GREEN & SMART from the pioneer of CERAMIC hoses
One of the pioneering Teknikum hose products is the flexible, but robust CERAMIC hose.

This solution is great, sustainable and long-life option, for slurry and very abrasive substances.

“I am really proud and excited. This is the beginning of new green era. This product, for example, uses 15 percent recycled material. It’s a great start. This is what we are going to do in the future”, Mr. Timo Kokkonen, Business Unit Director of Hoses of Teknikum Group presented the GREEN & SMART hose displayed at the Subcontracting fair in Finland.
SMART hoses to level up in process flow management

“Optionally the monitoring is available with single or 1-3 multilayer measurement with several cables built into the hose structure.” Mr. Kokkonen explains. “This system is great for those who want to level up with the planning of maintenance stops and get rid of too frequent ones.”
