Fluidampr produces the High Performance Viscous Diesel Damper trusted by Diesel truck owners everywhere!
Fluidampr Diesel Dampers are ideal for anyone looking for a replacement damper to the individual looking for a superior harmonic balancer for a diesel engine with increased power. From stock power to a full blown competition motor Fluidampr harmonic crankshaft balancers have you covered. A regular stock damper is considered a wear item and it requires both inspection and replacement. A diesel engine with performance upgrades drastically increases the harmful torsional vibrations produced with every single power stroke of your internal combustion engine.
Fluidamper produces High Performance Diesel Dampers for the following diesel engines:
Why Do I Need A Performance Harmonic Balancer / Crankshaft Damper?
The installation of any performance parts that increase the engine's power output or torque, such as intake, rods, pistons, flywheel, flexplate, fuel pump, injectors, exhaust, cams, and any ECM changes typically will increase in torsional vibration magnitude and frequency. These performance upgrades also increase torsional vibrations above a level the OEM damper was not designed to handle. A stock harmonic balancer is typically tuned for a 50hz peak variance at a particular power level. Alter any of the engines rotating assembly parameters and it may leave your critical engine components unprotected when torsional vibration is at its peak.
Signs that the OEM stock vibration damper is now failing:
The bonded rubber on the harmonic balancer is cracked.
There is bulging or missing rubber between the hub and outer ring.
Age and repeated heat cycles have caused the rubber to degrade.
Warning signs that the stock harmonic vibration damper has failed:
A collective failure will be the outer ring separating from the hub causing damage inside the engine bay.
A noticeable increase in the level of in cab vibrations.
A wobble of damper apparent during engine operation.
Dampers outer ring is now separating from the hub.
Due to the countless combinations of performance upgrades, the simplest and most cost effective solution for controlling destructive torsional vibrations is to install a Fluidampr performance diesel damper. By design, the Fluidampr viscous vibration dampers protect your engine from these torsional vibrations across a broad range of frequencies and power levels. The earlier a Fluidamper performance damper installation takes place, the more you’ll benefit from its protection, performance and the ability to ensure long term engine life.
What exactly does a Harmonic Balancer Do?
The harmonic balancer's job is to control the destructive crankshaft torsional vibration is 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 these torsional or harmonic vibrations to occur. Torsional vibrations are the end-to-end twisting or rebound motion exerted on the crankshaft during each power stroke. A torsional harmonic balancer is designed to control these forces.
