Engineering description

TICO has a long been the vibration control material of choice amongst Engineers and Fabricators alike. The range of TICO products encompasses that whatever the Vibration problem there is a TICO solution at hand.

The TICO range of products includes levelling mounts, Anti-vibrations washers and collards and Anti-vibration pads that can be used on all sorts of engineering equipment such as Lathes, CNC routers, compressors etc. Our technical teams are on hand to provide advice on the most suitable TICO pad and detailed analysis of the level of vibration attenuation you can expect.

Pipe Supports

Deep Water Exploration and production in hostile environments demands the highest quality equipment. That equipment is only as good as the component parts from which it is built, when Tiflex worked with leading offshore specifiers to develop an isolated pipe hanger this philosophy was our starting point.

Clip Strips

Utilising our TICO materials and drawing on many years of experience in the design of load bearing elastomeric components, we have designed this range of products to provide the highest level of shock and vibration isolation between pipe-work and hanger. Available in a comprehensive range of sizes, TICO Clip Strips provide an effective and economical answer to the problem of pipe isolation and anti-vibration.

Tico RF/PA

Originally developed to absorb shock loads under drop hammer anvils, replacing timber packings which would break down unevenly over time and cause the anvil to take on an uneven set. It can also be used as a heavy-duty machinery mounting pad to reduce vibration from large plant, acting as a heavy duty buffer.

Tico S/PA

The most commonly used resilient anti-vibration pad for mounting general plant and machinery. Suitable for the majority of applications where ease of installation and flexibility of plant layout are prime factors on installations.

This anti-vibration pad is compatible with all types of machine base - individual feet, cast skirts or flat base. Operational temperature range -40˚C to 100˚C (-40˚F to 212˚F) and a high load bearing capacity covers virtually all mounting applications.

Slide Bearings - Bondslips

Tico Slide Bearing units accommodate large movements in pipework installations as well as many other types of structure. They are usually comprised of two separate components that act together to provide a plane sliding surface with a low coefficient of friction.

Typical application for a Tico slide bearing is as a pipe support where its low friction characteristics cater for pipe movements, e.g. due to thermal expansion and contraction, without a build up of stress. Tico slide bearing units can also be used as guide stops to restrain movement in one or more directions.
