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 assembly
  • Complete system or individual components from batch size 1
  • Service life calculation
  • Low noise and low vibration
