Are there any suitable material to insulate vibration generated by machinery or lightweight equipment?

The rubber is a material that does not have shore harnesses bellow 25 or 30 SnA, that means, it is too rigid for small loads. When we try to cushion lightweight machine with elastomer is necessary applies a material that is not so rigid to absorb vibrations.
You might think that a stiff damper (30 ShA) allows a smaller capacity and therefore would be appropriate, but without the adequate support will be unstable and fragile making the problems more complicated.

VISCOREN is a viscoelastic material presented hardness from 13ShA, which allows us to design appropriate buffers for our lightweight machines (condensing units, fan-coil, electronics, etc) without losing stability and elect a full isolation.


We assume a correct design of the machinery by the manufacturer, what is the main cause of all mechanical misalignments and noise generation problems that occur on the premises?

Every element of a train of equipment generates a series of dynamic forces during operation. Each of these forces will lead to vibration frequencias that will identify the different components of it. From the moment that all components are bonded together, the vibration frequencies of each of them will be transmitted to all it vitually and therefore its supports and anchors. If it is the case of support surfaces and rigid anchors, an important part of the energy received will be returned to the machine itself causing disturbances, fatigue and finallly breakage or mechanical failure and the rest will be transmitted to the support structure causing vibration problems that it could afffect any related facilities as well as sound level enclosures protected, with the consequent generation of serious damaget to health and comfort of the peopple.

If the machinery is supported by anti-vibration elements designed by systems properly selected and installed, much of this energy will be damped and/or dissipated by these elements with the consequet reduction of imbalances and maintenance costs as well as a corresponding decrease in transmision of vibration and noise generation air. Adding to that all-important cost savings of not having to make a correction in an isolation in an laready executed facility and executed and taking into account that level of cost in the total amount of an installation, the share of the isolation is very small and the benefits of the design solutions from basic design and implementacion of these from the inital installation is very interesting. This economic and even ecological way of acting TECNOELÁSTICA call is THE PRE-PROACTIVE as maintenace


Are essential, insulation systems and facilities suportación in machinery, air conditioning etc?

We all know the serious problem of the generation and transmission of noise and vibration in air conditioning and other machinery. If we add these to the serious damage if we add these to the serious mismatch damage of the mechanical elements caused by the generation of the vibrations produced in these facilities with the consequent growth of expenditures for maintenance and failure, we will come inevitably to the conclusion that the isolation and suportacion solutions are essential.


Are there any additional vibration isolation improvement apart of the one for a machines supported by isolater?

Yes, there are significant improvements in various aspects:


  • Reduce aero nose emitted by the machine, specially in low frecuency.
  • Increase the life of the machine.
  • Increase production.
  • Reduce power consumption.
  • Reduce maintenance costs and breakage.
  • Better quality in the finished parts (presses etc).



Is there any particular reason between a machine with vibration and acoustic insulation?

The vibration system installation is closely related to sound insulation, plus of course the vibration isolation.

The installation of machinery and equipment insulators provides a significant reduction in the spectrum noise at frequencies bellow 250HZ, whether or not additional enclosure or caustic treatment.
If the installation of insolator is not adequate to reduce the noise of an acoustic enclosure because It will be not able to optimize all possible and even complete close will have a low frequency noise problems.
