Fluidampr harmonic crankshaft dampers are the only viscous dampers that are race proven and built in the USA. These high performance replacement dampers are very different than your stock elastomer harmonic balancer. Fluidampr domestic performance dampers protect across a broad frequency range and can become more effective as your power level is increased. These dampers are designed as an application specific replacement crankshaft dampers.
Due to the countless combinations of performance upgrades possible the simplest and most cost effective solution for controlling dangerous torsional vibrations is to install a Fluidampr high performance domestic viscous damper on your engine. By design, Fluidampr viscous vibration dampers protect your engine from torsional vibrations across a broad range of frequencies and power levels. A viscous vibration damper also continuously self-tunes in real time to adapt to your next engine modification. The earlier a Fluidampr performance damper is installed, the more you will benefit from its protection, performance and the ability to ensure long term engine life.
The harmonic balancer job is to control the destructive crankshaft torsional vibrations. These vibrations are produced with each power stroke of the engine during the combustion process. The power cycle of the engine generates a twist and rebound effect upon the engine's crankshaft which causes torsional vibrations or harmonic vibrations. Torsional vibrations are the end-to-end twisting or rebound motion exerted on the crankshaft during each power stroke. A torsional harmonic balancer controls these forces and allows for increased valve train and timing efficiency. The other benefits obtained by the installation of a viscous crankshaft damper are a reduction in the wear of critical engine components such as main bearings, oil pump and the crankshaft itself.
