BA and Double U-Shear are equally suitable for isolating vibrations from low speed machines and equipment, protecting sensitive and light weight units from external shocks and vibrations. The mountings utilize bonded rubber in shear to permit relatively high deflections, providing excellent isolation of low frequencies. (Type BA 20/2 is a half section suitable for very light loads).
On rotating equipment applications the soft axis should be at right angles to the shaft. On mobile applications the stiff axis should be aligned in the direction of travel. For transit case applications the mountings need to be arranged so that the horizontal stiffness is the same in all directions.
Typical applications include:
• Light fans and compressors
• Portable gensets and pumps
• Computers and electronic units
• Measuring and test equipment
