How to reduce vibration by selecting the correct anti- vibration pads for industrial machine

Vibrations are produced by all industrial machinery and these vibrations can be quite damaging to the internal parts, bearing, gears and shafts of the machine. Hence, it is essential to block all the high amplitude vibrations generated by these machines. There are a number of vibration pads for machines available in the market for the sole purpose of dampening sound and vibration. One needs to select the right vibration pad for machinery to solve the problem.

For instance Vibrations in generators can travel through an entire building structure and cause a lot of nuisance to the building inhabitants. Similarly, a large compressor mounted on a factory rooftop can create massive vibrations during intermittent start-ups and stops. While you can reduce vibrations in these machines by following proper maintenance schedules, the fact is that eventually when the machine like the generator, compressor, motor, pumps etc gets older, the maintenance costs and maintenance downtime increases. In such a scenario vibrations are not totally avoidable. The machines will tend to vibrate. But, what can be done is mounting the machine on anti Vibration mat or anti vibration pads. The machine pads are made from vibration absorbing materials like springs or rubber or neoprene for effective vibration dampening. The major advantage of these anti vibration pads are that they effectively isolate all vibrations being produced by the machine. Thus, the vibrations produced by the machine are not transmitted beyond the anti vibration pads and can greatly be controlled, absorbed and isolate the harmful and annoying vibrations that gets transmitted from these machines.

Andre HVAC International offers a wide variety of anti vibration pads and isolation equipments like rubber isolation pads, neoprene pads, neoprene cork pads, vibration suppression pads etc for industrial machines. So, depending on the requirement we can offer our clients with vibration pads for machine that’s suitable, reasonable and reliable.
