The vibrations of the earth and its crust due to the seismic activity can have devastating effects. The equipment, piping, and ductwork can be dislodged from their mounting position in the building. The people today are increasingly becoming aware of the damages that can be caused by earthquakes and tsunami. They are taking the requisite countermeasures by using the seismic vibration isolators in the installation of equipment and machinery. The seismic spring isolators from the house of Andre HVAC International Inc. are designed to withstand the seismic forces while keeping your equipment safe.
The seismic spring mounts have the following distinct properties:
- Suitably located bolt holes in the seismic mounts make them easy to install.
- The body of steel with a solid build makes the housing strong enough to counter the seismic impact.
- The seismic spring mount is designed for easy top plate mounting.
- The snubbing element is made from the molded neoprene elastomer.
- The Zinc metallization on the metal parts protects them from corrosion.
If you do not want to use the threaded holes in the top plate for anchoring the equipment you can go in for the welding. In many typical situations, the alignment of the heavy equipment becomes difficult and welding is the only alternative. The neoprene elastomer is at the core of the snubbing element. However, the Andre HVAC range offers you the seismic spring isolator which can accommodate directional snubbing also. These are specially meant for heavy duty applications.
For ease of identification of the load capacity and deflection the springs in the seismic mounts are color coded. A spacer block is also provided for the air gap setting in order to meet the seismic code compliance. The seismic isolator is designed to counter the seismic forces up to a value of 2G.
HVAC vibration isolation
During an earthquake, you will not like your air-conditioning equipment to come crashing down along with the ducting. The Andre HVAC International Inc. range of HVAC vibration isolation products includes the special seismic mounts and independent seismic restraints for the HVAC applications. You can thus secure the air-conditioning equipment, fans, ducts etc. to the building with adequate protection from seismic activity.
Amber booth vibration isolators
Amber booth which is known for its specialty in the seismic products is a member of vibration isolation and seismic control manufacturers association and also American Society of heating, refrigeration, and air conditioning engineers Incorporated. Andre HVAC is proud to be associated with their product range and brings to you the Amber booth vibration isolators for your specific needs. These seismic spring isolators are recommended for use in HVAC, defense, transport, and OEM market. The Amber booth seismic control products, which have been in the market for the past 60 years, are especially suited for services and new construction.
By using the cable restraints in combination with the rubber hangers you can achieve the seismic restraint of suspended pipe and equipment. This becomes critical as falling pipes and equipment pose a grave danger during an earthquake.
