Shock Control through acoustical Isolation products

When machinery is running there will be vibration as well as static and if they are not kept under control, there is the definite possibility of shock. But the unfortunate part is that such problems are not detectable before the purchase and installation of the equipment. The problems start soon after you experience the trembling of the floors and shaking of walls revealing the obvious problem. It is however fortunate that, today products are available for controlling shock and isolating vibration and even those who were not well informed about such possibilities early enough can avail them and use them to good effect.

Owing to its properties of vibration dampening and resistance to static, rubber is among the most effective materials for controlling shock. More important, rubber products as vibration isolation products and controllers of shock are easily available for ready installation.

To know how this works, you should first know how shock is originated. Putting it in general terms, shock in generated when high-speed machines work at a speed of 600 or higher reciprocating strokes per minute. The reciprocating motion of the equipment generates shock.

We can examine the types of machinery that are likely to need isolation the most. Presses, forges and shears, are few examples of machines that have shock control as the main problem as against vibration control due to their speeds of rotation of about 250 revolutions per minute (rpm) or more. The reason is that these types equipment use a considerable quantity of energy with every stroke.

Inexperienced machine operators erroneously believe that vibration control and shock control are the same and so can be managed together, but in reality they are two considerably different objectives. While vibration disturbance takes place in the steady state, shock disturbance does not. Rubber isolation control shock by absorbing and storing it as it gets emitted by the equipment. One particular shock mount, acts by converting any sudden shock applied on it by the machinery into a force of smaller magnitude gradually.

The definition of shock control or shock isolation according to mechanical engineers is the applying of an isolating gadget (like a shock mount or rubber isolation) to minimize the shock impact on a mechanism (like a piece of equipment or machinery). The isolator absorbs the extra energy employed by the mechanisms, reducing the harmful consequences that they are subjected to.

Let us see what takes place when the energy is being absorbed. The energy absorbed by the rubber isolation gets released at a rate much lesser than the rate of absorption. The shock control isolation does this in four stages: 1) It deflects the shock; 2) collects the impact; 3) stores the shock; and last 4) discharges the shock as per its natural frequency.

The reason or choosing rubber as the material for manufacturing the products for shock control like mounts and isolators is its ability to absorb small-scale shocks. For heavier impacts from larger equipment, the ideal shock isolators are those manufactured from steel, plastic and special polymers.
