2.01

ACCEPTABLE MANUFACTURERS A. The Contractor shall submit to the Supervising Engineer the names of three manufacturers and their products which will be acceptable under this Section. Approval of the manufacturer or product must be obtained before proceeding with associated work. Units shall be the product of a Manufacturer regularly engaged in the production of these units and issuing complete catalog data for same. Items of same function and performance are acceptable in conformance with applicable sections.

INERTIA BASES A. B. Type A: Integral structural steel fan and motor base with motor slide rails. Type B: Slung structural steel base with gussetted brackets. To assure adequate stiffness, the height of the members shall be minimum of 8% of the longest base dimension or 150 mm minimum. Type C: Reinforced 20.682 MPa (3,000 psi) concrete base with full depth perimeter structured channel frame with gussetted brackets and anchor bolts. To assure adequate stiffness, the height of the members shall be minimum of 8% of the longest base dimension or 150 mm minimum. Type D: Reinforced 20.682 MPa (3,000 psi) concrete base with chamfered edges without channel frame. To assure adequate stiffness, the height of the members shall be minimum of 8% of the longest base dimension or 150 mm minimum.

VIBRATION ISOLATORS A. Type 1. Neoprene mounts, incorporating completely enclosed metal inserts to permit bolting to the supported unit and to the foundation. Where the equipment is not integral, or where the overhang is greater than 25 percent of the bolt span, rigid steel members shall be used to spread the mount spacing, thus assuring stability. Type 2. Precompressed molded rubber isolation pads, bitumen jacketed and stabilized during manufacture. Pads shall be sized for 276 KPa-414 KPa loading. Where the equipment base does not provide a uniform load surface, steel plates shall be bonded to the top of the pads. Type 3. Freestanding, unhoused stable spring mounts, incorporating leveling bolts and 6.44 mm thick neoprene jacketed fiberglass noise isolation pads. To assure stability, the minimum outside spring diameter shall be as tabulated, and the springs shall have a minimum additional travel of 50 percent between the design height and the solid height.
