22000 Series mounts are designed to withstand the rigors of heavy-duty vehicular applications, off-road equipment, large trucks and construction machinery. The standard neoprene elastomer is resistant to oil. Other materials are available on special order.
Rugged, low profile, high capacity mounts for vibration isolation and shock protection. Recommended for use with off-road equipment, trucks, construction machinery and power generation equipment. Available in a full range of load ratings and sizes.
500 Series mounts are low cost isolators that provide high load carrying capacity, compact size and stability. These mounts are perfect for isolating truck, bus and marine engines.
Rugged, versatile isolator utilizes elastomer-in-shear for low frequency vibration. Best suited for applications that require a low vertical natural frequency in conjunction with impact shock protection and superior structure borne noise attenuation.
Versatile, low cost elastomeric isolators protect against shock & vibration and reduce structure-borne noise in vehicular and industrial applications. Designed for multidirectional vibration isolation, shock attenuation and noise reduction.
Vibration mounts for effective isolation of small to medium sized diesel engines. Barry HR Series mounts are best suited for isolation of diesel engines with five or less cylinders for on or off-highway applications.
Low-profile, high capacity mounts for vibration and shock protection. Barry SLM Series Mounts are pneumatic elastomeric mounts, ideal for applications requiring higher deflection isolators that incorporates a positive locking system for safe operation.
Low-profile, low frequency elastomeric noise and vibration isolators for medium weight industrial equipment. Barry 633A Series Mounts are medium weight mounts normally used for vertically applied loads to prevent transmission of noise and vibration.
Attenuated levelers designed for leveling and aligning sensitive electronic manufacturing equipment. LMS Series levelers feature over .5" of neoprene elastomer bonded to the bottom of the leveler to provide shock-attenuated, non-skid support.
990 and 915 mounts are for applications under light to medium weight industrial machinery requiring noise, shock and vibration isolation and are ideal for applications where structure-borne noise and sounding board effects must be minimized.
The adverse effects of vibration, shock and noise disturbances range from simple annoyances to shortened equipment life, and can negatively affect performance, reliability, comfort and safety of your equipment. Our customizable portfolio of elastomeric mounts and bushings provide simple, reliable and cost-effective solutions to isolate vibration and shock, accommodate motion, and decrease noise.
Vibration isolators, properly applied, will improve your products. They will operate more smoothly and quietly, and they will be less disturbing to surrounding equipment and personnel, less susceptible to damage and less expensive to make. Elastomeric vibration isolators provide cost-effective solutions to problems involving vibration, shock and structural noise control.
Our anti vibration mounts are manufactured to the highest standards with superior materials to extend the life of your equipment. If you need a replacement mount or custom isolator for a specific application, we offer many solutions to reduce vibration, shock and noise. For help sizing a mount, our engineers are available to assist you.
What is Vibration Isolation?
The theory and concepts for elastomeric vibration isolators are relatively straightforward. A great many of the applications are uncomplicated, and a non-specialist can handle them directly. However, some vibration and shock control problems are quite complex, making component selection and design complicated. These more complex applications require the involvement of specialist in order to arrive at suitable recommendations and Hutchinson has a technical staff available to assist you. Learn More.
What are vibration mounts and why are they needed?
Vibration isolation mounts protect machinery by reducing the amplitude and frequency of vibration energy. Applications such as large motors and industrial machines generate powerful vibrations and excessive noise when active. This vibration energy can be disruptive in a work place, or cause quality or reliability issues with nearby equipment
Vibration damping mounts are commonly made with an elastomer such as natural rubber, neoprene, silicone, or EPDM, which is then bonded to metal. We do sometimes use wire mesh, which also acts as a spring for vibration and shock isolation. Using vibration and shock mounts typically improves the service life of the equipment and improves the environment around the equipment.
Marine engine mounts are anti vibration mounts with fail-safe protection that are used in both mobile and stationary applications from diesel generators to industrial engines. Cylindrical mounts also called bobbin mounts are used in lightweight applications for shock and vibration reduction. Stationary machine mounts including: sandwich bar mounts, rubber bumper mounts and low frequency ring mounts provide shock absorption and isolate low frequency vibrations in all planes. Cone and shear mounts including: flex bolt sandwich mounts, interleaf mounts, v shaped generator mounts and motor mounts isolate vibrations in many different applications. Center bonded mounts including one piece, two piece and three piece mounts are used as rubber vibration isolators and can provide flexible suspension systems for equipment. Electrical panel mounts which have built in fail safe protection are used in applications such as electrical cabinets and enclosures.
Stainless steel leveling feet are used in hygienic leveling foot applications in the food, drug and medical industries. Our heavy duty machine leveling feet including anti vibration leveling feet increase stability for machines and limit tipping, vibration, wear and noise. Pipe hanger mounts hang HVAC equipment, machinery, piping and speakers from ceilings while isolating noise, shocks and vibrations. Wire rope mounts made with stainless steel wire rope cable combine a high level of durability with shock and vibration isolation. Our fully bonded bushing mounts come with the rubber bonded to metal and can be made in many sizes.
Typical applications for Barrymounts are: Pumps, Hoppers, Roll Mills, Cameras, CNC Machinery, Military Equipment, Washing Machines, Industrial Boat Engines, Small Electric Motors, HVAC Systems, Vibrating Tables, Aviation Equipment, Compressors, Transformers, Shipping Containers, Defense Equipment, Marine Propulsion Engines, and Electronic control modules.
