Engine Vibration Dampers
Engine Vibration Dampers, as the name implies, are parts of your vehicle's engine that absorb its vibrations. They are fitted to the crankshaft. The engine vibration damper also prevents the belt drive and other associated components of the engine from premature wear. It is also called a torsional or crankshaft damper. The damper comprises an energy-dissipating element to absorb vibrations.
When the engine is running, the torque generated due to the cylinder firing passes to the crankshaft and gets deflected. When the torque is released, it causes vibrations in the crankshaft. At specific engine speeds, the torque and vibrations in the crankshaft synchronize, causing resonance that results in excessive crankshaft stress. To avoid such a condition, the dampers are included.
Vibration dampers tend to wear out due to continuous exposure to stress and heat. A damaged vibration damper will cause the vibrations to pass outside the engine compartment, resulting in serious damage to other parts. A faulty vibration damper should be replaced at the earliest to prevent your engine from sustaining damages due to excessive vibrations.
