Trelleborg Industrial AVS mounts successfully suppress noise and vibration in Saito separators

Posted: Tuesday 13th September 2011

RAEM high-efficiency anti-vibration mounts from Trelleborg Industrial AVS have been chosen by Saito Separators of Japan for installations that require an exceptional level of isolation and a low noise signature.

The mounts are used on Saito's SKD250S screw decanter, which is designed for liquid/solid separation and heavy slurries. Typical applications include the separation of soy milk and refuse, dehydration and clarification of wheat starch, separation and dehydration of pigments and dehydration of PVC. Noise and vibration from the 720 kilogram machine are kept to a minimum by four RAEM350M12 mounts.

Tony Carter, General Manager Trelleborg Industrial AVS Asia Pacific, commented: “Trelleborg anti-vibration technology has a strong reputation in this region for rail, marine and off-highway applications. Until recently, we have not been so well known for general industrial and static applications but I am glad that this is now beginning to change. Saito is a high-quality company and, like others, it has recognized the benefits of our technology, not only in terms of whole-life costs but also because of the exceptional degree of protection we are able to provide for expensive capital equipment.”

RAEM is one of a comprehensive range of high performance anti-vibration mountings manufactured by Trelleborg Industrial AVS for machines with rotating movements, such as compressors, AC units, fans, generators, large milling machinery, refiners and defibrilators, as well as separators. The mount is suitable for both light and heavy machines and its extra soft rubber compound gives isolation of 85% to 90% at normal speeds of 1500 rpm, whilst also providing good isolation at lower frequencies.

Trelleborg’s RAEM is corrosion-protected to provide good environmental protection and features an integral fail-safe resilient stop. Available in a range of sizes from 10 to 3,400 kilogram capacity, it will accommodate occasional shock loads.

Based in Tokyo, Saito Separators Limited manufactures disc bowl, basket-type and horizontal centrifuges, associated equipment and dryers. The company's products are used in food and chemical industries, where many processes require centrifugal sedimentation technologies to separate a wide variety of different materials.
