VICODA - Specialist in vibration control
As a highly specialized company in vibration control and structural bearing technology VICODA Group is engaged in the industrial (oil & gas, power generation, chemical and petrochemical), railway, structural engineering and bridge construction sectors.
Our main fields of applications are:
VICODA provides products and services to mitigate unwanted vibrations. Dynamic forces will be reduced in different plant sections in order to solve fatigue problems and allows a longer service life.
VICODA TMD.Pipe is designed for vibration control of pipes. It is connected directly to the pipe using standard pipe clamps. No fixed abutment is required compared to other vibration control devices. Innovative Eddy Current dampers are used as damping element. TMD for stacks is designed as a ring which is installed at the top of a stack. It will effectively mitigate wind induced vibrations and allow increasing the lifetime of a stack significantly.
VICODA viscoelastic dampers consist of a metal housing filled with a viscous fluid. The piston connected to the top plate can move in all directions within the housing. The characteristic of a viscoelastic damper depends on the piston design and the fluid. VICODA provides three types of fluid: type VD with bitumen; type VM with polybuten and type VI with silicone oil based fluid.
VICODA spring elements are usually composed of three major parts: An upper and lower housing, helical coil springs and a viscoelastic damper. They support the turbine table or machine. For easy installation, spring elements can be delivered pre-stressed to nominal load. The machine is levelled for static loads using shim plates for final adjustment. The system frequency usually has values between 2 and 7 Hz, depending on the application.
