  • Cool Apps Make it Easy to Measure Your Washing Machine's Vibration

    Vibration testing used to require costly and complicated equipment that could only be purchased from specialty suppliers.  This made testing the vibration from common household appliances and other sources very difficult and expensive.  In fact, just about the only reasonable option used to be to call in an expert.  But all that has changed.

    Thanks to revolution of cool new smartphone apps that take advantage of the tilt and accelerometer sensors built into the iPhone and Android devices there is a new option.  There are a number of slick new applications available that allow anyone with a smartphone to measure just about any source of vibration anywhere they want to.  Here we are going to detail a few of these apps.  Before we go into the specific features of these apps, it is important to note that they are all designed to offer inexpensive vibration measurements using non-scientific quality sensors.  The results that they produce are amazingly accurate but for the most accurate scientific grade measurements it is best to go with professional grade equipment.  Basically, don't try to claim that your smartphone's test data disproves lab results.

    Popular iPhone Vibration Meter App:

    Vibration - By Diffraction Limited Design LLC - Price: $4.99

    This is our favorite vibration meter app.  It combines a very easy to use interface with great visual charts that make reading test results a piece of cake.  Sample rates can be set between 10Hz and 100Hz.  Results can be saved as screenshots that can then easily be shared via text or email with other devices.  Plots diagrams show motion on the x, y and z axises.  The plot readouts can be easily traced to determine exact measurement levels.  This app costs just $4.99 and runs on iOS 4.2 for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad devices.

    Popular Android Vibration Meter App:

    Vibration Monitor - Smart Tools Co. - Price: Free

    This slick little app was originally designed to measure seismic energy from an earthquake but also works great for measuring vibration from appliances like washing machines.  This app is part of a full set of Pro level smartphone based measuring tools created by Smart Tools Co.  This app requires Android 1.6 and functions well on smart phones and tablets.

    Vibration Monitoring - LUL - Price: Free

    This Android app is very similar to the Vibration Meter for iPhone.  We like it because it displays multi-axis vibration in the x, y and z directions.  This is very good for isolating specific vibration energy from multiple devices or planes of movement.  This app also allows for data to be saved to an SD card for later use and transferring large amounts of data to other devices.  This app has the longest duration of vibration measurement and can even be left on overnight for detection of vibration like earthquakes or noisy neighbors while you sleep.  Requires Android 2.2 and up and works well on smart phones and tablets.

    Now that you have an app on your mobile device you can start measuring vibration from your washing machine and dryer.  While you could place your phone directly on the noisy vibrating appliance, it is best to measure the vibration from a nearby surface such as the floor.  Most washing machines are designed to limit vibration transfer from the rotating internal wash drum to the frame of the washer.  But the noise and vibration to you hear and feel is most often the result of residual energy being transferred to the floor and structure of your home.  Start by placing your phone flat on the floor with the screen visible.  The phone should be located about 6 inches away from the washing machine.  Start your washer up with a full load of mixed laundry (small, medium and bulky items).  Most vibration is created when the washer enters the spin cycle.  Start the app when the spin cycle starts and measure the vibration.  Then install at set of our Original Silent Feet or Anti-Walk Silent Feet washer pads and test again.  Our pads absorb up to 94% of the vibration before it is transferred to the floor.  You should see a noticeable decrease in the vibration energy spikes in the app.

    Note: Adding any type of pad or flexible material under the washer will allow the appliance to visibly shake slightly more.  This is why it is best to measure vibration on the floor near the appliance. Measuring vibration energy directly on the washer will likely show increased amplitude after installing the pads, but this is a normal part of the vibration isolation process.

  • Great Products are Born in the USA

    Why is it that during tough times we Americans become so attached and attracted to products made in the USA?  For some reason it seems that most big businesses need a strong kick in the pants to even consider producing their products at home in the United States.  But we at The Vibration Solution have always believed in manufacturing our Silent Feet vibration isolation pads in the US.  We know that the best quality products come from dedicated people working to build quality goods for their friends, family neighbors and loved ones.  That isn’t a trait that is possible when companies choose to outsource their goods overseas.  Many of our competitors are working hard to find the cheapest way to make their products even when it means sacrificing quality, durability, performance and patriotism.  But we believe that producing the highest quality and best-performing products is key to earning customer loyalty.  For that reason we have always and will always build our industry leading Silent Feet and Anti-Walk Silent Feet washing machine pads at our Kent, Ohio plant.  We are proud to be sustaining and creating American jobs, especially in today’s tough economy.  Every purchase from The Vibration Solution supports American innovation, ingenuity, and craftsmanship.  Be proud of the products that you trust to protect your home and preserve your peace and quiet, buy American made Silent Feet.

  • Innovative Washing Machine Products - GE Profile Series

    If you're looking for one of the world's most advanced home washing machines then

    Side by side GE Profile washer and dryer

    The stylish design of the GE Profile series can make it the center of attention in your home

    look no further than the amazing GE Profile series.  The latest GE Profile washers and dryers include a huge range of cutting-edge new features like SmartDispense, Overnight Ready, Adaptive Vibration Control, HydroHeater, SteamRefresh, eDry, eWash and Stain Inspector.  Today, we'll cover these key features and how they can make your life easier.

