Vibration Attenuation Characteristics of Victaulic Couplings

Posted on March 18, 2016

The March-April 2016 issue of Southeast Asia Building Magazine featured a contributed article written by Dave Hudson, Senior Engineer at Victaulic. The article explains the use of Victaulic flexible couplings to attenuate vibration in piping systems. Supported by results of tests run at NASA’s Vibration and Acoustic Test Facility, the piece demonstrates that Victaulic flexible couplings perform better to attenuate vibration than double sphere rubber bellows or stainless steel braided pump connectors.
