Energy chain cable carrier solutions for the oil and gas industry

High-strength plastic cable carriers for extreme environments

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

Your benefits:

  • Suitable for offshore applications and heavy loads
  • Weight saving up to 70% compared to steel chains
  • Cable- and hose-friendly due to plastic interior separation system - No cable/hose damage
  • 100% corrosion-resistant
  • Modular and adaptable to the respective application
  • Easy assembly and maintenance
  • Cost-effective and economical solutions

Application examples for our customers

Installation times and maintenance work reduced on fully automated land rig

Complete systems from a single source for all moving machines such as pipe handling devices and top drives on this full automated land rig

Rack & pinion top drives

Cost-effective complete systems shorten and facilitate installation

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.

Drilling platform

Successful for many years in offshore use

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.

Pipe handling

Weight-saving and cost-effective

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.
