Reliability for mechanical and biological sewage treatment

Sewage plants pose a challenge for the components in use: they are in continuous operation, exposed to all sorts of weather conditions and come into contact with fluids, microbes, grease and dirt. Our energy chain systems and cables are designed in such a way that they operate reliably as long as possible under all imaginable conditions. Whether in a longitudinal scraper at the primary clarifier or the sand and fat trap: with the customised solutions, downtime is avoided, operating costs are reduced and time-consuming maintenance is decreased. We offer cost-effective energy chains, cables and guide troughs specifically for sewage treatment, individually or as a ready-to-use complete system from stock.

Advantages of igus energy chains and cables:

  • Cost-effective
  • Save installation space and weight
  • Maintenance-free for 24/7 use
  • Fast delivery
  • Easy installation
  • Complete system or individual components with no minimum order quantity
  • Online service life determination
  • Low noise and low vibration

24/7 condition monitoring

Additional protection for the energy chain is provided by the smart plastics i.Sense EC.P system (EC=e-chain P=pull force), which continuously measures the e-chain's push/pull forces. If force thresholds are exceeded, the sensor reports the issue and switches off the system to prevent expensive damage to the system.

Energy chain configurator

Configure complete energy supply systems for short or long travels as well as for hanging applications. Enter the application and environmental parameters of your application and the energy chain configurator "e-chain expert" will suggest suitable solutions for your energy supply.


The huge motion plastics sample box

Trying things out made easy: with the igus corner, you always have the most recent motion plastics that are suitable for your individual industry to hand. 
 
We will bring the display to you, assemble it upon request, and fill the compartments with the products of your choice. Or you can set it up yourself. As a permanent exhibition or for a limited period of time.

Tested in the test laboratory for use in the real world

Take a look at our test laboratory for chainflex® cables and e-chains®, where tests are run for ten billion cycles every year.
Tests in the cold chamber: here, both e-chains and chainflex cables are exposed to extreme conditions, so that they can meet even the most demanding requirements when the time comes.
