The compact wire rope isolator unleashed!

The electronic components fitted in machines and panels are very precise and sensitive in nature. When the electronic equipment runs, there are parts that produce the hum and vibrations which can cause serious damage to the surrounding components. The first

requirement of the vibration damping needs was met with the elastomer pads. However, the rubber vibration mounts were unable to perform due to temperature variations. Despite having heat dissipation devices installed the electronic components get heated to high temperatures.  The vibration pad was ineffective in the concurrent shock and vibration application. The fans used for cooling the electronic devices were also producing vibrations. The anti-vibration mount wire rope isolators were too big for the electronic applications and hence an alternative was worked out. That is when the circular cable isolators were born. The characteristics: The circular cable isolators have a homogenous design and a single point installation. Thus, they provide multi-axis isolation which is quite consistent. Given the small size, the compact wire rope isolator is well suited for the separation of key fundamental components rather than the complete system. Not only are the compact

isolators economical but also are suitable for high-performance design systems. As far as the maximum dynamic displacement is concerned, it utilises 70 per cent of the space taken up by the circular cable isolators. The dynamic stiffness decreases with the increase in displacement. The resilience is shown by the cable isolator in the case of a shock loading. Due to the impact loading the shock isolator does buckle but does not get permanently deformed. It is able to spring back into position once the shock load is removed. The construction: The cable isolators are made up of stainless steel 304 grade wire rope and suitable aluminium alloy retaining bars with T6 heat treatment. The strands of high tensile steel wire are interwoven to construct the vibration isolation wire rope. The

construction gives the circular cable isolators the desired strength to withstand the shock load and depict resilience. The metallic constituents are unaffected by ozone, chemicals and oils. This is because of the basic inert nature of the raw material used in the construction. In fact, the circular cable isolators can withstand environmentally unfriendly and harsh requirement also.  They also withstand extreme temperatures from -100oC and going up to 250oC. The temperature range covers the majority of applications in the industry today. The load capacity is from 5 to 35 KGs and well suited to the electronic industry. The products also conform to a number of military standards and industry specifications. Additional features: The circular cable isolators depict non-linear attributes in the stiffness characteristics. As compared to the larger shock deflections, the smaller deviations are normally linked with vibration damping which has a different spring rate. The cable isolator’s vibration damping is to the tune of 5 to 15% depending on the size and input level. Since, the compact wire rope isolator is capable of operating on more than one axis; it can withstand compression load, 45o compression load as well as the shear load very easily. The versatility of the design allows the compact wire rope isolators to be used in a number of applications. In the electronic industry, they used for CD-ROM drives and disk drives. These devices have rotating parts which generate vibrations and humming noise. The equipment like centrifuges and medical ventilators make use of the compact design. The varying load and speeds of rotation are well absorbed by the anti-vibration mount wire rope isolators. Then, there are a variety of applications like avionics, sound systems, video displays, audio-visual combinations, small motors and pumps, sensitive lab equipment and electronic devices where the circular wire isolators are deployed. People buy wire rope isolators as they are a versatile piece of equipment offering vibration and shock mitigation solutions.

Get the right vibration and shock isolation for your equipment

Wherever there is a working equipment or machinery there are vibrations. They may appear harmless to a visitor or may go unnoticed by the people around depending on the intensity and noise generated. The vibrations are however very harmful to your machines and infrastructure. The surrounding equipment and supports also have their own natural frequency of vibration. The vibrations from a working machine are transmitted to the support causing them to vibrate sympathetically. The phenomenon of resonance occurs when the sympathetic vibration frequency matches the natural frequency of the support infrastructure. A loud noise is produced and the supports may vibrate violently causing damage. Thus, it is essential to go in for rubber vibration isolators in order to safeguard your equipment and machines.

  • The rubber vibration isolators are used to limit the amount of vibration energy transfer to the supports
  • The products are suitable for both stationary and dynamic applications.
  • Choice of size, application, and load bearing capacities are available in the product range.

Mount the equipment: The rubber isolation mounts have the elastomer element, which is responsible for the damping of vibrations. The mechanical energy is absorbed by the rubber vibration damper and dissipated in the form of low-level heat. The amount of damping is dependent on a number of factors like the frequency of vibration, weight of the equipment, and the surface area. The selection of the rubber mounts for vibration has to be done carefully by taking into consideration all the contributing factors.

Shapes and types: There are a variety of shapes and sizes available for the rubber vibration isolators and the selection is based on the application requirements. The shapes include cylindrical, hexagonal, and two-piece etc. In addition to the shape, the rubber isolation mounts are available as center metal bonded type and grommet type etc. to name a few. For applications where the equipment is to be suspended from the ceiling, the spring hanger mount vibration isolators are used.

Suspension of equipment: For the HVAC equipment, ducting, and pipes extensive use of spring hangers is done. The spring provides the deflection to take care of the load while the elastomer element provides the vibration damping. The suspended equipment and the support structure are isolated from each other by virtue of the elastomer which does not permit metal to metal contact. The spring hanger supports are used for ease of mounting. The air conditioning units which generate a lot of vibrations when the compressor works can be mounted on the rooftops by using the rubber isolation mounts while the entire ducting in the building can be suspended from the ceilings or support structure using the spring hangers.

Shock Vibrations: When there is an explosion or an earthquake strike, a shock pulse may be generated which results from a sudden acceleration. This form of shock vibration is highly destructive and damaging. Since an earthquake or a terrorist strike is not a routine phenomenon, it used to be ignored earlier. However, as people are becoming more aware they are concerned about seismic restraints and shock vibration control as well. The shock isolators are now being used extensively for the protection of buildings and sensitive high-cost equipment. They are highly recommended for vehicles used by the armed forces on land, sea and in air. The poor road conditions and situations arising out of collisions are “no match” for the shock isolators. Similarly, they are effective in turbulence, rough landings, high-velocity winds and sea storms.

Shackle mounts with an elastomer element between the metal plates are used as an effective anti-vibration product. The shock impacts are suitably absorbed by the rubber vibration damper in tough conditions. A wide variety of shackle mounts is available in varying shapes and sizes. These include the mounting plate and threaded stud type, square plate with corner holes type, and cap plates with elastomer type.

Andre HVAC International Inc. entered the anti-vibration arena way back in the year 2003. From a modest beginning then, AHI is present today in the majority of the anti-vibration products available in the market. The hallmark has been the consistent quality and customer service. The firm provides assistance to its clients on the various aspects of vibration control at the design stage itself.
