Your Caterpillar engines Crankshaft Damper absorbs the torsional vibrations and shock waves generated on every single power stroke output by your diesel engine. The proper control of this twisting motion is continuously controlled by installing a Vibratech engine damper to your crankshaft. No other engine damper effectively controls torsional vibration more effectively on your Caterpillar diesel engine then the Vibratech viscous dampers. In order to ensure a long trouble-free engine life, we recommend replacing your damper with a Vibratech crankshaft balancer. The installation of a Vibratech Silicone-filled damper prevents crankshaft breakage and damage to other related engine components. Vibratech crank dampers are the highest quality American Made damper available for the Caterpillar heavy duty diesel engines.
Caterpillar Crankshaft Damper Replacement Intervals
KLM Performance recommends a regular damper inspection along with the scheduled replacement of your Cat crank damper every 300 to 500 thousand miles. Regular inspection and replacement prevent the extreme costs incurred by breaking your crankshaft or the other problems caused by a deteriorating damper. Think about purchasing a new heavy duty Caterpillar crankshaft damper to act as an insurance policy against a future broken crankshaft. You will notice an immediate difference and you will feel the engine run smoother.
Vibratech Torsional Vibration Dampers are available for these CATERPILLAR® engines:
KLM Performance is a master distributor for the Vibratech TVD - Torsional Vibration Dampers. Vibratech TVD is a global leader in viscous damper manufacturing, engineering, and torsional vibration analysis for the trucking industry. With over 70 years of viscous damper experience, you can be assured that torsional vibrations will be controlled. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions relating to replacing your diesel engines crankshaft damper.
Only a Viscous Damper from Fluidampr can effectively control destructive torsional vibration through the entire RPM range of the engine and power-output levels. , not just a specific range. The Fluidampr Viscous damper is not tuned for a specific narrowband frequency range like a rubber damper. Only a Viscous Damper using its inertia ring which can freely rotate within the ring of the laser-welded housing that is filled with silicone can control the power-robbing destructive torsional vibrations emitted by your diesel engine.
