AirLoc 700 Series Damping Pads Used Successfully in Large Municipal Water District Engine/Pump System


AirLoc engineering was contacted to make a recommendation for vibration isolation on a large municipal water district engine/pump system in Sothern California. The 9,000 lb. system was supported on a 3/4 inch steel plate using 6 mounting feet. After initially testing a "soft" pad configuration with too much defection, 715 damping pads and iso-washers were evaluated with a bolt-through configuration as shown in the layout below. Jeff Davis, Industrial Engines Supervisor, made the following comments regarding test results: "The pads made a great improvement. Using a vibration pen we took before and after readings and calculated approximately 85% reduction in vibration. This was definitely a successful project! Thanks for all of your help, and when I have another vibration issue, I now know where to turn!"
