Select the vibration mounts with the right dampening elements

If you want to prolong your machine life by dampening the vibrations you can go in for the neoprene cork pads for your applications. The typical uses include air conditioners, pumps, presses, generators, fans and motors. The neoprene cork pad has a half inch thick cork layer centered between the ribbed neoprene pads. Neoprene is an excellent elastomer that is resistant to ageing, compression set, water and oil. Thus, the neoprene pad can withstand the toughest of environments on the shop-floor. The cork layer acts as an absorber of low frequencies of noise generated due to the machine vibrations.

The neoprene cork pad has to be cut in such a fashion so as there is not more than 50 pounds per square inch of machine weight on it when installed. Since the machines are

normally designed according to this load the neoprene rubber cork pad acts as an excellent machine mounting pad. While cutting the machine pad according to the mounting base of the machine, care must be taken to leave a ½ inch margin all around. The neoprene rubber cork pad can help in additional vibration isolation with the alternate rib height design. This design is well adapted to both high and low weight loads.

The neoprene vibration isolation pad also comes as an elastomer sheet with waffle molded design. The isolation pads can be placed beneath the feet of the machine by lifting it gently. The waffle design in the rubber pads allows for material expansion and highest deflection without loss of stability. The neoprene vibration isolation pads not only provide a solid hold for both the floor and machinery but also give the maximum resilience and minimum of creep.

The natural rubber vibration pads withstand a load of 45 pounds per square inch. Each square section has four suction holes of about ½” diameter that gives the firm footing to the equipment on the floor. The non-vibration pad comes in an 18” X 18” size made up of multiple square sections that can be easily cut and separated as per the customer requirement. The rubber pad has a rated deflection of 3/16”.

The rubber vibration dampening mounts come in various shapes and sizes to suit specific customer requirements. The vibration isolation mounts come with a mounting stud and nut for ease of installation. Another rubber vibration isolator comes a coil spring and mounting cap or plate on either side. The other type of rubber vibration mounts and shock mounts include products like center bonded mounts, grommet isolators, machinery mounting pads, platform mounts and two-piece mounts etc.  The vibration rubber mounts result in greater machine accuracy, longer service life, smoother operations and reduced maintenance.

Andre HVAC International Inc. made a modest beginning in 2003 when it came out with its range of vibration dampening sandwich mounts, rubber isolation pads, HVAC mounting pads and rubberized hangers. From the humble beginning, AHI is today a global enterprise that caters to vibration isolation needs and requirements of a large number of customers.


Get some effective vibration isolation through rubber mounts and rubber dampers

If you go around any industry or office basement, you are likely to see a number of pumps, motors, generators, compressors and HVAC equipment in operation. All these equipment have rotating or moving parts which generate vibrations. To mitigate the vibrations, the anti-vibration rubber mountings or rubber hangers are used. The other common rubber dampers in use are the elastomer pads, dense closed cell foams and laminate materials.

Andre HVAC International Inc. makes use of the latest technology and developments in the damping materials to bring you the entire range of vibration dampening mounts and rubber hangers. Their range also includes the HVAC rubber mounts and exhaust rubber mounts which are suited for specific requirements. Andre HVAC products are known for their quality and performance. The effective control of vibrations by their anti-vibration rubber mounts is what draws the customers to them.

The theory behind the control of vibration by the rubber isolation mount lies in the effective control of resonance amplification. This phenomenon happens when the natural frequency of the equipment matches with the generated vibrations causing it to vibrate in harmony and produce a loud sound. The rubber vibration isolators limit the level of amplification by dissipating the energy in the system. However, the selection of the anti-vibration rubber mounts has to be done carefully as an increased damping may result in reduced isolation at higher frequencies.

HVAC rubber mounts and isolators: The heating ventilation and air conditioning applications are very common in the homes and commercial establishments. The temperature control by these equipment looks good, but the vibrations and noise emanating from the moving parts can pose a lot of problems. However, the Andre HVAC double deflection rubber shear mounts come to your rescue. You can use the neoprene based HVAC rubber mount for installing the air conditioner unit on the rooftop. The unit is secured to rubber mounts with the help of bolts while the metal flange bonded with the rubber isolator secures it to the surface on the roof. The rubber provides the isolation and damping. The fan rubber mounts and fan vibration dampers are ideally suited for the fan installation.

HVAC rubber hangers: Most of the installations of HVAC systems require suspension from the roof and you can make use of the single deflection rubber shear hangers and double deflection shear hangers based on the weight and dynamics of the suspended part. The housing of the single deflection shear hanger is formed with a plate bent in rectangular shape. The HVAC rubber hanger has a grommet rubber at the bottom which isolates the equipment from the suspended part. The rubber in shear mount is made from specialty rubbers like neoprene which provide isolation as well as weather resistance.

Andre HVAC International Inc. made a foray into the field of rubber vibration dampening mounts in the year 2003.  They started with the rubber anti-vibration mounts for the HVAC installations and have grown from strength to strength over the last decade. Today they have a wide variety of vibration isolation rubber products for multiple applications in varied fields. If you need a rubber isolator mount you will find it with Andre HVAC.
