Anti-vibration rubber mounts perfect isolation equipment for Industrial application

Affect of vibration on industrial machines

High level vibration causes severe damage to machinery. Hence it is essential to isolate vibrations for maintaining a longer life of machine. To prevent high level vibration, rubber equipments are used as isolating pads for absorbing these vibrations and prevent transmission of it to the surrounding machines & structures. These rubber equipments in use are known as anti vibration rubber mounts.

Rubber mounting anti-vibration equipments used for isolation of vibration

Rubber isolation mounts are used in various types of industrial applications, such as HVAC equipments, generators, motors, machines and pumps. These anti vibration mounts have the capability of absorbing high levels of vibration which means they feature good damping capabilities. These rubber mounts and isolators are also capable of reducing high frequency sound generated from vibrating machine, ensuring silent and smooth running of machines.

Selection of right anti-vibration mounts

Selecting the right type of anti vibration mounting is essential for smooth running of machinery. These anti vibrations rubber mounts come in different shapes and sizes so as to fit different machines, suit different weights and withstand different environmental conditions. Some of these vibration isolation mounts include cylindrical bobbins, buffers, cab mounts, sandwich mounts etc. For every type of mount there comes a range of size that ensures every machine is individually catered to. With so many anti- vibration rubber mounts available in the market it is difficult to decide one that is suitable for your machine or application. Hence, it is advisable to consult a professional rather than waste time wondering what’s best by yourself.

Selecting of manufacturer for anti-vibration rubber mounts

When selecting your anti vibration products it goes without saying that you should buy quality products from a manufacturer having knowledge and experience in it. If you settle for cheap vibration rubber mounts there are chances that these products may not protect your machine and result in a risk of further damaging your machine and incurring additional cost.

What are rubber vibrations mounts?

Rubber anti-vibration mounts, rubber vibration dampers and rubber isolation mounts are all used for the same purpose that is isolation of high frequency noise and vibration. In any industry a large machine such as a pump, compressor or industrial engine produces noise and vibrations. These vibrations can cause damage to equipment, prematurely wear out machines and create unsafe working conditions. Eventually this can affect the product quality and can even bring plant production to a complete stall. To protect your machinery, from such damage, rubber isolation mounts are necessary. These devices help reduce the amplitude and frequency of the vibration created by the machinery.

A properly sized rubber anti-vibration mounts will significantly reduce the vibration, shock and noise created by the machine thus increasing the life span of the machine.  These vibration rubber mounts creates a resilient connection to the machine and transfers the energy from the machine onto the mount which thus dampens the vibrations and shocks. Vibration damping mounts are commonly made with an elastomeric such as natural rubber which is bonded to a metal. This rubber vibration mount is then attached to a machine such as a generator that helps lower the natural frequency of the machine below the disturbing frequency, all without affecting the performance of the machine.

While an inappropriate sized mount might reduce the higher frequency vibration or noise, but the lower frequency conditions may amplify, resulting in worsening the condition. Hence it is important to select the right anti-vibration mount for your application.

Vibration mounts come in a wide variety of range. So, depending on your application in use one must accordingly select the right vibration mounts. For instance marine engine mounts are used as rubber vibration isolators in industrial applications such as diesel generators and engines. While, rubber cylindrical mounts also known as rubber bobbin mounts are used in light weight applications for isolation of shocks and vibrations.

The Common applications of rubber vibration mounts are pumps, roll mills, CNC machinery, military equipment, washing machines, industrial engines, HVAC systems, Aviation equipment, compressors, shipping containers, defense equipment and much more.

Andre HVAC International Inc offers the highest quality rubber vibration mounts and isolators at the most reasonable price. Here the mounts and isolators are made with the best materials for high durability and prolonged life span of your equipment. So, in case you are replacing worn out vibration mounts or have a special mounting requirement, we have it all to provide you with the best noise, vibration and shock isolation. Get in touch with us for any noise, vibration and shock isolation requirement and we will provide you with the best solution, customized to your specific application need.

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.
