Video: e-loop – the safe alternative to service loops
Published on: 23rd August 2019
New cable carrier with the name “e-loop”.
Wind and weather, dirt, and rough handling: shore drilling rigs, the oil and gas industry, offshore, construction machinery and wind turbines are subject to gruelling conditions. These act on plant and the machine elements, and for this reason long-lasting components are called for. For a safe cable guidance of the top drive, igus has now developed a new energy supply called “e-loop”. This can replace high-maintenance service loops one-to-one. Harnessed and installed with highly flexible chainflex cables and a plastic rope with high tensile strength, the energy chain system ensures a long service life and a maintenance-free operation of plant and machines. In the video, Tim Schneebeck Industry Manager Offshore, Oil & Gas, explains how the e-loop is thoroughly tested under real conditions at the in-house igus test facility.
