Infab Foundation Isolation Material to Reduce Vibration
Fabreeka Infab vibration isolators are composed of a molded elastomer, which has been designed to offer low frequency isolation and high load capacity. Infab solutions are used under large concrete foundations supporting heavy machinery, buildings, measuring machines, roller mills and similar equipment.
Infab type "T" isolators are available in two types to suit a wide range of design options when considering the formwork required to provide proper support during the foundation construction process.
Infab isolation panels are placed on the pit floor in large sections for easy installation prior to the installation of rebar. No additional forming is required.
Infab isolators may be supplied as individual units (blocks) or as isolation panels to facilitate ease of installation.
Infab isolation panels can be designed to have natural frequencies from 7.0 Hz to 10.0 Hz (6% damping) by custom designing the physical size and thickness of the isolators.
Type 1T and 2T isolators support loads from 800 lbs (3,600 kg) to 2,500 lbs (1,125 kg) each and have natural frequencies of 6.0 Hz to 9.0 Hz, with damping in the range of 2% to 6%.
The InfabTM "T" series isolator's unique design utilizes a steel coil spring inside oil/ozone resistant neoprene. The spring portion of the isolator provides a low natural frequency, while the elastomeric/neoprene portion provides damping.
The prefabricated InfabTM isolation panels are supplied to the job site marked per the supplied layout drawings, so that preparation on site is kept to a minimum. The panels with isolators attached are designed by Fabreeka® engineers who calculate the required support span distance between isolators based on the total supported load.
