Vibration-damping components are a mature and pretty ubiquitous item – often hidden away inside or under engines, motors, fans or similar. Elesa is including a complete range of damper and cushioning elements with steel and stainless steel base mounting in their catalogue.
Essentially operating in compression or shear, double-ended cylindrical units are often required to carry heavy equipment loads, while on the other hand single-mounting buffers in pad or conical format are suitable for absorbing energy on impact during equipment operation or perhaps door closure or similar.
Elesa’s DVA range is formed in natural rubber based on zinc/steel and AISI 304 stainless mounts with male or female attachments. They have been designed to damp vibrations, shocks and noises produced by moving bodies or vibrating masses which can cause malfunctioning and reduction of the machine lifespan and/or of the adjacent equipment, or even operator damage to health.
The DVA range is available in black natural rubber to standard hardness 55 Shore A, as well as 40 Shore A or 70 Shore A to custom specifications.
