The Vibro-Acoustics N & NSN series of vibration pad isolators provides vibration isolation for mechanical and electrical systems and equipment. Available in single and multiple layer versions, these isolators are most effective when used on stiff supporting structures with mid- to high-frequency vibration sources. Vibro-Acoustics’ vibration pads are made with neoprene rubber and are available in any size up to and including 18” x 18” (460 x 460mm) and can support loads up to 14,580 lbs (64.50kN). The pads have orthogonal grooves of alternating heights on opposing sides to improve deflection and therefore increase isolation efficiency. Vibro-Acoustics’ pad isolators are also available with load distribution top plates to accommodate equipment with point-load supports, and with holes to match through-bolt support locations. Neoprene grommet washers are available from Vibro-Acoustics to be used where equipment is bolted down to reduce vibration transmission through the bolts.
Typical applications for the N series pads include indoor equipment with potential for high frequency vibration and no lateral loads. Typical equipment includes boilers, internally isolated air handling units, transformers and high rpm vertical heat pumps.
