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.

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.
As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...
When an earthquake hits, the faster first responders can get to an impacted area, the more likely infrastructure--and lives--can be saved.
The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe.
Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation suggest that in recent decades, the current system has been...
Because they are regularly subjected to heavy vehicle traffic, emissions, moisture and salt, above- and underground parking garages, as well as bridges, frequently experience large areas of corrosion. Most inspection systems to date have only been capable of inspecting smaller surface areas.
From April 13 to April 17 at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, exhibit booth C16), engineers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP will be...
