Re: Vibrating Equipments

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If the equipment can producing vibration that has to be contended with 
design, the equipment manufacturer will provide the forces for which supports 
should be designed for.  Ask the manufacturer about his experience with the 
typical foundation for similar installations.

Incidentally, many of the so called "vibration producing equipment" do not 
produce serious dynamic loading on the foundation.  For example, many of the 
compressors can be installed on a nominal concrete pad.  If you have more 
information about the refrigeration equipment, please let me know.
