  • The What and Why of Vibration Mounts

    Vibration mounts are used to isolate the vibrations of different equipment and mechanical parts from one another. The purpose of the mount is to reduce the transmission of vibrations between two separate elements while still providing stability and mechanical support. The vibration mounts are designed to reduce the amount of vibration effects on people, structures, and equipment. The vibration isolators lower the frequency of a machine below the frequency that causes the unit to vibrate. Basically, vibration absorbers and isolation mounts keep the two frequencies of the two components out...

Industry Information

Vibration Mounts

Vibration mounts are used to support heavy mechanical or industrial equipment, and to isolate and absorb vibrations which result from the running of the machines or equipment. Continuous vibration takes its toll on parts and components, resulting in equipment malfunction or faulty product manufacturing. The noise caused as a result of some vibrations can also create an unpleasant working environment and may be hazardous to worker safety.

Shock absorbers and vibration control parts are used to prevent kinetic energy and motion from flowing through two connecting surfaces, thereby reducing the effects of vibration and the potential for resulting noise. Furthermore, sensitive equipment and control panels, as well as precision machines can be protected from damage or irregularities that may occur from exposure to powerful vibrations by the use of mounts or another energy absorption device such as rubber bumpers. Vibration mounts typically consist of two parts: the isolator and the fasteners. The fasteners are metal studs used to attach the mount to its fixed surface and to the piece of equipment which it is to control the vibration for. The isolator is the vibration absorbent material that surrounds the fasteners. This is typically made from a mix of polymers, such as rubber and a plastic. Vibration mounts can be plate mounts, seismic mounts, stud mounts, cylindrical mounts, ring mounts and more, depending on the intended applications.

Industries as varied as power plants, laundry facilities, food processing and air conditioning all use vibration mounts in certain applications in order to achieve greater output and performance from the machines, reduced maintenance and repair costs and a longer operating life. Vehicles, generators, pumps and centrifuges, fans, marine equipment, air compressors and most rotating industrial equipment all use various forms of vibration mounts or vibration absorbers. They are typically easy to manufacture and relatively cheap in terms of benefits realized from their use. Rubber is a durable material and so provides a low maintenance option for vibration control. Stock items can be used for most general applications; however, custom specifications are able to be met by many manufacturers in terms of size, absorption capabilities and mounting configurations. Choosing a mounting type is based on application and needed load bearing range. For low frequency disturbances such as in fridges or air conditioners, a spring mount can adequately meet the vibration control needs. For heavier-duty applications, a seismic mount or a stud mount might be more appropriate.
