Anti-Vibration systems for industrial machines and other installations

Vibration is a mechanical phenomenon whereby oscillations occur about an equilibrium point in industrial machines, which results in high wear and tear on mechanical components reducing its accuracy and precision that eventually leads to energy losses. To restrict all mechanical losses and to prevent wearing out of components anti-vibrations systems are installed. As widely said prevention is better than cure, anti-vibration mounts prevents mechanical components of industrial machines by absorbing vibration and avoiding any direct impact on performance of machines. It is widely used for various application, which includes anti-vibration case fan mounts, anti-vibration ceiling hangers, anti-vibration Shock Mounts and Cylindrical Insulators Mounts. Anti-vibration systems form the core element in mechanical system, that significant contributes to good performance of machinery. It isolates the vibrations preventing any sort of damage to the working elements of mechanical system. As a solution to the issues of vibration and noise, we have listed down a few types of vibration isolators for automobile and other industrial applications.

Leaf spring hanger extensions

Leaf spring hanger extensions are widely used for automobile applications to mount leaf springs. This equipment is available in wide range of sizes, material and customised as per the fitment of individual vehicle.  Installation of leaf spring hanger extensions prevents transmission of vibration to the surrounding structure of automobile and limits any form of damage to it. It is widely used in Heavy motor vehicle or load carrying vehicle, which makes its very critical system. The leaf spring hanger extensions are rugged, corrosion resistant and highly customised which makes it an ideal vibration isolator for automobile

Anti-vibration case fan mounts

This is a vibration system that is specifically designed to protect your computer from the vibrations and noise generated through mechanical components. Vibration from fan motors travel into the PC case and amplifies when the fan is screwed tightly to the chassis, creating noise. Anti-vibration case fan mounts are designed considering acoustic requirement and with a purpose to tackle fan-induced vibrational noise. Anti-vibration case fan mounts isolate the vibration produced from motor and absorbs it effectively, preventing them from traveling to the case of computer. Anti-vibration case fan mount is a perfect combination of material and design, that limits vibrational noise from the system and delivers a complete quiet system for use. Although simple in application, yet its critical design makes it an essential element for creating a quiet and perfect computer system.

Anti-vibration ceiling hangers

Anti-vibration ceiling hangers are vibration systems designed for construction projects. Occupied areas in a building is usually affected by noise generated in the level immediately above. Anti-vibration ceiling hangers are designed to break the structural born noise and vibration transmission between the upper and lower floors. The rubber element has the ability to deflect and absorb frequencies generated through building structures. The anti-vibration ceiling hangers are designed to suit any type of architectural ceiling and floor. These hangers provide superior noise isolation and are available in a range of different combinations of deflection, attachment and composition, to suit the requirement of project.

 

Spring vibration isolator hangers for piping and HVAC systems

Spring load isolation hanger – Spring vibration isolator hangers are an integrated part of the Piping and HVAC Industry. These spring hangers are typically used in piping industry for supporting pipe weights and other similar suspended equipment’s. They are used in support system to balance slight vertical displacements in the pipe system. So, in cases where the rigid support does not take the load due to the thermal movement or the support affecting the equipment in connection, professional piping engineers suggest the use of these spring load isolation hangers to share the load and provide protection to the piping system. However, it is extremely crucial to select an appropriate type of hanger to support for any given application. Depending on the requirement of load support, one must select a spring isolator in accordance to it.

Termed to be the most economical solution for suspended installations, these spring vibration isolator hangers are known to be very effective vibration isolation equipment’s. These spring hangers comprise of steel springs in sturdy steel housings with top and bottom elastomer cups for isolation of vibration and significant reduction of noise levels. There are two types of Spring hangers available in the market which includes Variable Spring Hanger and Constant spring hangers. In case of the variable spring hangers the load varies throughout its operating range. While in case of the constant spring hangers, the load remains constant throughout its operating range. So, depending on the load requirement one can accordingly select the right type of suspended vibration isolation hanger

Benefits of spring isolation hangers –

  • Spring hangers are effective vibration, noise and shock isolation equipment’s
  • They are known to provide better structural safety to the system in which they are installed
  • Spring load isolation hangers help reduce machine operation fatigue and provide more congenial working environment
  • They are simple easy to install equipment’s that are very reliable.
  • Installation of spring vibration isolators ensures extended machinery shelf-life.
  •  Installation of sensitive equipment’s and heavy machinery is easily possible with spring hangers.
  • With installation of spring hangers, you need not require additional foundation for small and medium weight machines. Further, installation of spring hangers facilitates reduced depth of foundation for heavy machines.

Spring type anti-vibration mounts
Generally when compared to rubber mounts, spring mounts have better static deflection which offers greater isolation efficiency. Hence, spring type anti-vibration mounts are much more suitable for critical applications, that have low disturbing frequencies. Vibration isolation Spring mounts come in a range of deflections and maximum loads. So, depending on the level of isolation required one can accurately select the right one for the desired application. Spring mounts are available with three mounting options, no bases, lower base attached and upper and lower bases attached. These are suitable to reduce vibration in fans, air handling units, pumps, and generators.

General application of spring hangers and spring mounts

Spring hangers and mounts are generally used in suspended industrial and commercial applications. They are generally used installation of fans, air handling units, pumps, generators etc.
