Sewage plants must clean sewage reliably and hence work safely and without failure. Under continuous stress such as sun, wind, snow and ice. igus products are tested in our own laboratory with regard to their service life and are being used in hundreds of applications. This way, downtime is avoided, operating costs are reduced and time-consuming maintenance is decreased. Whether in a longitudinal scraper, sand or fat trap: igus offers cost-effective energy chains, cables and guide troughs specifically for sewage treatment, individually or as a ready-to-use complete system from stock. At igus, you can find tailored solutions for small sewage plants up to a large wastewater treatment plant.
Tech up, cost down - with even more durable energy chains, a compact sensor system for monitoring the service life of e-chains and a 36-month guarantee for complete basic flizz systems.
You can find more information on these and further product innovations at our 400m2 trade show stand. You can either explore it virtually on your own or together with our industry expert. Make an appointment now for a guided virtual tour with individual consultation:
▲ Tech up
20% to 30% larger sliding surfaces for longer service life in gliding operation compared to previous E2/000 series
Simplified installation of the interior separation system
▲ Tech up
Integrated offline service life monitoring for unsupported and roller chain applications
New sensors allow measurement of percentage pin/bore connection abrasion levels
Cost reduction through clear measurement of the service life of the product - avoidance of an early replacement of the e-chain system
▲ Tech up
Uninterrupted guide of power, data, liquids or air
Constant tensile strain on the cable
Cost-effective in case of repair, as individual components can be replaced
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 heaviest duty applications
Hydrolysis- and microbe-resistant
Free of halogen and PVC
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 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.
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.
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.
Before the flizz® was applied, a cable drum was used for the energy supply. However, the cable drum caused high wear of the cables. 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.
