ABOUT RUBBER DESIGN
Established in 1979 Rubber Design is one of the international leading specialists in offering solutions for vibration, noise and shock related problems.
Rubber Design specialise in anti-vibration technology by combating vibration and noise problems by isolating the source of the disturbance. With accurate calculation of data and a commitment to ‘solving any problem’ enables Rubber Design to effectively apply the latest standard of product and to embrace the development of unique bespoke solutions should the need arise.
With a outstanding product portfolio in vibration and shock control, Rubber Design are able to a variety of applications within the Maritime sector, ranging from:
- Engine manufactures
- Exhaust gas systems
- Navy Ships
- Custom build for super yachts
MIT represent Rubber Design in the UK and are proud of this strong relationship, tailoring our customer needs with Rubber Design solutions for a variety of applications.
Anti Vibration Mounts
Rubber Design anti-vibration mountings are vibration and noise insulators suitable for a variety of vibration producing machinery, including internal combustion engines, generator sets, pumps, compressors, centrifuges and also instrument panels, switch boxes and control cabins.
Two types of anti-vibration mountings are available:
- Steel spring isolators
Multi-purpose mounts allow mobile applications on trucks and on board of ships. They achieve an optimum result and are maintenance free.
Steel spring isolators are designed for land based installations with high vibration isolation. Typical applications for the standard mountings are for example generator sets, air conditioning machines and electrical equipment.
The medium and heavy duty isolators are designed for industrial machinery such as fans and shredders, boilers and even complete power plants.
Conical and Sandwich Mountings
Rubber Design’s range of conical mountings is designed specially for medium speed engines providing high deflection and load capacity combined with long service life.
Although originally designed for main engines, auxiliary engines and generator installations, these mounts are particularly versatile and can be equally used for exhaust gas boilers and silencers and structural suspensions.
This mounting is an excellent isolator against structure borne vibration and noise, passive isolation.
Exhaust bellows & Compensators
Rubber Design develops and produces a wide range of bellows and compensators that provide the compensation of thermal or mechanical movements, absorption and isolation of vibration, noise and shock.
There are two types of stainless steel expansion bellows:
Single bellows units are used to absorb axial movement, while double units are used where lateral movement is present. Rubber Design supplies a stainless steel bellows with a low stiffness, which achieves in combination with the flexible suspension, the best control of vibrations and forces in pipe systems which provides optimal lifetime.
Rubber compensators are of the highest quality to guarantee maximum safety and performance. This has developed in to a wide range of range of products that over the years have proven their quality and durability for cooling water, fuel and lubrication oil pipe work systems.
