Isotech’s steel bases provide a common support for mechanical equipment to increase rigidity and provide a method of attachment for vibration isolators. Steel bases are designed to fit the equipment and are available in any shape and size. Based on the application, steel base designs can work with any of Isotech’s floor-mounted isolators. Applications include indoor and outdoor mechanical equipment without a common support.
CONCRETE INERTIA BASE ICIB
Isotech’s concrete inertia bases are designed to add sufficient mass under the supported equipment to lower center of gravity of overall system. With lowered center of gravity, start-up torque and/or vibration range of motion will be reduced. This arrangement, together with the application of vibration isolators (ICIB) provides vibration isolation. ICIB’s are available in Rectangular, L shape and T shape pump configuration.
ICB can be combined with Neoprene Pads or Spring Isolators with 1”,2”,3” or 5” deflection. When used for seismic applications, seismically rated isolators must be used to provide sufficient resisting force for the lateral load applied to the overall system.
Competitive Advantages: ICIB’s are designed to have vibration isolators at the corners, and inside the steel frame. This would require minimum footprint for housekeeping pads. For seismic application, where edge distance for the anchor is important, this arrangement and having more distance to the edge of concrete offers a significant advantage.
