The 1,000th ship-to-shore crane with safe energy chain system

The 1,000th ship-to-shore crane with safe energy chain system
igus has announced it has fitted its 1,000th ship-to-shore (STS) crane with an energy chain system. For these long travels, rolling energy chains (rol e-chains) are used to maximise service life, while minimising drive power. They can also be combined with the new isense modules to measure the movement and wear of the energy chain system – this enables the replacement date for components to be predicted during ongoing operation and fail-safe operation is therefore enhanced.

Boilers are used by many industrial and commercial businesses as an integral part of their operations and very often they are one of the larger costs for the business. In many cases, the flue chimney is fitted with an economiser which reuses some of the heat energy in the flue gases to heat the boiler feed water.
