Flange mount bearing offer reliable vibration isolation

When it comes to isolating vibration, controlling shock and reducing noise associated with equipment and machinery vibration, flange mounts perform extremely well in all three regards. Flange mounts are also sometimes referred to by other names like safetied tube mounts, 500 series mounts, all altitude mounts and low profile mounts. No matter which name they go, they offer the same reliable vibration isolation and control.

The Vibro-Isolator series is particularly effective in applications where there are dynamic vibrational forces at play in multiple directions. That is because they can control the vibration from all directions. These flange mounts also offer superior protection against structural borne vibration. Their axial to radial stiffness ratio is close to 1 to 1. This means that they can bear both axial and radial loads. Indeed, Vibro-Isolators support axial loads ranging from 20 pounds (9 kg) all the way up to 2600 (1180 kg) pounds.

Where are these types of mounts most commonly encountered? Some the many applications include marine engines, shipping containers, lift trucks, trucks, farm equipment, generators, shipping containers, transportation,unt bearing  construction, rail, portable equipment, compressors, military applications, off highway, machinery, pumps and centrifuges, trailers, radiators, engines, cabs, HVAC, fans and blowers.

For those charged with installation, one of the best properties associated with flange mounts is that they are easy to mount. In fact, if a snubbing washer is used, the mounting process is virtually foolproof. Installation takes place through the mounted equipment’s support structure. A mounting hole through the support enables such installation.

Another attractive feature of these flange mount bearing is that they are competitively priced in comparison to other vibration control options. What’s more, users will enjoy a long service life with little to no maintenance required over the flange mount’s lifespan. As a side benefit, flange mounts reduce structure-borne noise at the same time they are controlling the vibration that causes such sound. As a result, they have the added advantage of helping to protect the hearing of those who routinely work in vibrational-heavy jobs.
