Up until the 1950’s most rubber mountings were designed to take the load in shear. Mountings were circular or sold in long strips, so the capacity could be controlled by size and durometer, or durometer and the cut off length.

Shear loading curves are straight line similar to steel springs. The deflection can be used directly in the frequency equation after dynamic stiffness correction. Unfortunately, shear mountings could and did fail because of bond failure between the rubber and metal. When overloaded, the mountings would bottom out. Compression mountings are less expensive for a given capacity and when overloaded, there is still a cushion. When loaded conservatively, the load deflection curve is similar to the straight line shear.

The general configuration of our N mountings was known, but all mountings were manufactured as at the right and seldom taller than 1”. Both the base plate and the upper tapped washer were exposed and they corroded. As foolish as it seems now, we cemented a rubber pad to the baseplate to provide friction. Since greater efficiency can only be accomplished by increasing deflection, when double deflection was needed, two mountings were bolted together. This was another makeshift arrangement.

Want to fix your own HVAC - It may be illegal....

13 Home Improvements That Are Illegal to DIY

Repairing or replacing an HVAC system is risky. While it may be tempting to fix it yourself, it’s probably best if you don’t. Freon leaks are dangerous, causing dizziness, asphyxia, and other respiratory problems. Air conditioning and heating maintenance calls for a licensed professional who has undergone a rigorous training and certification process. Plus, a manufacturer may void your warranty if you, a homeowner without appropriate licensing, were to work on the system.

HEPA Air Filtration system

The 3-stage filtration cartridge is contained and protected in a durable steel box. In stage-one, a foam pre-filter captures large particulate matter. In the second stage, the HEPA filter traps more of the harmful and irritating particulate like pet dander, pollen and smoke. Finally, in the third stage, the activated carbon adsorbs chemical or gas-based pollutants. 

The filters are easy to access and change. Once locked into place, the filter is completely sealed, ensuring that no polluted air escapes from the box. The baked thermostat powder finish on the box itself provides a durable, long-lasting housing that will not off-gas chemicals, providing truly clean air to the surrounding environment. 

Though continuous operation is recommended for optimal indoor air quality, this unit does feature an illuminated on/off switch. 

There is an optional VOC filter upgrade available for this unit.


Features & Benefits:

• No effect on AC blower
• Insulated cabinets for whisper quiet operation
• Low maintenance, HEPA cartridges can last up to five years depending on the environment being filtered
• Energy efficient due to effective design and quality motors
• Our Microcon filtration systems are constructed out of durable steel and finished with baked on powder coat paint
• Environmentally friendly
• VOC Canister contain carbon with 1,705,000 m2 of absorbent surface area for capturing chemicals

Wireless Hygrometer

The WHP1 displays temperature split and psychrometric calculations on the “Air Side” screen in the App. The WHP1 features the thinnest probe at 1⁄4” diameter, which means smaller drill holes than current probes on the market. The magnetic mount holds the WHP1 onto the plenum placing the probe in optimum position for air stream measurements, no adjustments needed.

Wireless Pressure Probe

WPP1 has a pivoting hinge to allow access to connections in tight spaces. The Pass-through fit- ting allows users to connect directly to the probe without additional adapters for a more efficient work flow, saving money on refrigerant and only bringing out the hoses when they’re needed.

Temperature Pipe Clamp

The WPC1 is a thermistor pipe clamp that plugs into the Pressure probe to send its data to the App. The narrow jaw allows users to get onto narrow pipe lengths, while the over-molded tex- ture provides a secure grip. The unique spring design allows for easier opening and closing with- out compromising it’s grasp of the pipe. The WPC1 is compliant to California’s Title 24 standard.

Solid Connection Setting up probes in the App is quick and easy. Once a probe is assigned to a part of the system, it will automatically reassign that probe each time the App is launched. The latest wireless technology allows up to 150 ft. connectivity range pending environmental conditions and if the connection drops, the probe will automatically reconnect to the App.

UEi HUB App The UEi HUB App shows a system’s Liquid and Suction measurements and tem- perature split and psychrometric calculations in an intuitive easy-to-read display. Users can easily select from over 44 refrigerants as well as add or subtract favorites. Customize views to see basic “Air Side” measurements or all info at once. The user-friendly navigation bar allows users to quickly change units or make altitude compensation adjustments for more accurate air proper- ty readings at higher altitudes. The user-friendly navigation bar allows users to quickly change units, reassign probes or get support from the manual, web support or UEI’s customer service.
