRAMMER, Linho recommend the international famous brand.

The whole system of 5 gallon PET bottle blowing machine includes Bottle blowing machine, Heater, Mold, High-pressure air compressor, Low-pressure air compressor (optional), Cooling dryer, Air filter, and chiller.

Production speed and degree of automation

The speed of semi-automatic 5 gallon PET bottle blowing machine: 90bottles per hour

The full-automatic 5 gallon PET bottle blowing machine speed: 1000-2000 bottles per hour.

For the full-automatic 5 gallon PET bottle blowing machine, it has servo type and cylinder type. Compared with the cylinder type, the servo type is energy-saving, efficient, and expensive.

Mold material: iron mold or aluminum mold. Iron mold has high strength, aluminum mold has low weight, and easy to replace the mold.
