DS mounts are fail safe marine engine mounts that have a higher profile than DH mounts, the high profile rubber section produces larger deflections and low natural frequencies. These marine engine mounts work the rubber in shear and compression. DS mounts are designed for applications where maximum vibration isolation is a priority such as in rotating or mobile machines that are continuously subjected to shocks.
These mounts perform well in environmental conditions where dripping oil, diesel and harsh elements are present.
Stainless steel (304) metal is available for corrosive environments.
CAD 3D drawing files are available for these mounts. Please call or email to request access. Access here.
DS Mount Properties
The protective metal cover has a cross-shaped indentation which enhances its rigidity in mobile applications and improves its ability to resist against oils or liquids which splash onto it, allowing them to flow off of the mount.
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 DS mounts have an anticorrosive treatment which is suitable for demanding outdoor applications where harsh environmental conditions are present. This treatment is RoHs compliant.
The base of DS mounts are engraved with the hardness. DS mounts an interlocking metal component which provides fail-safe protection for mobile applications. This device limits vertical movement when the mount is submitted to shock inputs.
Applications include: Diesel and Gas Generator Sets, Marine Auxiliary Engines, Centrifuges, Mobile Machines, Industrial and Diesel Boat Engines and Motors.
