Treotham releases offshore approved Chainflex cable carriers

Treotham has introduced a new range of cable carriers from igus approved for use in offshore and mining applications.

The new igus Chainflex cable carrier range is GL-certified, and is specifically developed for some of the most demanding applications where electrical cables and large hydraulic hoses must be guided and protected on mission critical equipment.

This latest generation of igus’ proven heavy duty cable management systems has a 350mm interior link height along with attributes such as excellent strength to weight ratio as well as resistance to grease, oil, seawater, dirt, debris, sun and temperature, making the Chainflex cable carrier range an excellent alternative to traditional heavy-duty steel carriers.

Part of igus’ proven E4 line of heavy-duty plastic cable carriers, the new Chainflex offshore cable carriers incorporate all the existing features and benefits such as low noise, modularity, and ruggedness.

New design and performance improvements in the new generation Chainflex offshore cable carriers include a 33% increase in the unsupported span capabilities of the energy chain; a 133% increase in tensile strength; enlarged wear surfaces for extending life; noise dampening features; and new accessories including the Push Pull Detection System (P.P.D.S.), which monitors forces on the chain during operation, offering a complete solution for machine builders.

igus can also provide turnkey ReadyChain solutions, fully harnessed to include Energy Chain cable carriers, Chainflex GL certified continuous flex cables, hoses, connectors and accessories, ready to plug in right out of the box.
