Technical Data

HOW IT WORKS

The Problem: Torsional Vibration
Torsional vibration is the end-to-end twisting and rebounding of a rotating shaft. It can be caused by internal combustion force on a crankshaft, applied torque on a camshaft, or start-stop of a PTO or electric drive. Uncontrolled torsional vibration can lead to excessive NVH, premature wear, or failure.

The Solution: Vibratech TVD’s Viscous Damper
A Vibratech TVD viscous damper is a cost-effective approach to protect the powertrain by converting torsional vibration into thermal energy. Inside the damper an inertia ring shears through a thin layer of viscous silicone. The silicone fluid is not bonded and acts as a soft spring. The amount of force and rate of velocity change will exponentially reduce the magnitude of vibration.

Vibratech TVD (formerly Houdaille) invented the torsional viscous damper in 1946 [ View Patent ].  The primary purpose then was to provide durability to commercial diesel engine applications. Today we offer the broadest powertrain application experience and lead in cross-industry innovation.

Vibratech TVD continuously invests in advanced manufacturing and quality assurance. Our commitment to collaborative efforts and building long term relationships enables over 30 leading global OEMs and Tier 1 powertrain partners to exceed their durability goals.
