The custom made cushion vibration isolators are designed for outdoor offshore and marine installations. The cushion vibration isolators are typically used as a trade-off between price and performance.
The steel structure are usually manufactured in steel S355J2G3 and painted according to offshore specifications. All other steel parts are typically in stainless steel AISI 316 covered with wax OKS2000.
The cushion isolators are optimized for medium to high resonance frequency, high environmental demands and external forces such as wind, waves, accidental loads etc.
Depending on the choice of cushions, resonance frequencies from 8 to 15 Hz can be achieved.
The stiffness can be tuned by pre-compressing the builtin snubbers.
This will also add damping to the isolators resulting in a lower amplification factor.
Maximum excitation amplitude: ± 1 mm.
Temperature range: -90 °C to +300 °C.
Elastic suspension of rotating machinery at >1200 rpm – fans, compressors, generator sets, reciprocating machinery etc.
Protection of turbines, accommodation and office modules from vibrations and impacts.
We provide extensive technical support in the use of our products and systems. This can include:
