TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES unveils eco-friendly tubes for industrial applications

06.11.2012
TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES, a specialist in flexible hoses for industry, will launch the innovative BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® tube, which is made from plastics of 100% biological origin and has technical qualities superior to tubes fabricated using petrochemical-industry products. The company will unveil the tube at the MIDEST trade show which will take place from 6 to 9 November in the Paris region of France.

TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES, a flexible-hose specialist that is based in France, will unveil a new tube for industry, the BBIO Universal TECALEMIT®. The tube, made from plastics of 100% biological origin, boasts technical qualities superior to those fabricated using materials from the petrochemical industry, but with the same production costs. BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® will be launched at MIDEST, a leading trade show for the industrial-subcontracting sector which will take place in the Paris region of France, from 6 to 9 November 2012.

The BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® tube is made from 100% polyamide Rilsan® T. The oil that is produced from grinding castor oil seeds is Rilsan® T's only component after both synthesis and polymerisation. This manufacturing process generates much less CO² and fewer greenhouse gases than in the production of polymers in the petrochemical industry.

In addition to this ecological benefit, the mechanical, physical and thermal advantages of TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES' tubes are also more significant than those fabricated using petrochemicals. This is because the company's tubes boast a higher operating pressure, improved flexibility and greater impact resistance than those made from traditional synthetic polymers.

Lightweight and impermeable, BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® tubes are resistant to abrasion and negative pressure, generating only very low pressure losses. Furthermore, the tubes are robust and therefore durable, which results in economic advantages for BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® users.

TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES tubes are also highly resistant to chemical agents, hydrocarbons and zinc chloride, even at low temperatures. A certain swelling may occur in aromatic hydrocarbons and alcohol, but this is without damage to the material.

The BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® tubes are rigorously calibrated and are available in various diameters, as well as in an assortment of colours. The tubes are produced in long lengths and are packed in sachets, boxes or reels of multiple 25-metre lengths.

About TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES

Since 1961, TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES has specialised in manufacturing pneumatic tubes for all engineering industries, providing solutions for transporting hydraulic fluids, as well as different kinds of connectivity.

TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES' products are supplied by a network of exclusive distributors that guarantee quality.

TECALEMIT FLEXIBLES will exhibit its new product, the BBIO Universal TECALEMIT® tube, at the MIDEST trade show for the industrial-subcontracting sector. The trade fair will take place at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre from 6 to 9 November 2012 in the Paris region (France).

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
