Stackable rings, anti vibration and shock.
The BATRA® ring comprises a rubber ring bonded to two metallic washers one with a circular groove, the other with a mating circular ridge which allows BATRA® rings to be mounted one on top of another.
BATRA® rings may be used:
► For making suspensions that are very flexible vertically and also damped by the natural properties of the rubber (road and rail vehicles).
► For making very effective anti
-shock buffers (wagons, cars, gantries).
For special applications, where the quantities would justify custom manufacture, it is possible to supply Special BATRA® rings either with only one bonded lower armature or “all rubber”.
For special cases of shock, there are Special BATRA® rings with overlapping, non
The design of the BATRA® ring gives the following basic characteristics:
► Behaviour identical to that of a metallic spring plus damper.
- well behaved under shock.
- removal of the risks of suspension collapse.
► Flexibility easily tailored by stacking BATRA® rings.
► Transverse creep limited by the two bonded armatures..
