Comparation between the antivibration springs and the rubber bellow cylinders
In this article we are going to make a comparison between the anti vibration springs and the rubber bellow cylinders, specially to analyse the difference between using both products in those applications that aim to reduce vibrations.
Where are the anti vibration springs and rubber bellow cylinders used?
The anti vibration springs can be normally used in screeners or vibrating tables. The rubber bellows cylinders, instead, are commonly seen in paper mills, agriculture machinery, screeners, vibrating tables, textile machinery, etc.
Which are the main functions of the rubber bellow cylinder and the anti vibration spring?
The spring is able to absorb the vibrations and reduce noise. The rubber air bellow can reduce vibrations as well as noise and it is able to work as a pneumatic cylinder with the help of an air supply, expanding the bellow and working as a rubber actuator.
What are the advantages of the rubber bellow cylinder and the anti vibration spring?
Advantages of the rubber bellow cylinder
- Long life cicle
- Low cost, as there is no friction between the parts and no corrosion
- It’s able to absorb up to 99% of the vibrations
- High protection of metal parts
- The air pressure and the vibrations can be regulated
Advantages of the antivibration springs
- Practical use.
- No air supply required.
- Low acquisition cost.
Conclusions of the rubber air bellow cylinders vs the anti vibration springs
After making this comparison, we can see that the rubber bellow cylinder is a more polyvalent product, that in a long term period of time may suppose a low cost to the operator due to its features and components, being able to isolate a higher quantity of vibrations thanks to its capacity to regulate the air supply depending on our requirements.
