In every situation where diesel engines are used, noise and vibrations will be generated. Rubber Design has the experience and solutions to control these vibration and noise emissions from the exhaust system.
Other than through the engine foundation, engine disturbance will also travel along the exhaust system to be transmitted into the vessel wherever the system is in contact with the ship’s structure. By flexibly mounting not only the engine but also the exhaust system, we can control most of these unwanted noise emissions.
Due to our wide range of products we specialize in total-solutions, including flexible suspension, stainless steel bellows, deck penetrations and heat reducing bulkhead penetrations.
Rubber Design combines the benefits of various products, using hanging and standing flexible fixed points as well as stabilizers to reduce the noise and vibration transmission to the ship structure. They also control the thermal expansion to the stainless steel bellows in the exhaust system. We supply stainless steel bellows with a low stiffness, which in combination with our flexible suspension gives the best results. By utilizing our heat reducing (flexible) bulkhead penetrations, exhaust gas pipes are lead through watertight bulkheads and decks. Our unique FiProTex® single pipe penetration is a fireproof sealing system that allows (exhaust) pipes to pass decks without transmitting vibration, noise or heat to the surrounding structure of the ship.
