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.
e-chain for long travels
Large unsupported lengths possible
Safe cable guidance increases cable service life
Fast opening and closing
Easy assembly of the energy chain
For extremely heavy-duty applications
Flexible at low temperatures
Hydrolysis and microbe-resistant
Free from halogen, PVC and silicone
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.
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.
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.
AMORAS is a sludge drainage plant according to newest ecological findings. Pumps are guided through the basin of the sludge treatment plant via a bridge. Through an igus energy chain the hoses of the pumps are moved on the bridge, so that the pumps can reach every area of the four basins measuring 120,000m3 each. To realise the project, the operator worked closely with igus from the planning to realisation.
Originally, a cable drum was used to supply the longitudinal scraper in the secondary clarifier with energy. However, this led to a twisting movement of the cable, resulting in higher wear. Since chainflex cables and the flizz system with igus energy chain are being used, the plant operates without downtime - even at particularly low or high temperatures.
The Basic flizz® System guides cables safely along the primary clarifier on 53 metres. The energy chain in the housing is suitable for long travels and ensures a long service life of the cables. They are guided with a defined bend radius and the energy chain absorbs developing tensile forces. That way, cable-related downtimes are avoided.
The Wastewater Association Kempten has equipped the long scrapers basin of its sewage plant with a basic flizz® system with floating moving ends, so as to guide electric cables safely. The system guides the maintenance effort and at the same time ensures a long service life of the cables. On a travel measuring 65 metres, the energy chain contained in the system guides the cables.
