igus bearings allowing lubrication-free mounting of solar panels

Photovoltaic or solar power plants operate under extreme environmental
conditions. Treotham offers dirt-repellent and lubrication-free spherical plain
bearings from igus that precisely meet these tough requirements. The bearings impress
with their long service life, durability and low cost.

The igus ESQM pillow block bearings enable the mounting of solar panels
that are constructed with square tubes of different edge lengths. In many
projects, ESQM-110 and ESQM-120 for 110mm or 120mm edge length have already
proven their worth. Now, Treotham also supplies ESQM-100 bearings for 100mm
edge length.

The cost-effective pillow block bearings are UV-resistant,
corrosion-free and particularly resistant to dirt and dust. They also enable
alignment compensation, for instance, to account for any unevenness in the
substrate. The lightweight bearings are easy to assemble and disassemble, with
a split version of housing and spherical balls. Their service life as well as load
capacity (also due to high static wind loads) has been successfully tested.

Treotham also supplies igus plain bearings that are suitable for solar
tower power plants, parabolic trough power plants or the axis of rotation for
panel adjustments, as well as energy chains with a defined torsional stop and
minimum bend radius.

With more than 17 years in the solar sector with their bearings backed by
extensive testing, igus can guarantee a long service life on all of their
