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: Viaducts with wind turbines, the new renewable energy source

Wind turbines could be installed under some of the biggest bridges on the road network to produce electricity. So it is confirmed by calculations carried out by a European researchers team, that have taken a viaduct in the Canary Islands as a reference. This concept could be applied in heavily built-up territories or natural areas with new constructions limitations.

The Juncal Viaduct, in Gran Canaria, has served as a reference for Spanish and British researchers to verify that the wind blowing between the pillars on this...
