Shaft power components


No weak links in this energy chain

Second Quarter 2020 Shaft power components

EKD energy chain from Powermite ensures seamless operation of cranes, milling and boring machines as well as other mobile equipment through the reliable and cost-effective protection of cable, hose and hydraulic supply at a fixed or variable speed. Available in galvanised steel, stainless steel and carburised (hardened) steel, the unrivalled wear resistance of Powermite’s comprehensive range of EKD Kolibri energy chain delivers exceptional reliability. This robust chain requires minimal maintenance and spares and can operate in extreme temperatures between -20 and 100°C. Three different types of energy chain are on offer to meet diverse application requirements: a one part link or flap-open link range, a wide range of bending radii (to facilitate large cables) and chain with separate end-connectors (each link can be used as an end-connector).

Powermite’s energy chain portfolio also extends to a plastic range consisting of self-extinguishing, ATEX anti-static, steel-coated and robotic bi-directional chain. All plastic chains are equipped with integrated connectors and therefore require very few spare parts, keeping costs and downtime to a minimum. The company also offers chains engineered for ultra-long distances. These chains, known as the Marathon System, use roller sets and are capable of maintaining speeds of up to 200 m/minute.

Powermite’s countrywide branch and distribution network carries a full range of spares for the entire EKD Kolibri energy chain range and delivers expert after-sales service support to customers and end-users across 15 African countries as well as in Mauritius.