    All washers make claims about great cleaning performance, gentle and fast cycles, efficiency and high tech options, but GE has taken their Profile series to the next level with these great options:

    SmartDispense: Unique pedestal that features 3 large capacity detergent and fabric softener reservoirs.  This pedestal can hold up to 6 months of detergent and will automatically integrate with the washer to ensure that the right amount is dispensed with each and every load.  It even dispenses at the precise time.  This great feature ends the mess and hassle of having to measure out detergent manually before each load.

    Overnight Ready: Now you can start the washer before you go to bed and in as little as 8 hours your load will be washed and dried without having to move the clothes to the dryer.

    HydroHeater: Special internal water heater that boosts water temperature to 160 degrees F to assist in sanitization.

    SteamRefresh: Rejuvenates clothes and fabrics using a special steam cycle to remove odors and wrinkles.

    CleanSpeak: The washer and dryer can communicate electronically to preset cycle times to help you save time.

    eDry: GE's unique dryer sensor that can reduce drying temperatures and allow for an additional 10% energy usage reduction.

    eWash: A very effective cold water wash option that is the eco-friendly way to cut energy usage in the washer by an additional 10%.

    GE SmartDispense pedestal

    The unique GE SmartDispense pedestal can hold up to 6 months of laundry detergent

    Stain Inspector: On-screen program built into the washer and designed to integrate with the SmartDispense system to clean even the toughest stains.  It uses specific combinations of pre-wash detergent, cycle tweaks and temperature adjustments to make sure that your clothes always come out clean and fresh.

    Adaptive Vibration Control (AVC): This active vibration reduction system is the latest in a long line of technology features on washing machines designed to reduce the amount of noise and vibration caused during spin cycles.  This system allows the washer to adapt to changing load balances and spin patters to reduce noise caused by out-of-balance loads.  It is still recommended that owner's install an anti-vibration pad under the washer to absorb the remaining vibration noise.

    Now that you've heard what makes the GE Profile series so impressive, remember that if you plan on installing this or any other washing machine on a second floor or plywood sub floor laundry room you will need to install a washing machine mat or pad.  Anti-vibration mats and pads assist the washer and dryer's built in vibration reduction technology and protect against the structural damage that long term appliance usage can cause.  This is no place to penny pinch if you've just invested in a great new washing machine and dryer, spend the extra few dollars now on a set of Silent Feet anti-vibration pads and save yourself costly home repair bills later.

  • The Next Generation of Anti-Vibration Pads for Washing Machines are Coming

    For years Silent Feet and Anti-Walk Silent Feet have dominated the appliance anti-vibration pad market. No other company has been able to match their level of effectiveness. But that didn't mean that our engineers got a break. Nope, they have been hard at work for the past two years developing the next generation of anti-vibration pads. In just a few days, these new pads will be officially released to the world.

    The next generation of washing machine ant-vibration pads will feature a dual rubber construction for two layers of isolation. This a change from our current model which features only one layer of isolation. We have been able to make this significant improvement by using a stiff but still flexible rubber top layer on all Silent Feet. This new top layer does double duty. While being flexible enough to absorb vibration, it also conforms to the shape and weight of your appliance to help lock it in place. This makes installation even easier and protects against appliance walking.

    Check back soon for more updates and the official release of the next generation of Silent Feet Anti-Vibration pads.

  • The Vibration Solution Continues Their Committment to Sustainable Business

    Over the past year The Vibration Solution has launched a number of sustainability projects aimed at delivering the best quality products to customers in the most environmentally responsible manner.  Some of these projects include replacing all our shipping cushioning material with locally recycled paper, using sustainable inks for printing, and reducing the size of our shipping boxes use less cardboard.  Here is a recap of all of our projects over the past year.

    In June 2008, The Vibration Solution partnered with local newspapers in North Carolina in order to use their excess newsprint as cushioning material in all of our shipping containers.  This allowed The Vibration Solution save more than 25,000 square feet of bubble wrap from being sent to landfills.

    In August 2008, The Vibration Solution replaced all the inks used at our offices with environmentally responsible sustainable substitutes and recycles all spent of our ink cartridges.  At the same time we replaced all of our office paper with 100% post-consumer recycled copy paper.

    In January 2009, The Vibration Solution redesigned our cardboard shipping boxes in order to reduce the their size.  This decreased the amount of cardboard in each box by 30%.  Besides just decreasing the amount of cardboard used this also has helped us prevent more than 2,480 lbs of CO2 each month that would have been caused by this extra weight during shipping our products to customers.

    Coming in the Spring of 2009, The Vibration Solution will begin offering all of our products including, Silent Feet, Anti-Walk Silent Feet and Industrial Silent Feet in reusable packaging that uses 80% less plastic.  This new packaging will provide all the same quality protection that our customers expect but can be reused and recycled in a variety of ways.

    The Vibration Solution continues to look for additional ways to increase the sustainability of our supply chain.  In addition to our current project to reduce the amount of plastic in all of our packaging we are also investigating the feasibility of offsetting all remaining carbon emissions related to our business.  This would make our Silent Feet the first carbon neutral vibration isolation pad for washing machines and dryers.
