Abstract : At the output end of a piping system, components subject to vibration and shock are isolated from components at the input end of the system. The isolation is achieved by a clamping arrangement in which a plurality of deformable isolation material components are inserted between the two ends. The system operates under a high fluid pressure and is arranged to enable the high pressure to act upon the isolation material to assist in forming a seal within the flow path.
