Air Compressor Anti-Vibration Components
Vibration is bad news for air compressors. Prolonged and excessive vibration tends to increase compressor wear, push up maintenance costs and increase the risk of compressor downtime. Excessive vibration can also propagate along the compressed air system, affecting the air tool at the end of the pipework. That can be especially damaging if the compressor is powering a precision machine.

Compressors can present a complex cocktail of lateral and rotational forces, compounded by the potential for resonance along the compressed air system pipework. Whilst Fibet’s rubber mountings are not designed to be a substitute for regular compressor maintenance, which can help to eliminate sources of vibration, they can dramatically reduce the effect of vibrational forces.
Right now, Fibet’s products are being applied to air compressors to:
- Reduce vibration
With a range of pedestal mounts in numerous rubber compounds, you can achieve the ideal combination of vertical and shear force dampening for your compressor. Although vibration is a natural by-product of a compressor – and particularly a reciprocating compressor – vibration can also be caused by wear, damaged bearings and imbalances in the rotating parts. Fibet’s mounts will isolate vibration caused by these and other mechanical sources, help inhibit early wear of the compressor and prevent the compressor ‘walking’ across the surface on which it sits.
- Reduce noise
Compressors are never the quietest of power sources, but excessive vibration can increase the noise generated, making working near the compressor uncomfortable.
Fibet’s anti-vibration compressor mounts reduce vibration related noise, helping to reduce distraction and protect workers.
