Air actuators isolate disruptive vibrations

Air actuators isolate disruptive vibrations

Even in harsh conditions involving a lot of dust and permanent vibrations, air actuators continue to work reliably, says Contitech. They isolate vibrations in construction machinery and are robust and resistant even in adverse environments. 

“With these properties, they offer added value compared with steel spring bearings or hydraulic cylinders, as disruptive vibrations are largely minimised,” says Verena Weiss, head of industry at Contitech Air Spring Systems.

Air actuators offer significant advantages over compression springs, leaf springs or rubber springs. The low natural frequency in a range of between 1.5 and 3Hz allows the air actuators to achieve a strong isolating effect of up to 98%. In comparison, steel springs in screening machines usually have a natural frequency of 7 to 8Hz and an isolating effect between 65% and 75%, says Contitech.
