What’s the main manufacturing processes of vacuum insulated stainless steel water bottle?

  • Manufacture double wall stainless steel insulated water bottle: “Outer wall & inner wall”, manufacture the shape and size as design drawing specs.
  • Copper Coating: copper coating on the inner wall which enhancing heat preservation performance
  • Welding: welding the mouth edge, bottom
  • Grinding: grinding the welding seam
  • Vacuum Process: create vacuum space between double wall, and test 100% vacuum insulation
  • Electrolysis: electrolysis process to create a inert layer on the surface of inner wall to make it good surface and not easy  to get rust.
  • Polishing:polishing the bottle flask to have good quality surface.
  • Vacuum Test: test vacuum insulation of stainless steel tumbler 100% again
  • Surface treatment: different options for surface treatment, such as spray painting, powder coating, water transfer etc.
  • Custom printing: custom printing with different method, such as pad printing, heat transfer printing, laser etching etc.
  • Inspection and assembly: inspection, asembly with lids, gasket, sleeve, gift box

Why working with us for your custom design vacuum insulated stainless steel water bottle projects?

how stainless steel water bottles are made

___________________________________________________________________________________________

Some characteristics of good quality stainless steel water bottles are:

  • Vacuum Seal Insulation – Nowadays, vacuum sealed bottles can keep liquids hot and cold. The highest quality bottles are all made with a vacuum seal, and if you plan on purchasing a stainless steel bottle, a vacuum seal is a must.
  • Proven Results For Maintaining Temperature – Many bottles claim to keep ice for more than 24 hours and liquids hot for more than 12 hours, but not many actually do.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Final Important facts to note about stainless steel water bottles:

  1. Made In China Does Not Necessarily Mean Low Quality – A popular stigma in american society is that products from China are low quality and break easily. Actually, many of the products we utilize every single day and rely on are made in China, and most are high quality. An example would be iPhones and Android Phones, as well as most of the steel we use to build the very buildings we live in and roads we drive on. When searching for stainless steel water bottles you will find most, if not all of them are constructed in China.
  2. Different Caps For Different Uses – Stainless steel bottles come with a variety of different lids and caps, all meant to function a certain way. If you are transporting soup or a very hot liquid within the bottle, then a screw top lid or stainless steel lid would be the most adequate to use. If you plan on using your bottle at the gym, outside, or while on the go, the best lids to use are straw lids or sport lids.
  3. BPA Free Bottles Only –  BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. Many companies still use BPA to produce different plastic products and items. many stainless steel bottle manufacturers are 100% BPA Free, but not all are. Before you purchase a stainless steel water bottle, make sure that there is no BPA present in the bottle.

Raw Materials

Lid/Cap: Plastic “polypropylene or Tritan”, usually is polypropylene, they are both food frade, FDA comply, polypropylene is much cheaper and easier to be manufactured.

Gaskt: silicone rubber

how to manufacture vacuum insulated bottle flask tumbler mug

Bottle Flask Body: Stainless steel “SUS304 or SUS201”, usually is SUS 304 “18-8”, SUS201 is easier to get rust and not food grade, but much cheaper, some low end brands or promotion market is using SUS201 to make stainless steel bottles

 

The Manufacturing Process

  11. Inspection and assembly: inspection, asembly with lids, gasket, sleeve, gift box

The top lid/cap

How to manufacture vacuum insulated bottle flask tumbler mugHow to manufacture vacuum insulated bottle flask tumbler mug

  1. the top lid/cap of bottle flask is made with plastic material usually, and it is made with injection machine
  2. with stainless steel material made top lid/cap, it is manufacture the lid then welding the top cover with base lid together, and grinding the welding seam and polishing.
  3. with stainless steel material made base lid and plastic made top cover, put stainless steel base lid on injection mould then process injection to have combined stainless steel/plastic lid/cap

Quality Control:

The most important of stainless steel vacuum insulated bottle flask is vacuum insulation, that’s why we have double “vacuum insulation test” during the whole manufacturing process.

The raw material cost is very important for high end quality stainless steel bottles, we recommend 18-8 Food grade stainless steel.

The polishing quality is very important if no any other surface treatment, our company set full inspection after polising process.

Different surface treatment has different features, we can choose the best way to meet the bottle design and market needs.

Final inspection of your stainless steel vacuum insulated bottle flask is during/after the assembly/packing line.

The Features:

how to manufacture vacuum insulated bottle flask tumbler mugThe stainless steel vacuum insulated bottle flask keeps hot liquid 12 Hours longer and cold liquid 24 Hours, it based on the manufacturing process and quality control, also affect by the bottle designs.

 

With cold water drinking, you don’t need to worry about BPA which only appear when with hot water inside your drinking bottle veseels, when you considering drinking hot water, you need to know what materials your stainless steel water bottle made, choose BPA Free material made bottle products in the market.
