Energy chain in open-air storage facility for alumina production
Design and installation of a roller energy chain for outdoor use on a bauxite stockpile - an environment with extremely harsh ambient conditions.
Rol e-chain® - Rolls instead of glide - Conventionally designed e-chains® are used for long travels in the gliding mode. The reason for developing the igus® Rol e-chain® was the necessity to extend the technical limits of this operating mode. The requirements for e-chains® for long travels have increased steadily in recent years. Travels of 800 meters also pose new challenges in crane building such as high travel speeds with extreme cable loads. Please call us if you have opted for this product. We'll help you in the project planning!
The igus® Rol e-chain® is predestined for applications in which long travels at high speeds must be implemented. This is the case for instance in photo-finish cameras or in materials handling systems. Costs can be saved even in slower applications in the crane sector or in shunting facilities by the low friction coefficients of the system, as the dimensioning of the drives can turn out to be considerably smaller.
