Converyor Belt Vibration Solution

Conveyor Belt Vibration Solution

Mission Sales and Supply has recently seen an increase in the number of customers that are utilizing their mounts in their conveyor belt systems.  The companies who design and build the conveyor systems for these companies do not supply vibration isolators for the conveyors after production.  These conveyor belt systems experience a lot of wear and tear from operating constantly throughout the day.  The vibration isolators are one of the items that needs to be constantly maintained and replaced, if necessary.  

The mounts that these companies are purchasing for their conveyor systems are our Metalastik Retangular SAW mounts.  Here is a list of the mounts that are currently being used by these companies.

Part Number Max Load in Compression Max Load in Shear
31/0242-45 (Blue)
990 lbs. 264 lbs.
31/0242-55 (Red)
1,496 lbs. 297 lbs.
31/0242-60 (White)
1,980 lbs. 330 lbs.
31/0242-70 (Orange)
2,310 lbs. 330 lbs.

In order to determine the correct mount you just need to know the weight of a particular section of your conveyor and the number of mounting positions that you have to isolate the vibration.  Divide the total weight by the number of mounting position and this will give you the amount that each vibration isolator will need to be able to handle.  For more exact information on these mounts, visit this specifications page for the Metalastik Rectangular SAW.

Mission Sales and Supply keeps a pretty healthy inventory of each of these mounts.  Contact us and let us know what you are looking for.  We can give you information on pricing and stock levels direct from our website and we can answer any questions that you might have in regards to these vibration isolatorsVibration Control is an issue that needs to be done right.
