igus tried and tested bearing products and cable management systems at Subsea Expo

At this year’s Subsea Expo, which is held at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre and runs from the 7th‑9th February, igus will showcase its vast range of products and systems for subsea applications.

Visitors to the stand (stand 105) will see the giant E4 energy chain that can withstand exposure to ice, wind, storms, salt water, oil and drilling mud. It can also bear heavy loads and features easy-to-remove crossbars so cables and hoses can be added or replaced quickly. Also suitable for vertical applications, the E4.350 can move nearly 15 m up and down, guiding and protecting any heavy hydraulic hoses and cables.

Along with cable management systems, igus will showcase the drylin W linear guide system, which is ideal for subsea environments. Available in 316 stainless steel, the guide system is corrosion resistant and can also withstand extreme temperatures as high as 250 degC. Additional features include low noise and weight, as well as resistance to the ingress of dirt. It can be delivered pre-assembled for easy installation.

The new iglidur X6 bearing material is not just resistant to the ingress of dirt, it is also chemical and petrochemical resistant. This material is ideal for use in pumps, replacing the traditional PTFE-coated bearings that can, in certain circumstances, contaminate the fuel or damage the shaft, ensuring a longer service life. It is also suitable for use in extreme operating temperatures from -100 to +250 degC.

Throughout the show, the igus team will be available on stand 105 to take visitors through the benefits and potential applications of their bearing products and cable management systems.
