Rubber mounts are an efficient, low cost option, offering a reasonable degree of isolation efficiency. Rubber mountings come in single of double deflection and are effective isolators in standard non-critical applications.
For more critical applications, consideration should be given to using spring or air mounts.
Selecting the correct rubber mounts
Calculate rubber mount colour according to equipment's weight. Determine machine's RPM and use the Rubber Mount Isolation Efficiency Chart to work out the dynamic natural frequency required, according to the desired isolation efficiency. Next, refer to the Rubber Mount Selection Guide to determine the static deflection required, depending on the Dynamic Factor of the rubber mount to be used.
