Regularly, our offer is enhanced by new products or services in order to meet the new need of the armed.
Musthane designs and manufactures for the containment and/or the treatment of the environment pollution. Our systems, simple to use and quick to deploy, are used for example in oil spill situations or industrial accidents
Musthane designs and manufactures inflatable excavation shields. They are designed to provide safe working conditions for staff working in trenches.
Our equipments were used on the occasion of major disasters including the Erika or Prestige oil spills or Tsunamis. Our role is not restricted to the supply of standard products. Indeed, we often design products appropriate to extraordinary circumstances, as for the oil spill caused by the Prestige.
Equipment used in this industry includes: Anti-pollution barriers, Anti-flooding barriers, Anti-pollution plugging systems, Flexible tanks (to collect rainwater, slurry, liquid fertilizers, bioethanol…)
Musthane has a very wide range of products made of elastomer coated fabrics used in different industries: inflatable seals, anti-pollution plugs, water tanks and flexible tanks for fire fighting on industrial sites…
We either make components or production means for manufacturers eager to be able to develop more flexible and cost-effective solutions.
Our Design to Flexibility® offer can be applied in all industries with no restrictions.
Such industries include:
Building & mining : Flexible tanks for site facilities, Inflatable seals, Cushions used to extract stone blocks from quarries, Ballast bags for tests done on hoisting engines, Core formwork, Flexible cofferdam, tents, temporary track way and access road,
Nautical industry: Lifting bag (rescue), Antipollution systems (dams, floating tanks, pneumatic stoppers…) and oil spill control equipment, Fenders, Inflatable boat fenders, On-board water and fuel tanks, Specific seals.
Automotive & engineering industry: Flexible pneumatic jacks, Air bags for car seats, Shock & vibration absorbers, bladder surge vessel, Safety pneumatic plug, Water-tight membrane.
Musthane manufactures products facilitating the maintenance operations on nuclear sites(pneumatic stopper…), the storage of different king of liquid (flexible tanks for oil, water…). We supply also air cell rubber bag for high power transformer.
In the nuclear industry,Musthane delivers services at two levels: as designer of complete systems or as designer of components.
This was how Musthane was assigned complex projects involving the design and construction of a robot to push nuclear waste into underground galleries.
Sub-systems or components made by Musthane include: Waste and contaminated water storage pool, Zone plugging and isolation system (inflatable plug, mechanical plug…), Specific seals
Musthane manufactures oil volume variation compensation systems for electric transformers (bladders, rubber bags, air cells). We make many bespoke parts on the basis of formulations adjusted to conditions of use in this area. Our polymer formulations are reputed for giving the best performance in contact with oil transformers even in very cold conditions (-50°C).
Musthane manufactures mobile decontamination units. Our products allow civil defence units to be reactive and efficient: rapid erect tents, flexible tanks and pump units, lifting bags, inflatable stoppers, Helicopter landing mat, Temporary track way and access road…
Musthane makes equipment for teams in charge of emergency services to act more efficiently in case of disaster. Our variety of equipment items includes: Inflatable tents or modular tents (advanced medical post, CBRN decontamination tent…), Anti-pollution plugs., Anti-flooding equipments, Water storage tanks, Oil booms, Aircraft recovery lifting bags, Lifting bags, Water treatment and drinking water supply stations, Fuel supply stations.
Musthane manufactures aircraft refueling units. We have also filed a patent for a very new trackway for aircrafts exceeding the performances of the typical plastic or metallic mats available on the market.
Initial developments in this area were made for military air bases. This successful and recognized experience has made it possible to develop a full range of solutions and equipment for civil airports.
Musthane manufactures Aircraft refueling equipments, flexible tanks and custom made products made of elastomer or composite for the Aerospace industry: Flexible tanks, refueling equipments, Helicopter landing mat, inflatable bladders…
Design to Flexibility®
Musthane designs resilient structures to absorb the shocks and vibrations of on-board electronic devices. We design flexible composite and polymer structures to make components or sub-systems in aircrafts, such as flexible tanks. On-board flexible fuel bladders developed by Musthane are extraordinarily light and their constitutive elastomer offers better conductivity than competitors’ materials.
Not all of our creations are embedded parts. In fact, our role is sometimes limited to the design and manufacturing of tooling or equipment items used by the aeronautic industry to successfully complete its projects.
Design to Mobility®
This offer provides to our customers the opportunity of having planes fly throughout the world with light-weight and mobile fueling equipment. Our mobile equipment is used for refueling planes and helicopters on fixed bases or isolated areas which are difficult to reach for vehicles.
Our approach guaranties results to customers, even for completely novel designs.
Typical achievements include:
Flexible jacks containing a 200 bar pressure, High pressure inflatable plugs,Diaphragm closures & grout seals, Specific composite clamps, Pipe pinching system, Thermal insulation of umbilicals, Floats for barges, Setting drainage ditches in tidal range areas, Tripod support system, Buoyancy and Floats for cable-laying, Water-tight flexible door.
