AFM02 Ultra-Soft Mount Design
AFM02 Fan Mount Design. The fan mount has been designed with smoothed corners to prevent the propagation of cracks when stretched. When in position,
the fan is held 1.25mm away from the case side - this is just enough to allow free movement of the fan and effectively absorb vibrations, but not too much to
cause excessive air pressure loss around the fan.
How soft is ULTRA-SOFT? These are the SOFTEST mounts available!
For example, elongation is over 100%.
Why are Fan Mounts Necessary?
Vibration from fan motors can travel into a PC case and become amplified when a fan is screwed tightly to the chassis. This unwanted noise is 'vibrational' or
'secondary', and it is an issue if you wish to build a very quiet or virtually silent PC.
These mounts have been designed & uniquely produced by Acousti Products 'from the drawing-board' specifically to tackle fan-induced vibrational noise!
Ultra-Soft Fan Mounts are a 'no-vibration' alternative to standard fan screws or hard plastic push pins.
To prevent the transmission of vibrations from a motor (such as a fan motor), the vibrating part needs to be decoupled (or disengaged) from the chassis or
case, and the vibrations need to be damped (that is, attenuated). We have selected a ultra-soft silicone polymer that effectively decouples the fan from the
case, and also attenuates unwanted vibration.
The 3-dimensional shape of a fan mount is intimately related to the mount material. A fan mount must be soft enough to be effective but also designed to
securely hold a fan in position. Acousti Products have designed both the shape and materials together to give a widely compatible fan mount that is also the
very softest and most effective available!
Why are these Mounts any better than Others?
We have chosen an ultra-soft silicone polymer because it is softer and more chemically stable than cheaper and inferior alternatives like rubber or EPDM.
Cheaper alternatives can leach oils and tend to more readily degrade over time - they also tend to be more reactive with some plastics (wires etc.) than
silicone. Silicone is non-toxic, more chemically stable, and can also tolerate higher temperatures - so it is a superior material for this particular use.
