Castolin, the European leader in welding and brazing equipment, has sealed a historic partnership with the innovative SME Bulane.
A subsidiary of the international Messer group, Castolin will exclusively market mobile soldering stations, using the dyomix® technology developed by Bulane in scientific collaboration with the CNRS.
This revolutionary and environmentally friendly technology allows a high-temperature torch flame to be powered from water and electricity instead of the gases usually used, including acetylene. Bulane’s technology uses electrolysis to break down water into hydrogen and oxygen to produce a clean fuel.
No more need for fossil gases to make fire. The process has many advantages: the stations’ noise level is reduced by 25 decibels compared to a traditional system due to the absence of CO2, UV and harmful fumes. Earplugs and dark glasses are no longer necessary. The storage and transport of flammable gas cylinders under pressure is no longer necessary. As a result, costs and working conditions are significantly improved.
Implemented in light and mobile equipment, the size of cabin luggage, this major innovation is intended for professionals and craftsmen such as refrigeration engineers, heating engineers, kitchen technicians or plumbers, but also all professions using the flame in their daily work. This new market represents a potential of more than one million users worldwide.
Barely begun, the partnership between Castolin and Bulane has already been recognized by building professionals: the oxy-flame station dyomix® OHM 2.4 has just received the Gold Medal at the last Batimat 2017 Innovation Competition, in the category of Construction, Tooling and Equipment Equipment. This competition is the essential springboard for launching an innovation on the market.
The dyomix® Mobile technology will be unveiled exclusively on Castolin’s stand at Batimat, which will be held from 6 to 10 November 2017 in Paris Nord Villepinte.
