Vibration Control

Vibration control refers to the measures taken to reduce the amount of vibration in a mechanical or structural system. Uncontrolled vibrations can lead to structural damage, equipment failure, and even pose a threat to human safety. Vibration control is, therefore, an important consideration in a wide range of applications, including industrial machinery, transportation systems, buildings, and bridges.

There are various methods of vibration control, including passive and active vibration control techniques. Passive techniques involve the use of materials and structures designed to dampen or absorb vibrations, such as vibration isolators, rubber pads, and shock absorbers. Active vibration control techniques, on the other hand, involve the use of sensors and actuators to detect and counteract vibrations in real-time.

Vibration control is critical in applications where precision is required, such as in laboratory experiments, microelectronics, and precision machining. It is also essential in the aerospace and defense industries, where high-performance components are subject to extreme environments, including high levels of vibration.

Overall, vibration control is a vital aspect of engineering design and maintenance. By ensuring that mechanical and structural systems operate smoothly and efficiently, it can help to prevent costly repairs, extend the lifespan of equipment, and improve safety for operators and users.

Expansion Bellows:

Expansion joints and Bellows are specially designed for industrial and commercial installations using, piping which requires expansion / contraction or movement joints to deal with thermal expansion, vibration, water hammer or ground movement.

Expansion Joints & Hoses are installed in Piping Systems connected to:

Pumps
Chillers
Air Handling Units
Fan Coil Units
Generators
Exhaust systems
Engines
Flue Gas Pipelines

Spring Isolators:

Equipments like Pumps, Chillers, Compressors, Generators, are examples of Floor Mounted Equipment that transmit internal vibratory forces directly to the support structure.
By inserting isolators between the machine and supporting structure, the magnitude of transmitted vibration is greatly reduced.

Selection of Isolator Models depend upon :

Equipment Type
Installation Location
RPM
Number of Mounting Points & Point Load 

Neoprene Isolators:

These are mostly used for machine tools, production equipments, heating and ventilation equipments, pumps, generators, compressors, air handling units, fans, under heavy equipment, electronics or sensitive laboratory apparatus, business machines, computers and data processors etc

Seismic Isolators:

The term “seismic” refers to the forces related to the motions of an earthquake. These forces interact with a structure in a random fashion – predominantly horizontal, often with directional emphasis & sometimes with a considerable vertical component. Seismic isolation helps protect equipment by not amplifying the seismic input.
Seismic restraint is designed to keep equipment attached to a building structure so that it does not become a projectile.

Acoustic Isolations:

To achieve Sound Isolation, Floating Floors are the most effective way of reducing sound transmission and vibration from the floor above.

Isolated walls are also an effective way to reduce sound transmission between rooms.

These are applications for Hotels, Music Recording Studios, Theatres, Swimming Pools and Gyms.

Vibration Control Content:

Vibration energy from mechanical equipment is transmitted to the building structure and radiated as structure-borne noise.
