motion plastics for
composting and waste incineration plants

Humidity, dirt, swarf, heat and cold: these are just some of the many environmental and weathering effects in which composting and waste incineration plants have to function reliably to avoid expensive machine downtime. For composting, fail-safe components are indispensable to ensure that the complicated, self-contained composting process is not disturbed. The aim is to produce high-quality compost from biodegradable waste so that it can be used as a fully effective fertiliser in gardening and farming. In heavy-duty areas, steel systems are increasingly being replaced with igus products due to their exceptional suitability.

Benefits of igus products:

  • Cost-effective
  • Save installation space and weight
  • Maintenance-free for 24/7 use
  • Fast delivery
  • Easy installation
  • Complete system or individual components with no minimum order quantity
  • Service life calculation
  • Quiet, smooth operation

Why are e-chains ideal for heavy-duty use?

 

  • They are corrosion-free
  • Often more cost-effective than metal solutions, and have a modular design
  • Long service life with extremely low maintenance
  • Resistant to dirt, chemicals and high temperatures
  • Lightweight with high stability
See in the video, how polymer energy chains withstand heaviest-duty applications.
