Product Spotlight - Marine Engine Anti Vibration Mounts
VSCM compression-shear cup/engine marine anti vibration mounts provide excellent protection against vibration and shock. They are used in a wide variety of industrial applications for the isolation of supporting structures from vertical and horizontal forces. Key applications include supports for industrial machinery, centrifuges, blowers, transformers, combustion engines, motors, marine engines, industrial diesel generator sets, pumps, HVAC, factory production equipment, and where equipment anchoring is required.
These motor engine mounts have excellent vibration damping characteristics under vertical compression and shear loads. They prevent vibration travel through structures and vessels, protect sensitive components and improve users’ comfort. Cup-shaped top plate protects elastomer from oils, industrial solvents and chemicals.
Strong anti vibration mounts are capable of withstanding impact loads of up to 10,000lbs!
A construction for our anti vibration mounts provides the capacity to resist nominal vertical tensile forces. These mounts have unique load capacity of up to 15,000 lbs. Maximum shear load capacity when vertical loads are applied is 30% of compression load. Oval and square base mounts are available for various anchoring and load requirements.
Standard cup mounts are available in mild steel, but we also offer several optional materials for marine, offshore, and other corrosive environments; these include 316 L stainless steel (CMSS model) and an EPDM rubber compound. For food, pharmaceutical, and hygiene critical applications, mounts are made of 304 stainless steel (CMSS model) and food-grade rubber compounds. VibraSystems’ technical department will assist with optimal material selection to suit specific applications.
VibraSystems’ continuous product development program and standard design meet all applicable industry standards, codes and requirements. We will help select each anti vibration mount for the specified equipment and will meet additional customer requirements.
