Tanks (such as expansion tanks) often do not have allocated mounting "feet" for extreme event applications. Vibro-Acoustics' seismic mounting brackets should be utilized at three to four locations around the base. Depending on the tank location and size, wall straps and custom tank cages could be required.
Vibro-Acoustics’ Seismic Equipment Restraint Brackets are a series of standardized steel brackets formed to match most equipment base support frames and pre-drilled to facilitate securing floor-mounted equipment against seismic forces.
The brackets are designed for a wide range of seismic forces and include rubber grommet washers as appropriate to minimize shock forces at anchor locations – helping to ensure that the tank not only stays in place during and after an extreme event but also remains operational.
The neoprene grommets also help minimize vibration transmission through the brackets which are commonly used in conjunction with Neo+ neoprene pad isolators.
