DM mounts are fail safe marine engine mounts that are similar in design to the MEM and MEL mounts but are made with a special high-damping rubber compound which gives these mounts a high degree of vibration isolation and a great amount of stability. DM mounts are extremely effective on 1, 2 and 3 cylinder diesel engines where the special high-damping compound provides effective vibration isolation capabilities while also eliminating much of the movement created by 1-3 cylinder engines.
Diesel engines with an uneven number of small diameter cylinders create high-amplitude vibrations which require a mount with extra damping capabilities to limit the high amplitudes. These vibration mounts are typically used when other mounts cannot offer sufficient stability to the affected equipment, they are great for machines that are subject to constant start/stop conditions and that require a high degree of vibration damping and in conditions which are close to the frequency of resonance of the system.
DM Mount Properties
The metal cover also protects the elastomer inside from dripping oil, diesel, ozone and/or ultraviolet rays which can cause major damage to rubber.
All metal parts on DM mounts have an anticorrosive treatment which is suitable for demanding outdoor applications where harsh environmental conditions are present.
DM mounts have an interlocking metal component which provides fail-safe protection for mobile applications. This device limits vertical movement when the mounts are subjected to shock loads in transit.
Stainless steel (304) metal is available for corrosive environments.
