Isolate Structures During Modal Testing | Model 8032S

stp 8032s airride mount product 1The AirRide Model 8032S provides excellent isolation and support of heavy structures during modal testing. AirRides meet the modal challenge of keeping the mounting (rigid body) frequencies well below the frequency of the first deflection mode. Used extensively in “body-in-white” vehicle modal tests, the unit offers a typical mounting frequency of 2.88 Hz for 650 lbs mass. Since the natural frequency does not vary appreciably with load, several mounts may be used to support a structure, at various points, with good agreement on overall system mounting frequency. AirRides offer the highest degree of isolation of any type of vibration isolator.


  • Provides extremely low mounting frequencies for large test structures
  • Eliminates “chatter” seen in coil springs
  • Eliminates multiple mounting frequencies, since AirRide natural frequency does not change significantly with changes in load
  • Compact in size, light in weight
  • Pressure regulator and gauge


  • Body-in-white testing
  • Natural frequency isolation
  • Critical frequency isolation
  • Modal testing
  • Vibration isolation

Model 8032S provides the test professional with two locations for air hose insertion. A regulator is included for accuracy. Some tests can restrict access to the AirRide, so The Modal Shop has engineered the 8032S to be flexible for testing efficiency and maximum results. Whether you are performing a ‘body-in-white’ test or simply isolating vibrations, the 8032S is durable and cost effective for your test equipment budget.
