Fabcel Nitrile Pad for Vibration Isolation
Fabcel vibration isolation pad is manufactured using the same nitrile compound developed in 1962. The properties of the Fabcel pad are designed to provide low frequency vibration isolation and reduction of impact shock.
Fabcel nitrile pad has been used for over 40 years for mounting machinery and sensitive equipment where absorption of impact shock or isolation of transmitted vibration is desired. Fabcel pads may be bonded together (“layered”) to achieve the desired isolation efficiency for any application.
Fabcel material is available as isolation washers and OEM parts.KEY FEATURES/BENEFITS
- Fabcel pad can withstand loads up to 300 psi.
- Fabcel pad can have a vertical natural frequency as low as 5.0 Hz and a horizontal natural frequency as low as 3.0 Hz.
- Fabcel pad has a high energy storage rate per unit volume which makes it ideal for certain shock isolation applications.
The unique “cell” (waffle) pattern on the Fabcel vibration isolation pad is specifically designed to maintain the proper shape factor for the pads when under load. This feature allows Fabcel pads to support more load than other rubber pads of the same size and thickness.
Fabcel pads have a damping rate of 6% of critical.
Fabcel pad is made from a nitrile compound and is therefore impervious to most oils and cutting fluids and is resistant to the effects of steam, water, mildew and brine. The effective temperature range is -20°F to 150°F.
