The COMPENSER® of the CE-series is a non-reversible maintenance-free shock reducing element which can be used for emergency use, for example as a fall protection. If necessary, several deformation tubes (so-called crash element) can be installed in parallel as end stops.
energy absorption is possible in pull direction & in push direction
very short design
high buckling safety
surface galvanized or painted
variable progression of the reaction force over the stroke possible, e.g. optionally constant reaction force over the entire stroke, increasing reaction force in the beginning stroke range, or staggered progression
extreme temperature ranges
energy absorption up to 700 kNm
The crash element is attached to the support structure using the flange 3. In the event of an impact, the stamp (acting as a mandrel) 1 enters the deformation tube 2 and expands it. The initiated energy is converted into deformation energy and by means of friction into heat energy. The combination of deformation and friction determines the reaction force level.
The maintenance-free CE-series crash element is a cost-effective irreversible shock reducing element for emergency use. However, it can only be used for a one off impact, e.g. as a fall protection. If necessary, many crash elements can be provided in parallel.
