Longer service life, lower costs, more safety

Sewage plants must clean sewage reliably and hence work safely and without failure. Under continuous stress such as sun, wind, snow and ice. igus products are tested in our own laboratory with regard to their service life and are being used in hundreds of applications.  This way, downtime is avoided, operating costs are reduced and time-consuming maintenance is decreased. Whether in a longitudinal scraper, sand or fat trap: igus offers cost-effective energy chains, cables and guide troughs specifically for sewage treatment, individually or as a ready-to-use complete system from stock. At igus, you can find tailored solutions for small sewage plants up to a large wastewater treatment plant.  

Your savings potentials with igus® energy chain systems and cables

  • No regular replacement of cables required
  • No separate drive for the motor cable drum – this saves material and energy
  • No slip ring body and regular exchange of contacts
  • No tangling or damage of cables
  • Cable length up to 50% shorter compared to festooning

Configure complete energy supply systems for short or long travels as well as for hanging applications. Enter the application and environmental parameters of your application and the energy chain configurator "e-chain expert" will suggest suitable solutions for your energy supply.

Checked in the igus® test laboratory for real use

Glimpse into test laboratory for cables and energy chainsTake a look at our chainflex® and e-chain® test laboratory, where tests are run with 10 billion cycles every year.


Tests in the cold chamberBoth energy chains and chainflex® cables are tested here under extreme conditions. That way, they can meet even the most demanding requirements when the time comes.


Application examples of our customers

Sewage treatment without downtime in the sewage plant Plauen

The Basic flizz® System guides cables safely along the primary clarifier on 53 metres. The energy chain in the housing is suitable for long travels and ensures a long service life of the cables. They are guided with a defined bend radius and the energy chain absorbs developing tensile forces. That way, cable-related downtimes are avoided.

Light energy chain for large project: AMORAS

AMORAS is a sludge drainage plant according to newest ecological findings. Pumps are guided through the basin of the sludge treatment plant via a bridge. Through an igus energy chain the hoses of the pumps are moved on the bridge, so that the pumps can reach every area of the four basins measuring 120,000m3 each. To realise the project, the operator worked closely with igus from the planning to realisation.

Long scrapers basin with more process reliability

The Wastewater Association Kempten has equipped the long scrapers basin of its sewage plant with a basic flizz® system with floating moving ends, so as to guide electric cables safely. The system guides the maintenance effort and at the same time ensures a long service life of the cables. On a travel measuring 65 metres, the energy chain contained in the system guides the cables.  

Smooth cable guidance since 2000 at the Aggerverband

Before the flizz® was applied, a cable drum was used for the energy supply. However, the cable drum caused high wear of the cables. Since chainflex® cables and the flizz® system with igus® energy chain are being used, the plant operates without downtime. Even at particularly low or high temperatures.
