In the process of deciding on a vibration isolator for a particular application, there are a number of critical pieces of information which are necessary to define the desired functionality of the isolator. Some items are more critical than others, but all should be considered in order to select or design the appropriate product. Some of the factors which must be considered are: Weight, Size, Center-of-Gravity of the Equipment to be Isolated, Location of the Equipment in the building, Mounting of Equipment etc. are some of the key information required to do the selection of appropriate vibration isolators.

A rubber flexible connector is used to provide stress relief in piping systems due to thermal and mechanical vibration and/or movement.
A rubber flexible connector will allow for the following movements:
1. AXIAL COMPRESSION: The dimensional reduction or shortening of the face to face parallel length of the joint measured along the longitudinal axis.
2. AXIAL ELONGATION: The dimensional increase or lengthening of face to face parallel length of the joint measured along the longitudinal axis.
3. TRAVERSE OR LATERAL MOVEMENT: The movement or relating displacement of the two ends of the joint perpendicular to its longitudinal axis.
4. VIBRATION: The movement of the joint due to vibrations which are effectively intercepted and insulated against transmission to the remainder of the system.
5. ANGULAR MOVEMENT: The displacement of the longitudinal axis of the joint from its initial straight-line position (a combination of axial elongation and axial compression).
6. TORSIONAL MOVEMENT: The twisting of one end of the expansion joint with respect to the other end about its longitudinal axis.
7. CONCURRENT MOVEMENTS: The combination of two or more of the above listed movements. This value is expressed as the Resultant Movement.
Seismic restraint is reinforcement that is designed to prevent earthquakes from damaging an object.
Damage from falling objects such as ceilings, ducts, pipes and other non-structural building elements poses a significant risk to human safety. Within U.A.E, seismic restraint of these non-structural elements has traditionally been an afterthought.
All new buildings require seismic restraint of non-structural elements to gain building consent, prevent future loss of life, injury and financial loss.
There are several factors involved in determining a level of seismic restraint, these are:
• Geographic location of project
• Subsoil type
• Building type
• Specification requirements
Isolation efficiency is the percent of vibration force or motion that is not transmitted through the vibration mount.
G is the value of acceleration produced by the force of gravity.
Noise is vibration of air. Vibrations of the air typically have a frequency and an intensity (loudness) level. Noise is what you hear with your ear.
In order to be able to reduce disturbing noise levels, it is very important to identify three key elements. The first element is the source of the noise, second is the path and finally the receiver. Another important aspect to be considered is the frequency of the noise. For any noise problem all three elements must be analyzed.
Defined as the number of oscillations per unit time that an external force or displacement is applied to a system, can also be referred to as ‘forcing frequency’. Typically measured in Hz (cycles per second).
Is the frequency at which oscillating system will vibrate if displaced from its equilibrium position and allowed to vibrate freely. Often described as Fn and measured in Hz (cycles per second).
When the frequency of excitation is equal to the natural frequency of a system, resonance occurs. When this happens there is amplification of the vibration input to the system and this can only be limited by the damping in the isolation system.
Describes the amount of shock or vibration that a particular piece of equipment can withstand. Isolation systems are often designed to limit the transmission of forces to the fragility level of the isolated equipment.
Describes the dissipation of energy with time or displacement.
This represents the six directions of movement that a vibration isolation device such as an elastomer or spring isolator is capable of traveling.
