Has anyone had any experience with transferring a compressive force through the baseplate interface with a neoprene pad underneath used as a vibration reduction measure? The situation is a heat exchanger to be supported by an existing slab-on-grade and the mechanical engineer wants to reduce the vibrations. One way could be to use leveling nuts, but does that void neoprene pad performance?
