Spring Vibration Isolators
Spring Vibration Isolators are used in the application where low frequency vibrations are present.
VibraSystems spring mounts are capable of withstanding loads of over 3,000lbs, and provide excellent isolation from vibration and transferring force. Commonly used applications include but not limited to: cooling towers, chillers, HVAC units, generators, pumps, and other types of equipment. Housed floor mounted spring isolators can have springs with up to 3" deflection. Bottom housing incorporate elastomeric ribbed rubber pad to prevent the vibration going downwards from the structure.

Applications Of Spring Vibration Isolators:
- Cooling Towers: Typically situated on the roof of a building, cooling towers are extremely heavy structures with many variables. A major one includes a shift in operating weight when it is dry versus when it is wet. Another one is wind speed since it is located at such a vantage point. The spring isolator mounts designed by Vibra Systems Inc. are always up to the task as it takes these factors into consideration.
-Chillers: These are complex systems designed for temperature control in commercial buildings. The location of the chiller in the building, its mounting, the speed of equipment as well as wind and seismic activity have to be considered before selecting an appropriate vibration-damping mount.
-OtherHVAC Equipment: These include heating devices, ventilation equipment as well as air-conditioning equipment that are a must or installed in most residential and commercial buildings. Our spring mount isolators offer efficient isolation from both vertical and horizontal forces.
All Vibrasystems Inc Spring Vibration Isolators have horizontal and vertical load testing calculation and analysis by an independent laboratory. Actual testing versus calculations is a prefered method of the design.
All spring mounts specifications contains rated load, deflection at the rated load and overload capacity calculations.
Outside Spring Diameter is designed to have not less than 80 percent of a height of the comressed spring at the rated load as per building code.
Each spring can travel for at least 50 percent more than the rated load before it can be fully closed.
Baseplates of all models are factory drilled to accomodate safe and efficient installation of the spring mount to the structure or flooring.
Is there a difference between vibration isolator and vibration damper?
Both terms are often used interchangeably but isolator and damper have a different meaning. Vibration isolator helps in preventing transferring a vibration to the structure while vibration damper is helping to dissipate the vibration energy.
