While in operation, machines excite solid objects and machine components, generating oscillations. This in turn leads to secondary airborne noise or structure-borne noise, resulting in noise and vibrations. These vibrations have negative effects on the surrounding manufacturing and quality processes as well as the adjacent areas and environment.
Getzner therefore recommends a tailored vibration isolation solution made from polyurethane materials for machines and plants. The elastic bearings made from Sylomer® and Sylodyn® reduce emissions to an acceptable level and thereby ensure a more peaceful environment.
New construction and renovation of two hydroelectric power stations directly adjacent to a planned residential development
Vibration isolation while complying with more stringent emissions requirements
Reduction of the structure-borne noise from the power station machinery by the requirement amount
„The measurements taken while the plant was in operation have shown that the transfer of structure-borne noise has been reduced to a minimum using the highly elastic Sylomer® materials. The residents of the neighbouring domestic properties no longer notice any disruptive vibrations, and the same is true for the newly constructed power plant.“Ralph Egeter, St. Gallisch, Appenzellische/Kraftwerke AG Head of Power Projects
