Wire rope isolators can be used for motors and fans that produce vibrations onto surrounding structures. They can also be used to control vibration and thermal expansion.
They are used for shipping delicate items across the ocean or across town. They isolate vibrations and shock from a truck, shipping vessels, or other vehicles so vibration is not transmitted into the delicate cargo.
Different materials allow wire rope isolators to be used in many different applications, including corrosion resistant areas with stainless steel rope and aluminum bars. Other environments where they can be used is where they might come into contact with chemicals, ozone, oil, temperature extremes, and abrasives.
Wire rope isolators can be applied in many defense and industrial applications as they carry standards DEF-STND 0755, MIL-STD-810, BV43-44, MIL-STD-167, STANAG-042, MIL-S-901, and MIL-E-5400.
