Trolex Engineering have recently introduced the TX4782 Electrical Slip Ring Unit to their range, certified for use in IECEx hazardous areas, to IEC 60079-0, IEC 60079-1 and IEC 60079-7 standards, for use in FPSO applications.
The electrical slip ring has a throughbore of 760mm, allowing the passage of hydraulics, pneumatics or product pipes, with a height of 2.1m. Rated up to 500Vac with a maximum throughput current of 2010 Amps, it allows the transmission of both power and signals. The slip ring has been certified for use in an ambient temperature of -20°C to +45°C and is manufactured from 316L Stainless Steel.
The slip ring is fitted with junction boxes for connection from both the rotor and stator, allowing easy installation on-site, without the weight of heavy cables. In addition, all maintenance can be done via removal of covers fitted to the unit to access the internal elements.
Trolex Engineering have been designing and manufacturing both explosion protected and weather protected slip rings for over 40 years. From small, low power slip rings, through to large, high power slip rings; tried and tested in a range of arduous environments. They offer both standard and bespoke products to suit any application.
