Contoured shape ideal for use with microscopes
- Rolling diaphragm isolator removes up to 99 percent of vibrations
- Electroless nickel version meets Class 1
- Ideal for laminar flow cabinets, biohazard areas, cleanrooms
- AMC-7 with sorbothane isolators gives economic isolation
These platforms remove unwanted vibrations which limit the performance of microscopes. Their T-shaped profile allows users to place their arms on either side of the platform, while the rear section is wide enough to accommodate most makes of microscope.
Air platforms are made from aluminum parts and are fully non-magnetic. They meet the most stringent cleanliness requirements, such as Class 1 and are resistant to most forms of biological and chemical attack. Their simple shape makes them very easy to clean. We offer a choice of white epoxy powder or electroless nickel finishes.
Air platform top plates rest on three pneumatic damped rolling diaphragm isolators. Typical building vibrations, which cause the most problems, are the cyclical ones between 7 and 30Hz. These isolators have a natural frequency of around 2Hz and start to effectively isolate vibrations from 7Hz upwards, greatly outperforming simple air cushion and rubber isolators which have much higher natural frequencies.
The isolators are inflated using a conventional bicycle pump. When pressurized the isolators float the platform free from the bench it is placed on and so isolate the microscope placed on top from vibrations present on the worksurface via a cushion of air enclosed by the rolling diaphragm.
The AMC-7 has three elastomeric isolators which give good isolation above 20Hz and features a white epoxy finish over a steel base.
