Utilcell (Spain) – Utilcell extended the range of their silent-block accessory with lift-off prevention up to 10000kg. Now they are available in 3 range sizes: 300…2,000kg, 3,000…5,000kg and 7,500…10,000kg. They have also 3 kinds of finishing: Zinc plated steel alloy and stainless steel.
These silent-block have a rubber pad which add flexibility in applications like tanks, reactors and machinery, which require a semi-rigid bearing point in case of vibrations, impacts or thermal expansions. This flexibility will help on improving the accuracy because they will absorb structural torsions, deflections or miss-alignments, and, they will reduce force peaks of impacts in respect rigid fixing points, which should be avoided in weighing applications.
“These high capacity silent-blocks are safer because they will increase the fixation between upper part and the load cell due to the presence of a bolt that cross the rubber vertically. This will increase the lift-off and lateral force limits in respect other commercial rubber pads where security depends on fixation between rubber and the metal”, explained Utilcell.
