What are seismic mounts & how to select a right seismic mount?

Seismic mounts are instruments installed in industries to control the motion of equipment, piping and ductwork during any seismic event that occurs. As per the new safety norms related to building code, it has become compulsory for historically non-seismic regions of the country to require seismic restraint for all Mechanical, electrical and plumbing equipments.

Andhre HVAC manufactures high quality Integrated seismic mounts for mechanical equipment that are designed to combine spring mount vibration isolation with multi-directional flexible restraint to limit the equipment movement under any seismic event.

In a normal operating situations, the mountings provide vibration isolation generally equivalent to open spring mountings but, when subjected to physical displacements such as those generated by seismic forces, the equipment motion relative to the supporting structure is restricted. At the maximum restraint capacity of each mounting type movement is limited to less than 12mm along any major axis.

At Andre HVAC, we offer a wide range of seismic spring mounts, rubber seismic mount, and independent seismic restraints etc for a full range of applications & industrial equipments. We also offer a cable restraint, which is used in conjunction with spring or rubber hangers for the seismic restraint of suspended piping and other suspended equipments.

How to select the correct seismic mount?

Selecting of the right seismic mount for your industrial equipments is very critical. In order to obtain the necessary static deflection, one needs to select the seismic mount in accordance to the type of equipment and its load. Various dynamic factor needs to be taken into account for all RCMS seismic mounts. Andre HVAC offers range of seismic mount restraint depending on capacity need that has to be confirmed for the specific application by the clients.
