Motion plastics for sewage treatment plants

Reliability for mechanical and biological sewage treatment plants

Sewage treatment plants pose a challenge for the components in use: they are in continuous operation, exposed to all sorts of weather conditions and come into contact with fluids, microbes, grease and dirt. Our energy chain systems and cables are designed in such a way that they operate reliably as long as possible under all imaginable conditions. Whether in a longitudinal scraper at the primary clarifier or the sand and fat trap: with the customised solutions, downtime is avoided, operating costs are reduced and time-consuming maintenance is decreased. We offer cost-effective energy chains, cables and guide troughs specifically for sewage treatment plants, individually or as a ready-to-use complete system from stock.

Would you like more information about parts used in the sewage treatment plants industry? Our experts will be happy to get in touch with you.

24/7 condition monitoring

Additional protection for the energy chain is provided by the smart plastics i.Sense EC.P system (EC=e-chain P=pull force), which continuously measures the e-chain's push/pull forces. If force thresholds are exceeded, the sensor reports the issue and switches off the system to prevent expensive damage to the system.
