equipment runs. The manufacturers do take care of the internal protection for the sensitive parts of the machine but the external aspects are generally the responsibility of the buyer. Thus, the anti-vibration mountings come under his scope. Let us look at some of the solutions.

Rubber bushings:  Metal bushes are bonded with rubber to create rubber bushings that provide vibration damping and reduction in noise. The typical applications include wheel suspensions, vibratory feeders and mobile power equipment. The resilience property of rubber helps reduce wear and eliminates the use of lubricants.

Anti-vibration rubber mounts: The anti-vibration rubber mounts is a product similar to the bushings with a metal stud bonded to the elastomer. The anti-vibration rubber mount is placed directly on the level floor and the machine legs are positioned on the stud and tightened. The installation is very simple and does not require any grouting or civil foundation work. The weight of the machine is evenly distributed on the anti-vibration mounts. The elastomer element creates the desired friction with the floor and prevents the machine from walking. There are other types where there is a bonded metal plate on top of the elastomer element and the equipment is just placed on top. The anti-vibration rubber mounting not only protects the equipment but also improves the comfort level of the operator. They find a wide application in the railroad, marine and automotive industry.

Anti-vibration mounts: The anti-vibration mounts are available in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet the specific customer requirements. The types available are pedestal, sandwich, angular and cylindrical mounts rubber. The buyer needs to be clear on the space availability, load capacity, deflection requirements and environmental conditions with regard to the operation of the anti-vibration rubber mount.  The highly knowledgeable customers directly ask for the compactor, shock and shear compression rubber mounts. There are others who select the anti-vibration mounts with the neoprene elastomer. Neoprene is especially effective in harsh environments where there is exposure to oil and water.

Anti-vibration fan mounts: While the most commonly used fan is the ceiling fan but you will

find that fans are used in multiple applications like blowers, air conditioners, and cooling fans etc. The fans are primarily driven by motors and hence are prone to vibrations. Rotating parts also need static and dynamic balancing; otherwise, they can create a ruckus. The electronic parts like chips, logic control units, central processing units, power supply etc. all require cooling by small fans to avoid overheating and burnouts. The anti-vibration fan mounts for electronic equipment ensure that vibrations are dampened and they do not damage the sensitive parts. The rubber mounts are small in size based on the small fans that cool the electronic panels in the machines but their performance cannot be undermined.

Automotive rubber mounts: All automobile manufacturers make extensive use of metal bonded rubber mounts for mounting of the engine, transmission and suspension on the chassis. The automotive rubber mounts are customized according to the mounting requirements spelt out by the manufacturer. The engine and transmission produce a tremendous amount of vibrations when in operation but you can hardly feel any of it inside the vehicle. The reason is the damping and isolation provided by the automotive rubber mounts. Similarly, bracket rubber mounting is used in the automobiles to isolate the sensitive parts from the vibrations of the chassis when the automobile is moving on the road. The rubber interface absorbs the vibrations while the bracket holds the part to the chassis.

The HVAC anti-vibration rubber mounts happen to be a specialty of Andre HVAC International Inc.  The anti-vibration mounts can give you the peace of mind with regard to keeping the vibrations in check and noise under control.

Get over the vibration problem with the anti-vibration rubber mounts

Equipment like pumps, motors, generators, compressors, HVAC systems, fans, and washing machines are a source of vibration and noise. When the equipment is placed on a flexible or rigid support system, the vibrations get transmitted to the surroundings. Each and every object has its own natural frequency and when the vibrations enter the object, they cause it vibrate sympathetically. The vibrations and noise tend to get amplified if the induced vibrations approach the natural frequency of the equipment resulting in resonance. The anti-vibration rubber mounts limit the level of amplification by dissipating the energy in the system.

Rubber isolator mounts: The most popular mounts in this category are the cylindrical vibration mounts. They are used in a variety of applications like compressors, motors, electronic control panels and generators. Depending on the application requirement the anti-vibration rubber mounting is available in three thread combinations: Male/male;
