Energy - SCHLEIFRING

Energy

Travelling, cooking, communicating – none of these are really imaginable without electricity. To ensure there will still be enough power available to let us live our lifes in the future, our slip rings are being used in the wind power and deep-sea extraction sectors.

Renewable energy

A significant proportion of the electricity mix consists of renewable energy sources. A particularly resource-friendly role is played by wind energy. Learn which important role slip rings play here and which exacting demands they have to withstand.

Deep-sea extraction

Our slip rings are also used in the deep-sea extraction of crude oil and natural gas. Indeed, they are already being employed in the exploration of geological reserves in the depths of the ocean. Slip rings not only have to withstand extreme environmental conditions such as pressures up to 300 bars, at the same time they have to transmit signals from high-quality communication channels such as Ethernet. Thus, slip rings support the oil pumps and valves on the ocean floor as well as the control systems on the platform.
