Low Frequency Elastomer Isolators
Socitec products are engineered to provide superior protection in any environment.
These Low-Frequency Elastomer Isolators from Socitec US are particularly effective in cases of steady-state noise isolation generated by rotating machines, (generators, pumps, motors, compressors, turbines, fans, etc.).
These products cover a wide range of loads, sizes, and preferred applications. These include the BFB, BFC, BFN45, and BF45 mounts. BFB/BFC are generally preferred for road transportation due to their low profile and high capacity, and the BFN45/BF45 are preferred for naval shock applications (MIL DTL 901e) due to their high deflection capability.
NOTES ON ELASTOMER ISOLATORS
Elastomer isolators can offer excellent vibration isolation, but the viscoelastic material is sensitive to environmental conditions such as high temperatures and the presence of corrosive substances like oils and lubricants. These conditions can accelerate the aging process of the material and the long-term settlement of the isolator, known as creep.
If you have concerns about your application environment and the use of elastomer isolators, please contact Socitec US for assistance from one of our engineers.
