Machinery Installation Vibration Isolation Noise Control



Isolation for Machinery and Equipment

Industrial facilities often have a need to isolate sensitive equipment from surrounding vibration or shock from other equipment sources. It is often more efficient and less costly to isolate a vibrating machine from it source than it's surrounding environment. Novibra's isolation technology can achieve effective isolation in either of these instances.

Any degree of vibration or shock disturbances will render sensitive equipment such as coordinating measuring machines (picture below) completely useless. The entire function of these instruments relies on unencumbered operation from start to finish.

A common solution is to construct an isolation inertia block which effectively shields the equipment from the transmission of vibration from outside sources. Properly designed and constructed, the inertia block laid on top of the correct isolation mounts or and or pads, will provide protection for sensitive pieces of equipment. The same application will dampen vibration created by machinery and protect the surrounding factory.

Isolation for Buildings and Structures

Subways, trains, streetcars, machinery and equipment - all sources of vibration in buildings and structures. Failure to consider these factors in building engineering may have serious ramifications for building owners and occupants. Novibra's selection of isolation products have proven effective in controlling vibration in demanding environments, including seismic activity.

Recording studios, theaters, and residential apartments around the world have benefited from the use of Novibra products to isolate their foundations from vibration. Using proven engineering techniques and a combination of rubber, composites and steel components, vibration in problem areas can be effectively reduced.

Vibration in buildings cause by outside sources is not just a nuisance - it can dramatically affect the life span and maintenance requirements of the building by degrading the structural integrity of foundations, supporting members and curtain walls.

As well, vibration has a negative effect on human health contributing to stress and other health related problems. Vibration isolation is an important factor in creating a pleasant, safe environment where people can live, work and play in comfort.

If you are planning a building project, or anticipate future problems as a result of subway, rail, or road extensions, consider all your options. WILREP Ltd. has the answers to vibration control problems.
