This mount is used when conventional rubber metal mounts do not offer sufficient stability to the suported equipment.
The advantage of this engine mount is that it is a high-damping elastic compound. Its special mix affords it a high degree of anti vibration isolation and offers great stability to suspended equipment
This engine mount has been specially designed to insulate engines that produce high-amplitude vibrations, for example small engines of 1, 2 and 3 cylinders which are particularly unstable.
Diesel engines require MD mounts, particularly when they have few large-diameter cylinders, which makes the engine create high-amplitude vibrations, therefore requiring extra damping to correct these high amplitudes.
These mounts are popular in marine engines.
