igus® is made for offshore

Post navigation

We have returned to Aberdeen for Offshore Europe where we are showcasing our vast range of offshore solutions.

On our stand (5A21) we will be exhibiting our giant cable carrier, primarily developed for demanding applications on offshore oil-drilling platforms the carrier can withstand exposure to ice, wind, storms, salt water, oil and drilling mud.

E4 energy chains can also bear heavy loads and have easy-to-remove crossbars so cables and hoses can be replaced rapidly. The E4.350 can move nearly 15 m up and down, which guarantees any hydraulic hoses and cables are protected and guided.

Along with cable management systems we are showcasing the drylin® W linear guide system, which is ideal for harsh environments such as underwater or where chemicals are present. Available in 316 stainless steel the drylin® W is corrosion resistant in arduous environments; the guide system can also withstand extreme temperatures uo to 250 degrees C. Additional features include low noise and weight, as well as resistance to dirt.

The iglidur® X bearing material, also on show, is not just resistant to dirt, it is also chemical and petrochemical resistant. This material is ideal for use in pumps, replacing the traditional PTFE-coated bearings that can, in certain circumstances, contaminate the fuel or damage the shaft, ensuring a longer service life.

Throughout the show, our igus® UK team will be available on stand 5A21 to talk you through your bearing product and cable management system needs.
