KB58: "Mud-Flap" dampening

Category: Control Considerations | Updated: 6/12/2007 8:19:56 AM | Owner: The Professor | Read: 5041 (Last: 9/18/2019 10:13:04 PM)

Resolution

One of the most unique and effective means of dampening material in the most severe conditions is a series of “mud flaps” draped over the material at both ends of the loop. In one application it was found that a single flap took out 50% of vibration, a second flap overlapped like a shingle built the reduction to 75%, and by the fourth flap the bouncing was reduced by 90%. Such an approach is generally used in conjunction with cascade type supports under the stock at the exit of the straightener and entrance of the feed.
