Earthquake Protection for Industrial Equipment

GERB has developed a three-dimensional support system for petrochemical and natural gas plants, high voltage transformers and switchgear equipment, as well as for research equipment that is vibration sensitive.

In many cases, earthquake protection is required not only in the lateral directions, but in the vertical direction as well. Helical spring elements with integrated VISCODAMPERS® provide protection in all degrees of freedom and, therefore, offer the best earthquake protection.

GERB research and development has produced a highly effective pipework damper system. This damper protects against seismic and hydraulic shocks on piping that is also subject to thermal expansion and contraction.
