Machinery used for oil and gas extraction, such as drilling equipment, is frequently exposed to dirt, saltwater, vibrations, extreme temperatures, mechanical stress and risk of explosion. Downtime is costly in these conditions, but energy chains from igus® offer the high performance needed to ensure continuous, failsafe operation
Complete systems from a single source for all moving machines such as pipe handling devices and top drives on this full automated land rig
Here, among other things, several RBR systems are used with energy chains in the joints of the robot, whereby the energy chains are responsible for the supply of energy, data and media. Technical development, which was very complex due to the extremely limited installation space, was carried out by theigus® project engineering team.
Even under extremely high loads and in the rough conditions on oil rigs, corrosion-resistant, lightweight energy chains of the E4.1 series are able to demonstrate their strengths.
In the case of cantilever skids, heavy-duty applications are a basic prerequisite and can be implemented with the E4.350 series in a cost-effective and weight-saving manner.
Our team of experienced field service technicians and inspectors work to increase the reliability and performance of e-chain® cable carrier applications by assisting with onsite installation, maintenance inspections and much more. Whether your application is a steel mill, port, or oil rig, igus® will deliver unmatched, continuous support.
