Today we want to stress the importance of choosing correct material for your application. We just visited a brand-new vessel where the ship owner had spared no expenses – except on vibration isolation.
The picture shows a rubber hanger that carries the exhaust pipes from one of the main engines. The exhaust is normally around 400 degrees Celsius, meaning the hanger (and its elastic elements) must endure high temperatures. Vibratec has a complete range all metal hangers for hot pipes – we have done complete solutions for exhaust pipe suspensions since 1988.
