Genflex Rubber Mountings

Genflex mountings employ the well proven inclined rubber element design to achieve much higher deflections compared to simple rubber in compression devices and therefore superior isolation of low frequency vibration.

The pure rubber design offers excellent performance in the audible frequency range which cannot be achieved with helical steel springs even with so called "noise stop pads".

Natural rubber also offers inherent damping to control transient motion resulting from machine start up, run down and fault conditions.

For marine and mobile applications, a combined overload and rebound buffer is available in both medium and high deflection variants.

Design Features:
  • First grade natural rubber to metal bonded rectangular elements inclined to achieve maximum load and deflection using a combination of compression and shear loading.
  • High strength SG iron castings to BS EN 1563:1997 EN-GJS-400/15.
  • Rubber elements effectively protected against oil contamination by the extended top skirt design of the top casting.
  • Two different horizontal stiffness axes enable optimum system characteristics and vibration isolation to be achieved using careful orientation of the mountings.
  • Marine/Mobile version available with combined overload and rebound buffer.
  • A 6 mm thick ribbed rubber seating pad is available obviating the need for costly HD bolts for many industrial applications.

Typical Applications:
  • Marine Propulsion Engines.
  • Diesel Generating Sets.
  • Engine Test Beds.
  • Lift Motor Gear.
  • Chillers and Cooling Towers.
  • Large Fans and AHU's.
  • Pumps and Compressors.

Application Notes:

Important Notes

For MARINE versions the upper fixing bolt (not supplied) MUST locate to at least 50 mm and not more than 85 mm thread depth.

35 & 75 compound rubber elements are non stock items and therefore to special order only.

Friction Seating Pads

For freestanding applications and installation on uneven surfaces, please specify PT No. 4137 when ordering.
