KINETICS TITAN Modular Seismic and Wind Restraint Vibration Isolator is comprised of two interfacing but
independent elements; two or more high deflection, free-standing, housed, large diameter, laterally stable steel
springs, and a seismically rated housing. The steel springs are replaceable without having to lift or otherwise
remove the supported equipment. The seismically rated housing is available in three (3) housing sizes engineered
to resist nominal restraint forces of 0.5G, 1.0G, and 2.0G based on the max load capacity of the isolator model.
KINETICS unique heavy duty centralized snubber element allows 1/4-inch (6 mm) motion in any direction from the
neutral position. The elastomeric snubber element is replaceable in the field after a seismic event without lifting
the unit off the isolator.
Save time adjusting TITAN leveling bolts in the field with up to 270 degrees of arc swing on two (2) spring models
and 200 degrees of arc swing on four (4) spring models.
The TITAN isolator/restraint is recommended for equipment mounted on a structural frame or concrete inertia base
where the top plate of the isolator can be fully utilized.
The modular design of the TITAN allows it to handle loads up to 23,200 lbs. and provide up to 4-inches of deflection.
As with any seismic restraint or vibration isolation device, direct mounting to light pieces of equipment may not be
possible without an intermediate frame.
Spring isolators shall be comprised of two interfacing but independent elements; a coil spring element
and a seismically rated housing. The spring coil element shall be comprised of two or more coil assemblies
having all of the characteristics of freestanding coil spring isolators as specified in the vibration
isolation portion of the specification.
The seismically rated housing shall be sized to meet or exceed the force requirements applicable to the
project and have the capability of accepting coils of various sizes, capacities, and deflections as required
to meet the desired isolation criteria. The housing shall be hot dipped galvanized for corrosion resistance.
All spring forces will be contained within the coil/housing assembly and under no seismic load condition
shall the restraint anchoring hardware be exposed to spring - generated forces.
The single restraint element shall incorporate a steel housing with elastomeric elements at all dynamic
contact points. The single restraint will allow 1/4 in. (6 mm) motion in any direction from the neutral
position. All elastomeric elements shall be replaceable in the field after an event without lifting the unit.
To ensure the optimum anchorage capacity, the restraint will have an overturning factor (the ratio of the
effective lateral snubber height to the short axis anchor spacing) of 0.33 or less.
The leveling nut or screw shall be accessible and allow up to 270 degrees of arc swing on two (2) spring models and 200 degrees of arc swing on four (4) spring models.
The spring element shall be replaceable without having to lift or otherwise remove the supported equipment.
The isolator/restraint shall be KINETICS TITAN as manufactured by Kinetics Noise Control.
