Metaldyne International UK Ltd
Our viscous damper service includes assessment of damage and subsequent technical support and repair. Our viscous damper service offers remachining for internal damage and reassembly using advanced materials to increase the life span of your dampers.
Viscous damper service provides vacuum and pressure testing to help calculate the volume of silicone fluid needed during operation.
The dampers are entirely reconditioned and reach all current safety and technical guidelines.
Our silicone testing service assesses the silicone fluid within the damper. The silicone fluid after time and constant heat absorption loses its viscosity value. Sampling plugs are fitted into the cover plate so samples of the fluid can be extracted and analysed.
Silicone testing evaluates the condition of the damper internally and its performance efficiency. We can estimate the service life of the damper. Where there is no internal damage, we recommend the overhaul is done when the silicone fluid has a 50 percent reduction in viscosity value.
Our viscous dampers operate using a high viscosity silicone fluid to create damping torque by shearing the film of fluid around the inertia ring mass. Our damper support services give you a repair and assessment service protecting the life and performance of your dampers.
During damper support we look for a number of underlining issues that may show damage to your dampers. For example, colourless or light brown shades of liquid that are free from particles indicate no internal damage.
Our selection of torsional dampers range in various sizes from 100mm to 4000mm in diameter. Our typical torsional dampers are supplied by manufacturers include ABC, Bergen Diesel, Bolnes, Fiat, Daewoo, H.H.M. China, and Mitsui.
Torsional dampers from Paxman, Mak, Guascor and Volvo are also available.
Our design skills are built upon our wealth of experience in the application of viscous torsional vibration dampers.
Our design skills also cover transmission dampers for machines tools to prevent gear chatter and reduce harshness and noise that can contribute to passenger discomfort. We also apply design skills to working with diesel engine camshaft dampers.
We are always looking forward to hearing from new customers and advising them on relevant torsional vibration characteristics and systems that would suit their needs.
