Flange Mounts for Vibration Isolation
When it comes to isolating vibration, controlling shock and reducing noise connected with equipment and machinery vibration, flange mounts perform very well in all three regards. The Vibro-Isolator series is particularly effective in applications where there are dynamic vibrational forces at play in multiple directions. That is since they can control the vibration from all directions. In addition they offer superior protection against structural borne vibration. Their axial to radial stiffness ratio is near 1 to 1 1. Which means that they can bear both axial and radial loads. Indeed, MS Flanges -Isolators support axial loads which range from 20 pounds (9 kg) completely around 2600 (1180 kg) pounds.
Flange mounts may also be sometimes described by other names like safetied tube mounts, 500 series mounts, all altitude mounts and low profile mounts. Whichever name they go by they provide the same reliable vibration isolation and control.
Where are these kinds of mounts most commonly encountered? Some the many applications include marine engines, shipping containers, lift trucks, trucks, farm equipment, generators, shipping containers, transportation, construction, rail, portable equipment, compressors, military applications, off highway, machinery, pumps and centrifuges, trailers, radiators, engines, cabs, HVAC, fans and blowers.
For those charged with installation, one of the best properties associated with flange mounts is that they are easy to mount. In fact, if a snubbing washer is used, the mounting process is virtually foolproof. Installation takes place through the mounted equipment's support structure. A mounting hole through the support enables such installation.
Another attractive feature of the mounts is that they are competitively priced compared to other vibration control options. What's more, users will enjoy a long service life with little to no maintenance required on the flange mount's lifespan.
As a side benefit, flange mounts reduce structure-borne noise simultaneously they are controlling the vibration that triggers such sound. Consequently, they have the added benefit of assisting to protect the hearing of these who routinely work in vibrational-heavy jobs.
The Vibro-Isolator series of flange mounts accommodate both English and Metric bolts in order that users around the globe can take advantage of all the perks they have to offer. This particular line is available in seven different sizes to accommodate a variety of applications. They also can be found in several fabrications, including neoprene, natural rubber and nitrile (Buna-N). Finally, Vibro-Isolator flange mounts are proudly made in the USA.
