isolator

[′ī·sə‚lād·ər]
(electronics)
A passive attenuator in which the loss in one direction is much greater than that in the opposite direction; a ferrite isolator for waveguides is an example.
(engineering)
Any device that absorbs vibration or noise, or prevents its transmission.

vibration isolator

vibration isolator (bonded-elastomeric type)
vibration isolator (coil-spring type)
A resilient support for machinery, piping, ductwork, etc., which may act as a source of vibration; designed to reduce the amount of vibration transmitted to the building structure.
