Fluidampr performance harmonic dampers can increase torque and horsepower, reduce harmonics, and lengthen the life of your engine.
A new Fluidampr harmonic damper on your diesel truck will not only protect your engine from destructive torsional vibrations, but will also increase TORQUE and HORSEPOWER output. Today’s high- performance diesel engines can easily be modified to increase their power output levels, but when a diesel programmer or chip is installed on your motor, the torsional vibrations are increased—leaving your motor vulnerable to torsional vibrations and costly damage.
Save your crank and more—by installing a new Fluidampr today.
Fluidampr® performance dampers offer the best protection against torsional vibrations. Whether your motor is performance-tuned or stock, it will run more efficiently with a viscous Fluidampr® installed.
Torsional Vibrations or harmonics can destroy your engine's crankshaft and bearings. These vibrations also rob horsepower and torque from the engine. Stock dampers utilize rubber or elastomer to control torsional vibrations, and this material breaks down quickly over time. It also limits the capabilities of the damper so it will not operate correctly throughout the entire RPM range. Fluidampr® Harmonic Dampers use a viscous silicone fluid, an internal inertia ring, and a laser-sealed housing. The precision assembly used to construct a Fluidampr harmonic damper is the most effective way to control torsional twisting.
Fluidampr® performance harmonic dampers have been tested on both stock and performance-tuned diesel pickups. Dynamometer tests have shown consistent increases in both horsepower and torque in the Cummins, Powerstroke, and Duramax motors.
Each time the air/fuel mixture inside a cylinder is ignited, the combustion creates a torque spike that is applied to the crankshaft through the piston and rod. This torque spike is so severe that it not only turns the crankshaft, it actually twists the crankshaft ahead of its normal rotation—and then the crankshaft rebounds. This twisting action is known as torsional vibration.
When these torque spikes and forces get into phase with the natural frequency, critical torsional harmonic vibrations occur that can be seriously destructive to the bearings and the crankshaft. Fluidampr high-performance harmonic dampers are designed to control those destructive vibrations.
Why do you need a Fluidampr high- performance harmonic damper?
Without a crankshaft damper, or with an improperly designed or worn-out damper, your engine will produce torsional vibrations. These vibrations induce a back-and-forth oscillation through the engine's crankshaft.
When these oscillations begin to collide with other vibration frequencies of the same magnitude, they amplify and resonate, creating a destructive force. When these destructive forces repeatedly happen they result in worn timing gears, timing chains, irregular valve train lash, destroyed main bearings, fractured accessory pulley mounts, and even crankshaft failure. A worn-out OEM damper is the leading cause of broken crankshafts. Protect yourself from catastrophic engine failure by installing a Fluidampr Performance Damper.
