Modular system - openable and closable when necessary. Everything individually replaceable. Simple maintenance.
Product description
igus® iSet solutions for top drive systems
Dynamic loads due to e.g. vibrations as well as environmental influences are major challenges for energy chain systems and service loops on drilling rigs and especially for Top drive systems (also called top drive). The "heavy duty" energy chains from igus® are particularly suitable for the energy supply in top drives, which can impress compared to steel chains and service loops especially under the extreme conditions on a drilling rig.

In order to safely and reliably guide cables and hoses in hanging applications, igus e-loop® modular energy chain system developed the e-loop as an alternative to the service loop - ideal for multi-axis applications.

The e-loop® combines the advantages of a plastic energy chain with those of a high-strength pull rope. Inside the chain, the rope transfers the pull forces to the mounting brackets and the structure. This keeps the cables completely strain relieved. The modular e-chain® made of high-performance polymer always enforces a defined bend radius and easily copes with vibration and impacts. It is also a modular system that can be opened and closed as needed. All parts are individually replaceable. Easy maintenance.

Here you can find all recommended chainflex cables for the e-loop systems.

Why buy a complete set?
No need to spend lots of time looking for the right energy chain series and relevant accessories. We can assemble the complete energy chain set.  All important components are carefully selected and matched - from energy chains to mounting brackets.
