Pneumatic Machinery Mounts - SLM Series
Barry SLM Series Pneumatic Elastomeric Mounts
Pneumatic Isolation Solution at an Affordable Price
These isolators use an air spring elastomeric isolator with integral heavy wall construction. The rigid wall design of the air mount provides better isolation than traditional air bladder design, delivering 96% vertical isolation and 98% horizontal isolation at 10 Hz. Once filled with air they are virtually maintenance free.
Hutchinson SLM mounts are proudly made in the USA. Hutchinson (formerly Barry Controls) has been an industry leader in shock and vibration mounts for over 75 years. Barry Controls developed these pneumatic mounts (in production in America for 50 years) to meet industry needs for high performance vibration isolation in a manageable space envelope.
Pneumatic isolators such as the Hutchinson SLM series allows for excellent vibration isolation performance in a reduced envelope because the air mount relies on air pressure to support the load. These low frequency vibration isolators reduce transmitted vibration much more efficiently than other types of equipment mounts. For example – a typical pump mounted on pneumatic isolators with a natural frequency of 3 hz will provide 97.5% isolation compared with 85% vibration reduction on a 10 hz mount. This improves the performance of all sensitive equipment in the area (and provides greater acoustic isolation as well).
SLM Pneumatic Leveling Mounts allow for easy adjustment and leveling of sensitive production and measurement equipment.</p?

Air Spring and Elastomeric Neoprene Material Provides Superior Isolation
SLM mounts also offer excellent protection against high static deflection, drift and permanent set, thanks to the combination of resiliency of the material and air spring. Neoprene elastomer has an operating temperature range of -20°F to +180°F (-30 °C to +82 °C) and is resistant to oils, most solvents and ozone. The isolator itself will have natural frequency in 3-5 Hz when inflated, however, even if there is no air pressure the isolator still has natural frequency as low as 10 Hz. SLM isolator mount is your ideal solution for machinery and equipment isolation.
Technical Performance Data
SLM series compact air isolator mounts are ideal for applications requiring higher deflection isolators. The SLM’s mechanical bond design incorporates a positive locking system to ensure performance and safe operation. It's robust mechanical design and reliable performance makes it the ideal choice for applications such as Industrial equipment, tools and machinery.
