Vibratherm Adjustable Chock

REYNOLDS-FRENCH now offers a pre-cast, ready to use chocking system with most of the same advantages of pourable epoxy chocks plus the added advantage of being adjustable for hot alignment situations. Vibratherm, a two-piece, two-inch, precision-ground split epoxy chock with .035" S.S. shims, sits on a hot-rolled steel soleplate with two jack bolts for easy installation and support while grouting.

VIBRATHERM ADJUSTABLE CHOCK SUPPLIED BY REYNOLDS FRENCH

 

Vibratherm Diagram

Vibratherm

Horizontal movement resistance, due to the high friction coefficient between Vibratherm and metal (frame above and soleplate below), allows equipment to operate smoother. Vibratherm also allows equipment to operate smoother. Vibratherm also allows free air space and the epoxy composition of the Vibratherm acts as an insulator to greatly reduce heat build-up from the engine frame to the foundation. Vibratherm chocks will not fret the bottom of the frame. Also available as split steel chocks. (See illustration.)

 

ADVANTAGES OF VIBRATHERM CHOCK

Adjustable two piece chocks allow shimming up or down, to compensate for "hot alignment" problems

Two inch thick shimmed chocks provide free flow of air to minimize effects of "thermal humping" on crankshafts...and reduce heat 35 to 50F on steel soleplates embedded in Chockfast RED.

Chocks machined to 0.001" tolerances and held by bolts through the chock halves, allow fast alignment corrections if necessary.

Unique dual-purpose level-lift bolts assist in relieving machinery weight on two piece chocks for easy insertion or removal of shims.

Chocks and soleplate are slotted for easy installation.

Patented design*  provides greater resistance to horizontal forces than conventional steel chocks.

Excellent vibration damping; superior chemical resistance.
