Rowan Tri-Brid™ Improved Universal Engine Support System - Tri-Brid Adjustable Epoxy Chock
The Tri-Brid™ Epoxy Chock System is a universal machine support system, meaning it will fit a machine base that is machined flat and true, or in combination with a pourable epoxy chock can be used with worn fretted surfaces, or "waffle" bottoms.
The top plate is made of a strong epoxy composite and precision machined to match the steel sole plate. Infinite adjustment over the range of ±.028 inches is accomplished by precision tapered surfaces. Both the epoxy chock material (when used), as well as the Tri-Brid™ composite material provides heat insulation to reduce thermal humping of the machine being supported.
