Silent Block

Silent Blocks are important component for rolling stock, which are made from premium quality of two concentric steel sleeves with rubber that ensures strong design and construction. The rubber is pushed into the gap between two sleeves in order to fill up the void and vulcanized at constant temperature & pressure.

Moreover, the pressure will be added to ensure maximum dynamic strength as well as endurance. The silent block used in Railways are capable of taking various types of torsional, axial & radial load.



    Types
  • Cylindrical Type Silent Block
  • Collar Type Silent Block
  • Flange Type Silent Block
    Applications
  • Silent blocks are widely used to minimize the load bearing problem in vibrating and oscillating systems.
  • Also, these blocks find application in linkages in various types of Railway suspensions, Railway Carriages, Couplers and Center Pivot etc.
    Salient Features
  • Pressurized to give maximum strength & endurance.
  • It comprises two concentric steel sleeves enabled with rubber that is securely bonded between them.
  • The molten rubber is pushed inside space between two sleeves are vulcanized at steady pressure and temperature.
  • Specially designed for torsional movement, axial & radial load.
