The rubber anti-vibration mounts and isolators have become a standard requirement as more and more people are becoming aware of the adverse effects of vibration and noise. Today, the isolation mounts are being widely used in refrigeration plants, compressors, HVAC equipment, diesel generators, fans, motors, pumps, presses and CNC machines etc. The elastomer can be natural rubber, neoprene or other compound depending on the requirement of resistance to ageing, compression set, water and oil. Let us take a look at the variety of the anti-vibration mounts and rubber hangers available.
Rubber grommets: The rubber grommet isolators provide the economical vibration isolation for light loads. The rubber bushings and rubber grommets are ideally suited for computers, disc drives, sensitive lab equipment and precision instrumentation.
Rubber bobbins: The rubber cylindrical mounts are also known as bobbin mounts and are used to curb both active and passive vibrations. The rubber dampers are effective in structure-borne noise control. A variety of combinations involving the stud and threaded hole at the two ends of the cylinder are available.
Rubber fan mounts: To prevent the transmission of vibrations from a fan motor to travel to the chassis, on which it is mounted, requires a rubber isolation mount to be put into place. The anti-vibration fan mount can be made from silicone and other rubber compounds in order to decouple the fan from the case and also attenuate the unwanted vibration.
HVAC anti-vibration mounts: The anti-vibration spring mounts that have elastomer core,
a coil spring and carbon steel bases are ideally suited for mounting of HVAC equipment like fans, AHUs, pumps, and motors. The rubber in shear isolators is also used for HVAC applications where a higher degree of stiffness is required in the horizontal plane and good isolation in the vertical plane. Thus, the rubber in shear vibration isolators provides a cost effective engineered solution for HVAC equipment mounting.
Hard rubber mounts: The hard rubber mounts are desired for high reliability and fine quality requirements. The hard rubber anti-vibration mounts are custom built and find the usage in automobiles, machinery and household electrical appliances etc.
Rubber hangers: The anti-vibration hangers are used for false ceiling suspension, HVAC ducting and piping suspension, and equipment suspension. The rubber hangers are primarily made from polymer material while the spring hangers make use of metal springs.
Anti-vibration motor mounts: The equipment like hexacopters and multi-rotors make use of the anti-vibration motor mounts to attenuate the vibration and noise from motors and props. The flight controller sensors function properly only when the rubber anti-vibration mounts significantly dampen the motor vibrations.
