Q. - What is Anti Vibration Pads?
Anti Vibration Pads are made from a combination of high-quality rubber polymers and cork, this ideal combination ends up making a product that has excellent resistance to ageing, compression set, water & oil. Anti Vibration pads protect both assets and people by isolating noise and vibration, preventing damage to both machinery and the environment. Optimum performance service is however guaranteed only if the Anti Vibration pads are both specified and installed correctly. Anti Vibration pads are largely used for providing firm footing to many kinds of floors. These anti vibration pads for machines offer great isolation to intense vibrations and noise produced from machines. Not just that these Anti vibration pads also protect floors from the impact of heavy equipment and other machines.
The operating conditions, like temperature and surroundings of the application, will help to determine the best possible solutions. There are other factors that also must be studied to enable informed decision and using specifications of a suitable Anti Vibration pads, such as:
Mass moment of inertia
Centre of gravity
Q. – How do Anti Vibration Pads work?
The Anti Vibration Pads reduce the noise and vibration generated by machinery or appliances like compressor, conveyor, generators, washing machine, refrigeration plants, fans, motors, pumps, etc. The bottom treads grip the floor, ensuring stability. Material is engineered to reduce noise and vibration. When the Anti vibration pads are subjected to a vibrating load, the body member will dampen such vibrations. It is to be noted that when the vibration pad carries a load, the outer edge will deform from its position. This will cause a greater portion of the rim to contact the supporting surface on which Anti vibration pad rests to provide a greater force resisting creep thereby permitting a pad to support the leg of a machine against lateral movement without being anchored to the supporting surface. There are various types of Anti Vibration pads which should be identified after proper analysis.
Q. – Where do we use Anti Vibration Pads?
Anti vibration pads are mostly used in industrial equipment’s machines and in many households to prevent high frequency noise and walking of the machine. The same anti vibration pads are also used in much larger applications like industrial sized machines to address vibration and noise issues. These vibration isolation pads offer several benefits in terms of maintaining and protecting of industrial machines. Highly versatile and efficient, these isolation equipment’s are capable of tackling shock, vibration, and noise, creating a good damping effect. The primary purpose of anti vibration pads in an industry is to prevent the machine walking and creeping, very similarly to their household uses.
Since anti vibration pads are equipment’s that can be designed from materials like rubber and neoprene, they are highly capable of withstanding machines much heavier and larger in size. Any industrial machines or equipment’s ranging from pumps, engines, air conditioners and compressors that vibrates or rumbles, and create noise can be addressed with a Anti Vibration pad to protect them from damages and maintain its structural integrity and enhance their life span. Anti vibration pads help protect and maintain machines by isolating vibrations, reducing noise, and protecting against shock. Depending on the application, one should accordingly select an anti vibration pads that fit the need.
