What is a Harmonic Balancer?

High-Performance Viscous Harmonic Dampers provide dynamometer-proven results. Installation of a proven performance crankshaft damper is money well spent when you're increasing the power output or needing to replace your OEM crankshaft damper. Installing a viscous damper is a necessary replacement or upgrade to control destructive torsional crankshaft vibrations and promote a longer engine life. These viscous harmonic engine balancers are designed as a high-performance alternative damper to control vibrations in your engine at all power levels and engine RPMs. A harmonic balancer provides improved valve train operation and timing efficiency, plus it will reduce wear on critical engine components such as main bearings, oil pump, and the crankshaft itself. When repairs or power upgrades are planned, your engine's harmonic balancer is overlooked.  Power upgrades are the main reason why a viscous damper is so essential. Using the OEM or low-cost damper could be the single most costly mistake you make on your engine. The installation of any Performance modification can overwhelm the OEM elastomer harmonic balancer. Suppose your engine does not have a Harmonic Damper that controls the destructive crankshaft torsional vibrations that occur while the engine is running. In that case, you are now subject to power-robbing losses and expensive repairs. The installation of a Fluidampr performance damper for long-lasting optimum protection.

Fluidampr and Vibratech Viscous Harmonic Balancer benefits:

  • Only a viscous damper will reduce wear on the main bearings and timing gear.
  • The viscous damper Provides a more accurate and stable valve train operation.
  • Increases power output
  • Control destructive torsional vibrations.
  • Optimizes engine protection across the entire RPM range and power output levels.
  • Reduces the risk of crankshaft failure.
  •  Increases engine component life.
  • Regularly self-tune at all engine RPMs and power levels.
  • A Viscous Crankshaft Damper lowers the risk of crankshaft failure.
  • They are manufactured as direct bolt-on replacement dampers for each particular engine application.
  • They are approved for use on both race and street applications.
  • Viscous dampers are a superior replacement option for crankshaft dampers, offering increased control of destructive vibrations.

The Fluidampr Performance Harmonic Balancers are available for the following types of engines:

The Vibratech Heavy Duty Viscous Crankshaft Dampers are available for:

 Fluidampr and Vibratech Torsional Vibration Damper Facts

1. Most stock dampers are tuned absorbers and do not work when the engine has been altered or modified from the original set-up.

2. The crankshaft fluid damper is not a balancer. Its job is to control the destructive torsional vibrations.

3. The silicone inside a Fluidampr crank vibration damper will not expire and is not affected by temperature change.

4. An externally balanced assembly should be balanced with only the counterweight or stock damper installed.

5. The best crankshaft dampers are available from Horschel Motorsports.

6. Horschel Motorsports invented the Viscous Damper in 1946 and continued this tradition as an ISO 9001-certified facility.

7. The Fluidampr and Vibratech Viscous Crankshaft Damper products are proudly made in the USA!

Your engine's crankshaft damper can also be referred to as a:

  • Harmonic Balancer,
  • Crank Pulley Damper
  • Crankshaft Damper
  • Vibration Damper
  • Torsional Vibration Damper
  • Crank Vibration Damper
  • Crankshaft Fluid Damper
  • Harmonic Damper

These common names associated with the device connected to the crankshaft of an engine to reduce torsional vibration. The harmonic balancer can also be a pulley for the engine's drive belts.

Fluidampr and Vibratech are manufacturers of a 100% American Made product line.
