How to Avoid Vibration Problems
Vibrations are mechanical phenomenons whereby oscillations transpire around an equilibrium point, which can result in irritating sounds, as well as a waste of energy.
Another side effect could be imbalances in the rotating parts, frictions, misalignment and wear. These drawbacks can also promote the creation of spaces where bacteria can proliferate. In certain industries, this is very dangerous.
If every component of a machine is designed carefully these problems can be avoided.
In order to absorb, reduce or compensate off-axis these vibrations, we have designed an innovative line: SILEND.
They are flexible connectors made in different materials. Easy to assemble and disassemble without tools, made under GMP standards and according to FDA regulations.
Our SILENDs consist of a unique flexible connection element, and 2 flanges (one at each end).
The main characteristics are:
• Different measures to suit your need
• Resists light pressure and vacuum
• Suitable for CIP and SIP (sterilization)
• Tri-Clamp connections according to BS, ISO, DIN standards.
And, of course, there is complete documentation (declarations and certificates).
For the purpose of meeting the needs of our customers, these connections are made in different material such as silicone or silicone UPS class VI, conductive EPDM or white and FKM white.
Advantages of SILEND Line
The advantages of SILEND line are multiple.
For example, safety. It was important for us to eliminate the use of tools in the installation in order to avoid the exposure to risk for the staff.
The type of industry where these connections are used (pharmaceutical, food and chemical) must respect stringent sanitation rules. For this reason, they were designed to grant the highest level of hygiene: there are no gaps that accumulate product. That means not promoting the creation of bacteria.
Moreover, the line is all FDA approved.
Which are the typical applications of these connections?
This line is typically used in pharmaceutical, API, chemical, food and nuclear (TSE/BSE free sectors) field.
