Mounting motors, pumps, gearboxes and other items on LP-13 Shake Absorber® vibration isolation pads can be a very effective way of isolating transmittable vibration and therefore noise radiated by the rest of the structure. This is particularly the case where vibrating units are bolted to steel supports or floors. However, a common error with the use of these pads with bolting is to ”short-circuit” the pad, resulting in no or little isolation. Additional pads must be fitted under the bolt heads as well as sheathing the bolt from the core of the isolation pad - hence, the design of the LP-13 Shake Absorber®Bolt Isolation Kit.
Most installations only require the Standard thickness for ample isolation however, Kellett does offer a Heavy Duty thickness if required.
