TECDOS Drive & Conveyor

January 29, 2013

RUD are attending Subsea 2013 Aberdeen 6th/7th Feb

RUD look forward to presenting a range of their latest products and innovations for the maritime environment at the show. Exhibiting at stand number A9 come see RUD

An area of focus for RUD at the show will be displaying their range of lifting and lashing applications, offering over 270 different tested and certified lifting/lashing points, 210 of which are for bolting and 60 for welding, used across a wide range of working environments. As well as their lifting applications they will be showing their latest Innovation RFID technology, being one of the first manufacturers offering the RFID chip embedded into an application, RUD are at the forefront of the innovation.

RUD will also be displaying their range of conveyor and drive systems, known as TECDOS supporting a wide variety of maritime applications. So far TECDOS has been used to assist opening and closing of flood gates, lifting and lowering containers, moving and swivelling port cranes, launching lifeboats to telescoping crane booms to name a few.

The scope of TECDOS is very great says product manager RUD Chains ‘There are many maritime applications that TECDOS can fit to now and there is also lots of potential applications where round steel chain drives could be  used for future projects and new innovations’.

The strength and quality of RUD chain used in their TECDOS system is exceptional. The breaking forces of the single chain strands range from 20 to 1287kN. The strongest strands can pull loads weighing more than 10,000 tonnes or lift goods weighing up to 26 tonnes, meaning it has the power to work successfully across even the most demanding environments.

There is no doubt that TECDOS offers a great range of advantages with its systems high durability and long service life when used underwater, offshore or in harbours. RUD have great knowledge and technical experience to aid in projects in the industry whether you are looking for a drive for a ship loader, to unique handling systems for the deployment of large structural fabrications on the seabed, RUD have standard and totally specialised solutions to help in maritime projects. As TECDOS is such a versatile application RUD are always looking for new projects within the maritime environment to best utilise the TECDOS advantages.
